  • Prep: 10 minutes
  • Cook: 3 hours

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 lbs of a brisket cut of beef
  • 3/4 cup barbeque sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup of water

Method

1 Preheat oven to 300ºF.

2 In a bowl, mix together the barbeque sauce, soy sauce, and water.

3a Place the brisket roast on a large piece of aluminum foil. Spread the BBQ sauce mixture generously over meat. Wrap the brisket in aluminum foil and place it in a roasting pan. Bake for 1 hour for every 1 pound of meat.

Alternatively,

3b Place the barbecue sauce and the brisket in an oven roasting bag. Sprinkle a teaspoon of flour into the bag. Poke a couple small holes in the bag. Place the bag in a roasting pan. You may find that the cooking time is faster with this method, or you can reduce the oven temperature to 275°F.
