Brisket of Beef

 This is not an expensive cut of meat, but served with style it becomes an elegant dish. Use your imagination; you are the one that creates "the dish".
  Flavor is most important! It is best if roasted slowly and tented with foil. This method guarantees tenderness. It will nearly melt in your mouth. Removing the fat after roasting is best, insuring moisture and flavor. This is one cut of beef that needs to be served well done. The broth may be thickened wit flour or cornstarch, adding extra herbs to complement the dish.
  Place bacon in bottom of raster pan or spread pan with vegetable oil. After seasoning the brisket, stuff or roll with fruit, jam, or your favorite bread or potato stuffing. Tie with string. Tent with foil. Bake in preheated oven at 325 F. until meat thermometer registers "well-done", approximately three hours.

Serves 6

2 to 2 pound beef brisket
2 slices of bacon or 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4  teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
dash of favorite herbs if desired
1 to 2 cups water--this keeps the meat moist. It should be about 1/2 inch deep in roaster pan.
