This Christmas we are trying something other than our standard ham. We plan on making a beef brisket. It's the first time we will branch out and having something other than our usual. And, while some people might miss the ham, I know that I am very excited for the change. Plus, once they try it, I have a feeling we might have a new holiday favorite on our hands.

Here's the recipe that we will be using:

1 Reynolds Oven Bag, Large Size

3 Tablespoons Flour

½ cup water

2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 pound carrots, sliced

2 medium onions, sliced

1 package mixed dried fruit, cut into 1 inch pieces

3-pound boneless beef brisket

PREHEAT oven to 325°F.

SHAKE flour in Reynolds Oven Bag; place in 13x9x2-inch or larger baking pan at least 2 inches deep.

ADD water, brown sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper to oven bag. Squeeze bag to blend in flour. Arrange carrots, onions, and dried fruit in an even layer in bag. Place brisket on top of vegetables and fruit.

CLOSE oven bag with nylon tie; cut six 1/2-inch slits in top. Tuck ends of bag in pan.

BAKE 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until brisket is tender. Let stand in oven bag 5 minutes. Remove brisket; thinly slice diagonally across the grain. Skim fat from sauce; spoon sauce over brisket. Serve with vegetables and fruit.

Moms, what is your favorite holiday meal to cook for your family?

I love brisket because you can leave it to cook and it lasts our large family several days!  I will have to try this one!  Thanks!!

We usually have turkey or ham.

That looks really yummy - I'll have to try it sometime.

I am rather partial to a turkey for Christmas, though.

That looks good.  I've never had brisket.
