  • 1 tbsp salt

  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin


  • 5lb Beef Brisket
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 – 1 cup water
  • 1 onion
  • 2 bay leaves


Step 1: 2-24 hours before intended cooking time, prepare the brisket.

Step 2: Rinse brisket under cold water and pat dry with paper towel. Combine all spices in a small bowl and generously season the brisket on all sides. Cover in Saran Wrap or in a large ziplock bag and place in the fridge for 2-24 hours.

Step 3: Preheat oven to 350

Step 4: Take brisket from fridge and unwrap and place in a baking dish. Bake for 1 hour uncovered

Step 5: Remove brisket from oven and turn the temperature down to 300

Step 6: Add sliced onion, bay leaves and beef broth to the pan and place the brisket over. Ensure the broth fills the pan 1/2 inch, if not add more water. Cover with tin foil and bake for an additional 2.5-3 hours

Step 7: Remove from oven and tent for 15 minutes, slice and serve immediately!

Step 8: Optional Gravy – remove bay leaves from broth mixture and place beef broth, onions and 2 tbsp arrowroot starch in a high powered blender. Place mixture in a saucepan over medium heat to reduce the gravy by simmering it to get to the desired thickness

Step 9: Serve with your favourite side – baked beans, roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon, fries, coleslaw, corn!
