  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Season the brisket on all sides with salt and pepper, and place in a glass baking dish. Cover with a layer of sliced onions. In a medium bowl, mix together the beer, chili sauce, and brown sugar. Pour over the roast. Cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 3 hours in the preheated oven. Remove the aluminum foil, and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Let the brisket rest and cool slightly before slicing and returning to the dish. Reheat in the oven with the sauce spooned over the sliced meat.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This recipe definitely lives up to its name - the preparation was almost to easy! The chili sauce gives a wonderful flavor and the beer tenderizes the meat to perfection. I prepared this meal i...

Following previous reviews about the recipe being too sweet, I marinated the meat over night in a mixture of 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup oil, 2 teaspoons of salt and 6 cloves of garlic. Very Good!

I agree with other reviewers that this recipe was a bit too sweet; I am going to reduce the brown sugar next time and also cook at a lower temperature, as it also came out dry. But despite this...
