Ingredients

  • 6

    pound boneless flat cut beef brisket

  • 2

    tablespoons sea salt

  • 2

    tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon chili powder

  • 1

    tablespoon paprika

  • 1

    tablespoon dried mustard

  • 1

    tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1

    tablespoon onion powder

  • 2

    teaspoons dried thyme

  • ¼

    cup liquid smoke, any variety

  • Ranchero Sauce:

  • For the Ranchero Sauce: •1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2

    shallots, peeled and chopped

  • 2

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce

  • 12

    ounces roasted piquillo peppers (or roasted red peppers)

  • 4.5 ounce can green chiles

  • 1

    cup chicken stock

  • 1

    tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1

    tablespoon brown sugar

  • ¼ - ½

    teaspoon liquid smoke

  • ¼

    cup heavy cream

Directions

1.Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Pour 3 cups water into the bottom of a large roasting pan with a rack, and add the liquid smoke. 2.In a small bowl, mix the salt, brown sugar, and all remaining spices until well combined. Rub the spice blend over the entire surface of the brisket and lay the brisket on the wire roasting rack. Insert an oven-safe meat thermometer into the thickest part of the brisket and cover the roasting pan tightly with foil. *If you have an oven with a bulit-in meat thermometer, run the wire out the side of the pan. If you are using a standard meat thermometer, insert it into the brisket, through the foil, so you can see the reading. 3.Slow Roast in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F. Then remove the foil and continue roasting until the internal temperature reaches 168 degrees F. Depending on your oven, and where you inserted the meat thermometer, this process may take 5-6 hours. 4.Take the brisket out of the oven and allow it to rest for 20 minutes before serving. Cover it loosely with foil to help retain the heat. Cut the brisket across the grain into thin slices, and serve warm. NOTE: Texas Style Oven Brisket is fabulous on its own, but also pairs well with this Creamy Ranchero Sauce! Directions for Ranchero Sauce: For the Ranchero Sauce: Place a skillet over medium heat and add the oil and shallots. Saute the shallots for 2 minutes. Then add the garlic and saute another 1-2 minutes. Add all remaining ingredients, except for the heavy cream. Simmer the ranchero sauce for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Using an immersion blender, puree the ranchero sauce until smooth. Then stir in the heavy cream. Salt to taste.
