Serving Suggestions

Serve with mashed potatoes, polenta, or egg noodles. Great with horseradish sauce.


1 Tbsp. Seasoning of choice:

2 Tbsp. honey

2 Tbsp. yellow mustard

1 (4 to 5 lb.) trimmed brisket flat

1 Tbsp. vegetable oil

1 yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced

6 garlic cloves, chopped

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe


Step 1: Season brisket

Stir together Mayan Sea Salt, Coarse Black Malabar Pepper, Onion & Garlic Tableside Sprinkle, seasoning of choice, honey, and mustard. Rub mixture all over brisket. Set seasoned brisket in a large baking dish, fat side up, and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour.

Step 2: Cook brisket

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 250 degrees. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 min. Add garlic and cook 1 more min. Remove from heat and stir in beef broth. Spoon onion-broth mixture over brisket. Cover dish tightly with foil. Bake for 4 to 5 hours or until brisket reaches 195 degrees and is fork tender. Remove from oven, replace foil, and rest brisket for 50 to 60 min. before slicing thinly across the grain. Serve with onions and juice spooned over the top.
