Coffee-Glazed Oven Brisket

Source: Everyday Food, October 2003


  • 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


  1. 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.

  2. In a small bowl, combine coffee, ketchup, chili sauce, honey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and soy sauce. Pour over brisket.

  3. 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.
