Brisket with Sweet Peas and Pasta

Happy Mother's Day to all !!  I made a special treat for myself today.  My favorite dish...Brisket.  We served this with pasta and steamed peas.  Leftover makes a great sandwich.

  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 (4 pound) beef brisket
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine the chili powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, sugar, and seasoning salt in a medium bowl, and blend thoroughly. Apply rub to surface of brisket.
  3. Cook brisket, uncovered, in preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and add beef broth to roasting pan. Lower oven temperature to 300 degrees F, cover roasting pan tightly with foil, and cook 3 more hours. Let brisket rest 30 minutes before slicing.
