The Boyfriend Brisket Recipe

avatarJennafer Ashley

Let this simple brisket recipe do all the work as it tenderizes in the oven in a steamy bath of juicy drippings and savory beef stock. The end result is melt-in-your-mouth brisket and a rich, flavorful broth.

Cozy up to this easy recipe that’s perfect for a weeknight supper or a big holiday dinner. Before cooking, you’ll want to let the beef rest at room temperature for a short period of time. This will allow for even cooking throughout while also bringing the internal temperature to the ideal range. It also helps to lock in more juice and cuts down on the cooking time.

The fat layer on top of the brisket will need to be scored since this allows the fat drippings to drain easily as it roasts. This will help tenderize the meat while also allowing the beef drippings to marry with the stock and onions. Hello, dinner.

Tip: Save the drippings to create a savory gravy for smothering the brisket. Simply whisk two teaspoons of arrowroot powder with two cups of stock and drippings in a medium saucepan over medium heat until thickened.
