Helene's Beef Brisket
Maria's friend Helene gave us this recipe. It makes a delicious and tender main course.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place onions in roasting pan as a floor, and put meat on top of onions. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over meat. Pierce meat with fork. Cover with foil; pierce foil in several places with sharp knife or fork to vent. Bake 3½ to 4 hours or until tender. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes before slicing the meat to serve. Serve with meat drippings.
We have a large enameled roasting pan, and that works well instead of foil.
