This is one of my best recipes. It creates a very juicy and tender brisket and is very easy to make. The best brisket to use will have a little fat on it.

  1. To make the marinade, whisk together the liquid smoke, steak sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl.
  2. Line a roasting pan with aluminum foil. Place brisket with the fattier-side facing upwards in the center of the pan. Pour half of the marinade over the brisket. Using a food injector, inject the rest of the marinade into the brisket. Seal the brisket in the foil and refrigerate for at least 16 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Open foil and layer onion slices on the brisket. Reseal the foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 6 hours. Remove the brisket and slice. Reseal the foil and bake the sliced brisket for 1 hour more.

This was delicious. And I sort of made it by mistake. I know very little about beef. And I wanted to marinate something. So I picked up a brisket at the store, not knowing what kind of meat to buy. I went home and started marinating it. Then I called my mom and she said "No, no... you don't marinate a brisket. Take it out of your marinade and throw it in a crock pot." But I was determined. So I searched for "marinated brisket" and this was the only recipe that came up. It's a good thing it did... because it saved my brisket. And it came out beautifully. Tender, juicy, and delicious. If I can make this one, anyone can. Totally easy, and totally good. Thank you!


This was very easy and had a great taste. I used A-1 Bold & Spicy steak sauce. After cooking for 6 hrs it didn't need to be cooked further. I've already had people ask for the recipe.


This was one of the best briskets I've ever tasted. Very tender and very tasty!
