Smothered (Recipe: Smothered Beef Brisket)


  • Smothered Beef Brisket
  • 2 flat cut beef briskets
  • 2 tablespoons homemade seasoning mix
  • 3 large sweet onions peeled and sliced in half rings
  • 8 carrots chopped
  • 5 to 6 stalks of celery chopped including tops
  • 1 apple cut in eights
  • 2 lemons sliced
  • 2 15 ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 strip bacon uncooked


  • Rub seasoning mix all over briskets and store in refrigerator overnight.
  • The next day, make a bed of prepared fruit and vegetables in a large roasting pan. Put the briskets in the bed and cover with a blanket of sauce that is made by combining tomato sauce, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire.
  • Place a strip of bacon atop the blanket of sauce on each brisket. Do this just because. Bacon needs no reason.
  • Cook for about 3 1/2 hours at 325 degrees until the liquid in the sauce has evaporated and the meat is very tender. If the sauce is getting too brown before the meat is as tender as you would like., add a little water to the pan and cover.
