                You don't need Teef
                      To eat my Beef....

This is by far the easiest most flavorful,moist beef brisket recipe you will find anywhere.

 And NO SMOKER  necessary. 

I made it easy for all my little Homefakers out there. 

Why spend all that money and unnecessary time, when the results are the same if not better in the end? 

(Combine following ingredients in a small kettle...Bring mixture to a boil, Then simmer for 30 minutes...let cool)
4 cups water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup salt
1 onion cut up
1/4 cup liquid smoke
2 T. mustard
3 Bay leaves
1 T. garlic powder
1 pinch red pepper flakes
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 T. black pepper

Place an approximately 5 lb. beef brisket(NOT CORNED BEEF) in a  high sided baking dish, oven bag, or aluminum foil pan fat side down. Add the cooled marinade and cover if using a bowl. Place in refrigerator overnight (at least 10 hours not more than 24 hours). Let the meat and marinade work it's magic while you get your beauty sleep.

6 1/2 hours before you want to serve, preheat oven to 300 degrees. Bake your brisket fat side up in the marinade for 4 hours covered, and no peeking! Next drain the marinade off except 1 cup. At this time you have the option to add barbecue sauce(16 oz.) if you like. My hubby hates it, so we do not. Continue baking covered for the remaining 2 1/2 hours at 300 degrees.

Cool then slice against the grain, about 1/2 inch thick, serve with gravy or your favorite barbecue sauce...ENJOY!

 And leftovers make great sandwiches ...add sliced onion, baby                       kale, tomatoes, cheese and mayo..

                     Happy Mother's Day!!
