  • Preheat oven to 250⁰ F. Place brisket in a large ovenproof baking dish.
  • Mix onion soup mix, cranberries and chili sauce in a bowl. Spoon over the top of the brisket. Pour ginger ale around the edges of the brisket.
  • Cover with foil and bake 4 hours.
  • Remove from oven, let rest 20 minutes. Remove brisket from baking dish and place on cutting board. Slice brisket against the grain and place in serving dish. Top with sauce and serve.


Chef’s tip: When you have leftover sliced brisket, place it in a clean baking dish, top with sauce and refrigerate at least overnight and up to three days. Preheat oven to 350⁰ F and reheat brisket for 1 hour. This saves time and the leftover brisket is better after resting in the sauce.
