Maple-Soy Brisket Recipe
What You’ll Need:
1 cup pure maple syrup
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup apricot preserves
1 pouch (about 1 oz) onion soup mix
½ cup tomato sauce
Pepper to taste
1 (5 lbs.) beef brisket
What To Do:
In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup, soy sauce, apricot preserves, onion soup mix, tomato sauce and pepper.
Place the brisket in a roasting pan, and pour the marinade overtop. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. If you don’t have that much time to spare, several hours will do in a pinch.
When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 325°F.
Cover the brisket with foil and cook, covered, for 3 hours.
Remove the foil and cook, uncovered, for an additional 30 minutes.
Let cool, then refrigerate the brisket (this aids in slicing).
When the brisket is cold, skim and discard the fat with a spoon.
Remove the brisket from the sauce and slice thinly against the grain.
Add it back into the pan with the sauce.
About 1 hour before you’re ready to serve, preheat the oven to 350°F.
Place the brisket in the oven and reheat, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes, spooning the sauce overtop a few times.
Serve at once and enjoy!
