Brisket is synonymous with Rosh Hashanah. Here’s a new take on an old standby!

  • 1 6 lb. Brisket
  • 1 can sour cherries drained
  • 1 pkg dried onion soup mix
  • 1 cup bbq sauce
  • 3/4 cup Coca Cola

In a saucepan place cherry juice bbq sauce and Coca-Cola. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes
Place brisket in the roaster. Sprinkle onion soup mix over meat.
Pour sauce over brisket and sprinkle with cherries. Seal pan tightly with foil and bake at 350 for 4 hours. Cool and then slice meat and top with gravy from the roaster.
