Comments: 0



  • 4 to 5 pound brisket, covered with ¼ inch of fat
  • Kosher salt and freshly milled pepper
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups Chicken or Beef stock or canned low-sodium broth
  • Barbecue Sauce


Preheat the oven to 325° F.

Let the brisket come to room temperature.  Salt and pepper the meat.  In a large heavy skillet, heat the oil over moderately high heat.  Brown the brisket, fat side down, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until a crust is formed.  Turn and brown the other side.

Place the brisket in a shallow baking pan with the chicken stock and bake for 2 hours.  Coat the brisket on both sides with half of the sauce.  Return to the oven and continue to bake for 2 to 3 hours, or until tender.

Remove and let the brisket rest for 10 minutes before slicing.  Serve with the remaining barbecue sauce.
