A Recipe for Today
5-6 lbs. brisket
3 onions sliced
1-2 envelopes of Lipton’s dry onion soup or Lipton’s mushroom soup packet
2-3 cans golden mushroom soup mixed with ¼ -½ cups water
4 peeled and sliced carrots
4 potatoes peeled and quartered
Place sliced onions in the bottom of the bag;
Spread the dry onion soup. Pour over the mushroom soup.
Place the brisket on top and cover with chunks of carrots and potatoes.
Close the bag.
Cook at 325˚ for 2.5 – 3 hours until fork-tender;
Remove meat from the bag. Keep the gravy;
Slice the meat at an angle across the grain;
Place the meat slices into a Pyrex rectangular dish;
Pour gravy on top and add more golden mushroom soup;
Wrap in thin foil and seal edges. Bake one more hour at 325˚. This is the key to a terrific brisket.
