Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons light molasses, honey, or sorghum

Preparation

1. Stir together first 6 ingredients in a small bowl to form a paste. Rub on brisket, and let stand at room temperature 1 hour.
