Coca-Cola Brisket


  • 1 (5- to 7-pounds) brisket (washed and drained)
  • 1 small onion (peeled, trimmed, and chopped)
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup red wine (dry)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Coco-Cola
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Place the brisket in a roasting pan.  Put the onion, oil, wine, honey, Coco-Cola, ketchup, mustard, and paprika into the work bowl of a food processor and pulse until chopped.  Pour over the brisket.  Cover and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Bake the brisket, covered, in the preheated oven to approximately 4 hours, or until a digital instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the brisket reads 190 F, for well done.

Step 3: When cool, thinly slice the brisket against the grain.  It is important to slice the brisket correctly.  If the meat is not sliced against the grain, it will be tough.

Tip: It is best to prepare the brisket a day before you plan to serve it, as the taste is enhanced after it sits in the fridge.
