Brisket (Lorraine)

Brisket (Lorraine)

  • Yield: 10 servings
  • Cook time:5 Hours


  • 3 medium onions
  • 4 pound(s) brisket
  • salt and pepper


Place sliced onions in bottom of roaster.

Season meat and place on top of onions (fat side down).

Roast uncovered at 350 F for 3 – 3 ½ hours ( 45 min. per lb.)

When roast is almost ready, turn oven off. Cover pan tightly with tin foil. Leave in oven until cool (about ¾ hour.) Refrigerate.

Next day: Remove roast from roaster and slice width wise.

Put slices back into the roaster with the gravy and onions.

Cover and heat at 350 F for 1 hour. Potatoes may be added at this time and should be basted with the gravy. 8 – 10 servings.

I can never find such a small brisket so I usually have one that closer to 5 or 6 pounds. Don’t forget, it will shrink to almost half its size.
