Grandma’s home-style brisket
(Serves 6 to 8)
When I asked my grandma for her brisket recipe, what you see here is how it came to me written out. Since then, I have always lovingly referred to the dish as “Grandma’s Home-Style Brisket” even though in various subsequent versions of the dish I’ve made, I’ve added everything from oyster sauce and white balsamic vinegar to beer and other elements.
However, this original version from my grandma will always produce a smoky, rich, tender brisket with loads of flavour. She’s a great lady, and this is a great dish. I love her; you’ll love her brisket. Serve this with roasted potatoes.
4 pounds beef brisket
1 cup black coffee, at room temperature
3 x 12-ounce cans of ginger ale
1 x 12-ounce can of Coke
1 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 large onion, sliced
Place the brisket in a large sealable plastic bag. Pour in the coffee, 1 can of ginger ale, the Coke, and the soy sauce. Seal and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat the oven to 250°F.
Place the brisket in a large roasting pan, fat side up with the marinade, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir well. Cover tightly with aluminium foil.
Roast the brisket for about 2 hours, then remove the pan from the oven and add the remaining 2 cans of ginger ale. Cover the pan again with the aluminium foil and return it to the oven for another 90 minutes. Remove the aluminium foil and cook the brisket for another 30 minutes.
Remove the brisket from the oven and let rest in the cooking liquid for at least 30 minutes before serving. To serve, place a slice or two of raw onion on a warmed platter with the brisket on top, then pour the flavourful pan juices over the whole thing.
