Our family loves a good brisket! We are always trying new ways to make it. This recipe comes from my Mom and seems to be the new family favorite.
4-5 lb first cut brisket
1/2 C ketchup
1/2 C bottled bbq sauce
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C apple cider vinegar
1/2 C duck sauce
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/2 C water
3-4 bay leaves
Brush oil on meat and sear on all sides to seal in juices. Place in a 3 qt. roasting pan. Combine ketchup, bbq sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, duck sauce, onion soup mix with water. Spread sauce over brisket and place bay leaves around the pan.
Bake uncovered for about 2 hours or until tender.
Cool. Cut meat into thin slices and return to pan, cover with foil and cook another 1/2 hour.
Before serving remove bay leaves from sauce.
