Serves: 10


Step 1

Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl to make a rub. Season brisket on all sides with the rub. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 3

While oven is preheating, sear brisket on both sides for 5 minutes on a pan over medium-high heat.

Step 4

After searing, place in a roasting pan and roast in the oven uncovered for 1 hour.

Step 5

Add beef stock and enough water to yield about 1/2 inch of liquid in the roasting pan.

Step 6

Lower oven to 300 degrees F, cover pan tightly and continue to cook until fork tender, about 3 hours.

Step 7

Trim the fat and slice meat thinly across the grain. Top with juice from the pan.

Step 8

Serve sliced brisket with sides like grilled corn, baked beans, and Martin’s Dinner Potato Rolls or Potato Bread.

Or, serve as a sandwich on Martin’s Sandwich Potato Rolls with your choice of barbecue sauce.
