This is another recipe from Mom.  I grew up loving this, and since being married Z has come to love it too!  We don’t make this very often, but whenever we see brisket on sale, we enjoy this dinner!  This is a great meal to make the day before, and then re-heat before serving and enjoying.


  • Brisket
  • 1 can coke
  • 1 pkg. dried onion soup mix
  • 1 bottle chili sauce

Score the non-fat side of the brisket across the grain.  Put fat-side up in roasting pan.

Mix and pour over the meat: 1 can coke, 1 pkg. dried onion soup mix, and 1 bottle chili sauce.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for about 4 hours or 30 min. per pound or 190 degree internal temp. or fork tender!!! (lots of choices!)

Remove and let cool slightly.

Drain drippings into a bowl and refrigerate.  When cooled skim-off the fat.

Using a knife, remove excessive fat from the brisket.  Slice cross-grain into 1/2-3/4 inch slices.

Carefully place the sliced meat back into your serving dish. Pour sauce (which has the fat removed) over the sliced meat making sure the sauce gets between each slice. Cover and refrigerate or freeze.

When ready to serve placed covered dish into a 350 degree oven for 30-60 minutes.
