Rubbing the beef with flavourful spices before cooking it to tenderness makes this roast a winner. For an informal family event, slice thinly and serve on kaiser rolls. If you can't find strained tomatoes, just process 1 can (28 oz/796 mL) whole tomatoes in the blender until smooth and strain out seeds.

  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder (or chili powder plus 1/4 tsp/1 mL cayenne)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 lbs boneless beef brisket pot roasts
Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 onion coarsely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 bottle (660 ml) tomato
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bottle (341 ml) beer

Method

In large bowl, combine paprika, salt, pepper, sugar, chili powder and garlic powder; stir in oil to make paste.

Add beef brisket, turning and rubbing in paste well. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place brisket, fat side up, in greased roasting pan; roast in 400°F (200°C) oven for 30 minutes.

Barbecue Sauce: In blender, mince chopped onion with garlic. Add strained tomatoes, brown sugar, cider vinegar and Worcestershire sauce; whirl until no large chunks remain. Stir in beer. Pour over brisket.

Cover and braise in 325°F (160°C) oven for 2 hours, basting occasionally. Uncover and braise until meat is tender, about 1 hour.

Transfer meat to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain. Serve with sauce.
