Beef Brisket

July 10, 2015

One of the blessings we have received from embarking on this Kickstarter project has been meeting new people; individuals who heard about Kevin and his project, and who wanted to bless him by backing his project.  One, in particular, is Lynne Assa.  When we were seeking a recipe for brisket, Lynne shared her husband, Omran’s, recipe.  We could hardly wait to try it.  Kevin recently made this brisket, and we loved it.  It’s a great recipe for a brisket!  Thank you, Omran and Lynne, for sharing your wonderful recipe with Kevin and his followers!  Thanks to his Kickstarter Crew for backing this recipe.


1 large beef brisket, about 1-2” thick
10 cups of tomato sauce
2 onions, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of mustard
1 lemon, juiced
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire

12 sandwich buns


1 Cut out as much of the thick fat as you can from the brisket. Save the fat cutouts
to baste the meat, but not consume it.
2 In a medium-sized bowl, mix the tomato sauce with the onions, garlic, cayenne,
sugar, mustard, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. If you like a lot of sauce,
increase the amount called for above, but we suggest you maintain the same
proportion of the ingredients.
3 Put the brisket in a large oven pan. Next, pour the tomato sauce mix over the
brisket to cover all sides. Place the fat cutouts on top of the brisket. Cover the pan
tightly with aluminum foil.

4 Cook the meat in a 325°F oven for about four hours, depending on thickness and
weight. We suggest you baste the brisket every 30-35 minutes. If the sauce thickens
too much, do not hesitate to add water or tomato juice to the bottom the pan. If the
beef looks dry, we sometimes add a little butter.
5 Place the cooked brisket on top of a cutting board. Cover with aluminum foil to
keep it warm, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Now cut the brisket against the grain into
very thin pieces. Cut as much meat as you think you will eat. Save the rest in one
piece to heat next time. Use an electric knife, if you own one, to slice with more ease
into thin pieces.
6 Add a little warm water to the bottom of the pan and scrape out any dried meat
and tomato sauce residue. Mix well and pour into a sauce dish.
7 Serve the meat slices as sandwiches with your favorite bread buns. Alternatively,
simply serve the beef slices on top of a slice of bread. Top the meat with the tomato
sauce that you have collected from the pan.
