Sweet and tangy, here's my Bubbe's Famous Jewish Brisket.

3 - 4 pounds beef brisket
1 1/2 cups water
2 cups ketchup
1 cup white vinegar
2 white onions
2 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
  1. Chop onions into large pieces.
  2. Mince garlic cloves.
  3. Heat a large skillet or pan over medium-high heat. Cook brisket until all sides are browned.
  4. Add in water, white vinegar, ketchup, onions, garlic, sugar and salt.
  5. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over medium-low heat, turning brisket every 30 minutes.
  6. Cook brisket until the sauce has congealed or about 2 1/2 – 3 hours.
  7. Once brisket cools, remove the fat and slice against the grain and refrigerate overnight.
