Brisket in Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (3 Reviews)

By

Cola in the sauce helps tenderize brisket. Make the brisket the day before and reheat for best flavor.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours, 30 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours, 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 two-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
  • 6 large cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1-1/2 cups Coca-Cola or ginger ale
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 Tablespoon coarsely ground pepper or to taste
  • 1 six- to seven-pound first-cut brisket, rinsed and patted thoroughly dry

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place onion, ginger, garlic, Dijon mustard, red wine, cola, ketchup, honey, cider vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, cloves, and pepper into a food processor, and process with steel blade until smooth.

Place brisket, fat side up, into a heavy baking pan just large enough to hold it, and pour sauce over it. Cover tightly and bake for 2 hours. Turn brisket over and bake uncovered for one more hour or until fork-tender. Cool, cover brisket and refrigerate overnight in cooking pan.

The next day, transfer brisket to a cutting board, cut off fat and cut with a sharp knife against grain, to desired thickness. Remove any congealed fat from sauce and bring to a boil on top of stove.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Taste sauce to see if it needs reducing. If so, boil it down for a few minutes or as needed. Return meat to sauce and warm in oven for 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Yield: 12 servings

Fantastic and Easy, Member SuzieBl

This recipe is so easy and delicious. I am making it again. This time for my boyfriend for Hanukkah but this makes a fabulous brisket for any occasion. Last time I slow cooked potatoes and carrots in the sauce. Next time I am serving it over mashed potatoes for the perfect comfort food.This time I am serving it over the egg noodles as recommended. Great that you can make this ahead. Perfect for guests or just a very yummy meal.
