Easy and festive brisket, straight from my grandma in Newfoundland. This recipe is goof-proof and very tasty. Really good with a glass of Lambrusco, a sparkling red wine, or with ale.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir together the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, brown sugar, and meat tenderizer. Rub the spice mixture generously all over the brisket. Place the meat on a baking sheet with the fat layer up.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour; remove from oven, and lower the oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Mix soy sauce with water in a bowl, and pour the liquid into a roasting pan. Transfer the brisket into the roasting pan. Sprinkle the meat with the crushed pineapple.
  4. Cover the roasting pan tightly with foil, return to oven, and bake for 3 more hours. Cool for 30 minutes before slicing.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Will make again. From my husband, "mommy's brisket is good!" It was delicious - even without the pinneaples (I didn't have any on hand).

Excellent flavor! I only had a 1.5 lb brisket so I quartered the recipe (and also omitted the pineapple). But I used the baking directions from the "Easy Bake Brisket" recipe because it seemed easier. I would highly recommend this ingredient combination though!

I found this recipe when searching for something to do with a brisket I had. My family loved!!! We now make it for every special occasion and big get together. Would definitely say give it a try. My dad even likes it and he doesn't care for brisket.
