This is simple comfort food that is easy to assemble, and uses a minimum of ingredients. What comes out of that oven is pure brisket heaven.

I experimented with all kinds of spices and seasonings, and finally settled on two basic spices: Salt & Pepper… that’s it. I also wanted something that would flavor the brisket, and stand up to the long cooking time, and I decided on sliced yellow onions, and some garlic. Simple ingredients… Lip Smacking goodness.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Beef Essentials: Oven-Baked Brisket & Onions

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Place a rack in the bottom position, and preheat the oven to 325f (165c).
  4. Add the sliced onions, garlic, and chicken stock to a large heavy-bottomed pot.
  5. Chef’s Note: The pot will need a tight-fitting lid, and be big enough for the brisket and other ingredients. A 6-quart (5.5liter) size is perfect.
  6. Salt and pepper the brisket on both sides, and add to the pot, fat-side up.
  7. Cover and place into the preheated oven, and cook until the brisket is fork tender, about 1 hour per pound.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  9. PLATE/PRESENT
  10. Slice thinly and serve with some of the onions, and cooking liquid. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
