  • 4lb beef brisket, trimmed w/ a thin layer of fat remaining
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 Tbsp paprika
  • 2 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup sharp mustard – optional for dippin’
  • 1/2 cup prepared horseradish in vinegar –optional for dippin’
  • 2 cups sour cream – optional for dippin’


  • Pre-heat oven to 350F.  Grab your roasting pan and rack.
  • Mix salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika together in a small bowl.  Rub this on both sides of the brisket.
  • Mix horseradish and sour cream together.  Add salt to taste.  Cover and place in fridge.
  • Place brisket (fat side up) on top of the roasting rack in the pan.  Add enough beef broth to cover the bottom of the pan by 1/2″.  Cover with aluminum foil or a lid and place in oven 1 hour.
  • Take out of oven and remove lid/foil.  Reduce heat to 300F and cook uncovered ~ 3 hours or until fork tender.
  • Cool ~ 10 minutes, slice thinly (trim any fat off the top if desired), and serve with horseradish sour cream and/or sharp mustard on the side.  You can also drizzle the brisket with the pan sauce if you like.  Happy Eating! Beckie


  • If your oven runs hot, the beef broth will evaporate.  Check it half way through and add a little more beef broth if needed.  You can always strain the fat off this after it’s done cooking and use the sauce as a dipping Au Jus.
  • Don’t have all the spices?  Just use salt & pepper and skip the rest.
  • Don’t have beef broth?  You can use chicken or vegetable broth, or just use water if you’re in a pinch.
