Baking Beef Brisket

Yesterday Amber, Trey and I made dinner together. Recently I found this great recipe for Beef Brisket so we made that together. It was a nice time to bond together as a family. It was also a good learning experience for Amber and Trey. The meal turned out very good. Everyone loved it! The meat was very tender and it's the kind of stuff you just can't stop eating! Below is the recipe for those interested.

Beef Brisket
• 4 lbs beef brisket
• 1/3 bottle liquid smoke
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup ketchup
• 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
• 1 teaspoon chili powder
• 1 cup water
• 1 teaspoon celery seed
• 1 cup brown sugar
1.Best if this is done the day before serving: Rub brisket with liquid smoke and salt.
2.Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
3.Bake covered for 3 hours.
Do not rush, as this will insure the meat tender.
Cool and refrigerate several hours until firm (or overnight).
This makes it easy to slice. (I usually do up to this step the day before).
7.Slice meat very thinly and cover with sauce.
For sauce: Combine all ingredients in saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.
Place meat in baking dish and cover with sauce.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake until heated through about 30 minutes.
