  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the brisket in a roasting pan fat side up. In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, soup mix and ginger ale; pour over the brisket. Arrange carrots and onion around the edge of the roast if using. Cover the roast with a lid or aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 2 hours in the preheated oven. Remove the cover, and cook for 1 more hour. Let stand for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

This was so good! My family loved this recipe! We added potatoes! This recipe has a sweet taste to it. I will be making this every St.Pattys day.

I have made this recipe many times and it never fails to please. I usually add more carrots and onions than called for, along with a few potatoes. Always comes out moist, tender and delicious.
