Barbecue Southwest Brisket

Author: Canadian Living

A chipotle pepper and a touch of cumin add spice and distinct flavour to this brisket. Chipotles in adobo sauce are a trendy kitchen staple, which you'll find with the canned chiles at your grocery store. However, one chopped jalapeño pepper and 1 tbsp (15 mL) ketchup make a delicious substitute. Vary the root vegetables depending on your family's preferences.

  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Method

Spread onions and garlic in oval or 14- x 10- x 3-inch (35 x 25 x 8 cm) roasting pan.

In small bowl, mix together paprika, salt, dry mustard, pepper and cumin; rub all over beef brisket. Place, fat side up, on onion mixture.

In separate bowl, mix together 1 cup (250 mL) water, barbecue sauce, honey, chipotle pepper and adobo sauce; pour over brisket. Cover and refrigerate, turning once, for 4 hours or up to 12 hours.

Turn brisket fat side up. Cover and braise in 350°F (180°C) oven, basting every hour, for 3 hours.

Add carrots and potatoes; braise, covered, until brisket and vegetables are fork-tender, about 1 hour. To serve, slice against the grain.
