The Valley Beth Shalom Sisterhood has shared their best dishes with Encino Patch. Today we're featuring Beer-Braised Brisket. Braising tenderizes beef brisket and makes a gravy full of vegetable beef flavor and enriched by beer.
Serve the finished dish of meltingly tender beef and its accompanying rich sauce over a bed of egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Fresh vegetables are all you need to round out this meal.
Makes 10-12 servings
1 brisket or London Broil (5 to 7 pounds)
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 package onion soup mix
1 cup chili sauce
1 can beer (12 ounce)
Season brisket with seasoned salt. Rub meat with brown sugar, drizzle with vinegar, cover with chili sauce and sprinkle with beer. Bake at 325° uncovered for 2 hours. Cover and continue cooking till done (1 1/2 to 3 hours). Remove meat from gravy and cool in refrigerator overnight. Skim fat from gravy, add small amount of water to dilute gravy. Slice meat and put in an oven-proof casserole. Cover with gravy and seal with foil. Heat at 325° for 1 hour.
