  2. Pour marinade over brisket, seal or cover and place in refrigerator for a minimum of 3-4 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 325°F. Place brisket in a dish (dutch oven or small casserole pan is ideal), top with sliced onions and pour the marinade over top. Cover with lid or foil and place in oven.

  5. Allow brisket to rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing. Slice across the grain of the meat. Add additional flavor with with sauce, salt and pepper or other ingredients as desired and enjoy!
