Beef brisket takes a Southern detour with the addition of cola soft drink--one of the South's favorite sodas. For your next special occasion, let Southern Baked Brisket be the "belle of the ball."

  • 1 (12-oz.) bottle chili sauce
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 1/4 cups cola soft drink
  • 1 (1.9-oz.) package dry onion soup mix
  • 1 (3- to 4-lb.) beef brisket flat, trimmed

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together first 3 ingredients and both envelopes from soup mix package in a large bowl.

  2. Place brisket, fat side up, in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan. Pour chili sauce mixture over brisket.

  3. Bake, tightly covered, at 350° for 4 to 4 1/2 hours or until fork-tender. Remove from oven; let stand 20 minutes. Cut brisket across the grain into thin slices using a sharp knife, and pour pan juices over slices.
