Pre-cooked/Pre-sliced brisket OR one regular boneless beef brisket (3lb or larger)
1 package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 Can Whole Cranberry Sauce or 1 (12 ounce) package of fresh cranberries
Heat oven to *350. Place brisket in a 9X13 baking pan. Mix 1 can of whole cranberry sauce and 1 envelope of onion soup mix (per 3lb brisket). Pour sauce mixture over brisket. Cover with foil and cook according to directions. **If you are using a regular boneless brisket that is NOT precooked, you will allow brisket to cook about 3 hours, until brisket is extremely tender. Brisket will get very dark/caramelized; this adds flavor, and doesn't mean that you have overcooked it.
**Walmart carries a great pre-cooked-pre-sliced brisket in the meat section where the "pre-made" food is (such as the tubs of macaroni and mashed potatoes)
**Fresh cranberries may be substituted for canned cranberry, if desired.
This recipe is WONDERFUL!!! And so very easy!! If your like me, we cook a LOT of chicken, so it's nice to have something a little different! I got this recipe from a friend, Amanda Harris, who is an AWESOME cook at caterer! Enjoy!
