Low Calorie Tips for Making Beef Brisket Holiday Recipes Healthy:

  • Olive Oil Spray... Here’s the great thing about a good beef brisket: It has a bit of fat on it! So you don’t have to add as much (or really any) oil in a brisket recipe. We’re not apposed to healthy fat’s like Olive Oil, but we do want to cut calories. So instead, use an olive oil spray and get a list mist instead of 1/2 cup of oil. You won’t be able to tell the difference!
  • Zero Calorie (All Natural) Brown Sugar… This is a shout out to our diabetic readers as much as the low calorie researcher. This all natural “brown sugar” tastes exactly the same, is made from sugar cane, and has zero calories and no sugar! It will add the mild sweetness you’re looking for, without all the sugar, carbs and calories.

How to Cook a Beef Brisket in Oven

Here are a few tips for beef brisket. If you have more, we would love to hear and share them (if that’s ok with you)! Please comment below.

Beef Brisket Oven Tips and Tricks:

  • Beef Brisket Internal Temp: The internal temp of a beef brisket should be 200° Fahrenheit or 200 degrees Celsius.
  • What’s Better? Wet or Dry Marinade for a Beef Brisket: They are both GREAT! But if you are looking to roast in an oven, I’d recommend a wet marinade to help tenderize and keep moist. The beef brisket dry rubs are great for barbecuing where the fat will slowly melt over the meat, keeping it tender without added moisture.
  • Beef Brisket Cook Time: The general rule of thumb is to plan on between 45 to 60 minutes per pound. For example, a 8 pound brisket cooked at 300 degrees (Fahrenheit) will take about 5 hours.

How to Make Beef Brisket in the Oven:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Use paper towels to pat the brisket dry. Then rub both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a dutch oven over a medium heat, and lightly spray with olive oil.
  4. Add the brisket to the dutch oven and brown the brisket on each side for 5 minutes.
  5. While the brisket is browning, add the crushed tomatoes, garlic, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and beef broth to a blender. Blend until smooth, and set aside.
  6. Remove the brisket from the dutch oven (move to a cutting board or plate) and add the onions, carrots and celery.
  7. Cook the veggies for 5-6 minutes, then add in 1/2 of the tomato mixture from the blender. Scrape the bottom of the pan loosening any browned bits.
  8. Add the brisket back to the dutch oven, and pour the remaining tomato broth mixture over it.
  9. Cover the dutch oven, and place the brisket in the oven.
  10. Roast the brisket for 5 hours.
  11. Remove the brisket from the dutch oven and let it rest on the cutting board fat-side up for 30 minutes.
  12. Skim the fat off the sauce, and keep the sauce and veggies hot by adding it back to the oven, or by simmering over low heat on the stove top.
  13. Cut the fat cap off the brisket, and discard. And slice the brisket against the grain.
  14. Serve hot topped with sauce and veggies.
