Martha and the Beef Brisket

In honor of heading out to the Martha Stewart Show in 15 days I'm going to be trying to do everything "Martha" style and blogging about it. I'm going to start off with making a Beef Brisket this weekend and following one of Martha's recipes. Here it is.

Coffee-Glazed Oven Brisket

A coffee-based barbecue sauce makes oven-braised brisket even more moist and flavorful. Serve it with your favorite mashed potatoes.

Prep: 10 minutesTotal: 3 hours 15 minutes
Serves 6
3 pounds beef brisket (thin first-cut)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup freshly brewed black coffee
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Season beef brisket with salt and pepper. In a large Dutch oven over high heat, warm oil. Add brisket, fat side down, and cook until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from heat.
In a small bowl, combine coffee, ketchup, chili sauce, honey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and soy sauce. Pour over brisket.
Cover; bake, flipping halfway through, until meat shreds easily with a fork, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove from oven; slice on the bias against the grain. Transfer remaining sauce from Dutch oven to a gravy boat, and serve with brisket.
