3 tbsp olive oil
1 beef brisket, trimmed of fat (about 3 to 4 lbs)
salt and black pepper to taste
1 tbsp granulated garlic
1 cup beef broth
1 onion, minced
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp liquid smoke
1/2 cup coca cola
4 tbsp packed, dark brown sugar, divided
2 cups tomato puree
1 can (12 oz) coca cola
2 tbsp onion powder
2 tbsp hot pepper sauce
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. While heating oil, season brisket liberally with salt, black pepper and granulated garlic.
Brown brisket in skillet about 4 to 5 minutes per side: transfer to large covered casserole or Dutch oven.
Deglaze skillet with beef broth, scraping bottom of pan. Add onion, red pepper flakes and liquid smoke. When onion is translucent, add 1/2 cup Coca Cola. Pour mixture over meat: sprinkle with 2 Tbsp brown sugar.
Braise brisket 5 to 6 hours, basting every 1/2 hour. When falling apart, remove meat: set aside to cool slightly and add remaining 2 Tbsp brown sugar, tomato puree, 1 can Coca Cola, onion powder, hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce to Dutch oven. Increase heat to 400 degrees F and cook, uncovered, 30 minutes. When cool enough, slice meat into 1/2 inch slices. Return brisket to Dutch oven and baste with sacue. Lower heat to 250 degrees F, and cook 30 minutes more. Serve as is or on rolls.
