Chili sauce, brown sugar and garlic season this robust beef brisket from Margaret Haugh Heilman of Houston, Texas. Topped with tender onions and served with a slightly sweet gravy, the entree tastes special enough for company.

Ingredients

  • 1 fresh beef brisket (about 4 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 can (12 ounces) beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  1. Place beef in a roasting pan. Sprinkle with pepper and top with onion. Combine the beer, chili sauce, brown sugar and garlic; stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour over meat.
  2. Cover and bake at 325° for 3-1/2 hours. Uncover; bake 15-30 minutes longer or until onions are lightly browned and meat is tender. Remove meat and onions to a serving platter and keep warm.
  3. Pour drippings and loosened browned bits into a saucepan. Skim fat. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir into pan drippings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Slice meat thinly across the grain. Serve with gravy.
