My grandmother used to make this every year for get-togethers. Who would've known that it was this easy?
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 (3 pound) beef brisket
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle ginger ale
- 3 carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces (optional)
- 1 small onion, sliced (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place the brisket in a roasting pan fat side up. In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, soup mix and ginger ale; pour over the brisket. Arrange carrots and onion around the edge of the roast if using. Cover the roast with a lid or aluminum foil.
Bake for 2 hours in the preheated oven. Remove the cover, and cook for 1 more hour. Let stand for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
