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."

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 2

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

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.
