  • I cook a brisket wtih coffee. And I cook it for alittle over 2 hours ( depends on the pan) at 350. I would say letting it stand for 15 to 20 mins would be good . You just have to give it a try and go from there. good luck and let us know how it turns out.

  • For that large of a piece of meat, you need to cook it for at least 4 1/2 hours. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In large, heavy roasting pan, add 2 envys onion soup mix (1 box), 1 tsp pepper, 1 tbs garlic powder and 1 1/2 tsp ground thyme and 4 c. HOT water. Mix well to dissolve soup mix. Place meat in pan, fat side up, and sprinkle lightly with pepper, garlic powder & thyme. Cover tightly with heavy duty foil. Roast for 4 hours, basting with juices every hour. Remove cover from meat and test for tenderness (a long-tined fork should go in and out easily. If necessary, cover & continue cooking, checking every 30 minutes. Once tender, remove cover & raise heat to 375 degrees. Allow to roast 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool in the pan for 30 minutes, the let rest for 15 more minutes before slicing.

  • To make gravy, melt 2 tbs margarine in a sauce pan. Add 2 tbs flour and cook for 2 minutes. Add 2 c. strained liquid from roasting pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low & simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened. Adjust seasonings. If too thick, add more strained meat juice til desired consistency.

    WE DO NOT DO THIS IN OUR HOUSE. We just juse the pan juices
