Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from brisket, and discard; sprinkle brisket evenly with salt and pepper, and dredge in flour.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add brisket to butter, and brown on both sides. Transfer to a roasting pan.

  • Whisk together coffee, wine, and ketchup; pour over brisket.

  • Bake, covered, at 350° for 4 hours or until tender, basting occasionally with pan juices. Remove brisket, reserving drippings; cut brisket with a sharp knife across grain into thin slices.

  • Strain drippings using a gravy strainer, discarding fat. Serve hot drippings with brisket.

  • Note: Leftover gravy may be frozen to serve over rice or potatoes at a later date.
