Southern Comfort Brisket

002 Southern Comfort BrisketIt’s smart to plan ahead if you’re thinking about making this slightly sweet brisket. Although it takes 4-5 hours to cook, it basically cooks itself as it makes it’s own sauce. All you have to do is combine theĀ  ingredients, pour over the brisket and shove it in the oven. Perfect for a potluck as is, served with cheesy grits or turned into mouth-watering brisket sliders.



  • 4-5 pounds beef brisket, lean
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup ketchup
  1. Place brisket in a large ovenproof baking pan or roaster with a lid.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, water, onion soup mix and ketchup. Pour over the brisket.
  3. Cook covered for 4 1/2 to 5 hours. Meat should be fork tender.

To serve, slice against the grain or shred. I like to serve it over cheesy grits or polenta, topped with the sauce.

To make brisket sliders, sandwich the meat (sliced or shredded) with some sauce in a sweet potato biscuit … now that’s a little bite of southern comfort!
