This tender Italian seasoned brisket is very versatile and will feed a hungry crowd.  It's a great make ahead dish and can be sliced thin for hearty sandwiches on crusty bread or served as an elegant dinner alongside creamy mashed potatoes and asparagus spears. 


  • 1 Beef Brisket about 4 pounds
  • 2 garlic cloves slivered
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed crushed
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 green bell pepper cut in thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoons hot pepper sauce


  1. Trim excess fat from the brisket and discard.
  2. Place brisket, fat side up, in a 9 by 13 inch roasting pan.
  3. Sprinkle garlic and fennel seeds over the surface. Place onion on top.
  4. Bake uncovered in a 325 degree F oven for 1 hour.
  5. Remove from oven and cover with aluminum foil and seal tightly. Continue cooking for 2 hours or until tender. Remove brisket and allow to cool completely. This will allow for easy slicing.
