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
Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together first 3 ingredients and both envelopes from soup mix package in a large bowl.
Place brisket, fat side up, in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan. Pour chili sauce mixture over brisket.
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.

Fabulous! I baked the 3 3/4# brisket for 4 1/2 hours and let it rest about 1 hour and I think it was a little overdone and dry in places. Next time I would only do 4 hours. It is hard to determine doneness since it is 'tightly covered'. This recipe is sooooo easy and the flavor is great.
I prepared this for the main dish for Christmas Dinner. It was easy to cook and came out very flavorful and tender. My brisket was 4 1/2 lbs. It cooked for 4 hours and rested about an hour while I finished the rest of the meal.
