Melt In Your Mouth Brisket

Melt In Your Mouth Brisket

Serving Size: Approximately 40 thin slices


  • 3 lb. first-cut brisket
  • 2 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp. dried chives (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 2 large Spanish onions
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup honey


  1. Slice the onions in rounds. Place them in the bottom of a baking dish.
  2. Combine the paprika, garlic powder, chives and salt in a small bowl. Cover the brisket with the spice mixture. Pat it in gently until the meat can hold no more.
  3. Place the meat on top of the onions and put it into the oven at 400° F for 1 hour.
  4. Take the meat out, add the balsamic vinegar and honey, and cover the baking dish tightly. Lower the temperature to 250° F and cook for another 4 hours, until the meat is fork tender.
  5. Refrigerate the meat until completely cold (preferably overnight), then cut in thin slices against the grain. Return the sliced meat to the sauce. Reheat in the oven, or over a low flame. Serve with the onions and sauce.
