Oven-Barbecued Beef Brisket
3 1/2 pounds beef brisket
3/4 cup water
1 medium onion, chopped
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon instant beef bouillon granules
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
Trim fat from meat. Place meat in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
Stir together water, onion, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, chili
powder, bouillon granules, red pepper, and garlic. Pour over meat.
Cover with foil. Bake in a 325F oven about 3 hours, or till tender,
turning once. Remove meat, reserving juices. Thinly slice meat.
Place on a serving platter. Keep warm.
For sauce, measure juices; skim fat. If necessary, add enough water
to equal 3/4 cup. In a saucepan, stir together ketchup, brown sugar,
and flour. Stir in reserved juices. Cook and stir over medium heat
till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Serve
