Cousin Joan's Beef Brisket in Oven Bag

Beef brisket roasted in oven bag.

Several years ago when visiting my cousin Joan in Maryland, she served a wonderful beef brisket that she had cooked in an oven bag.  Here's her recipe:

Beef Brisket (recipe from Joan)
1  3 to 4 lb. brisket without bone
2 Tbs flour
3 medium carrots chopped
3 medium onions chopped
1 15 oz can tomatoes (cut up)
½ cup port wine or water
1 envelope onion soup mix (or part of one)
1 tsp dried basil
2 bay leaves
(I added a few mushrooms that I had on hand.)

Trim fat from brisket and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place flour in large oven cooking bag and shake.  Add brisket, place in roasting pan.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour over brisket.  Cut slits in top of bag, close bag and seal.
325 degree oven preheated for 2 ½ to 3 hours.

When cleaning out a drawer in our kitchen, I ran across the box of oven bags and decided to make this. 
Add flour to oven bag.

Salt and pepper brisket and put in oven bag. 

Cut up vegetables to add to oven bag.

Add tomatoes and cut up vegetables and roast.

Ready to serve.

Ready to enjoy. 

 I served this with mashed potatoes and the gravy from the vegetables in the oven bag.  This is delicious on a cold, cold day or any day for that matter.  It is so easy too.
