“This is a Baton Rouge, Louisiana seasoning recipe for beef brisket, and makes an awesome brisket that tastes a lot like home-corned beef without the "pinkening" agents (not a word, I know ...), just all the flavor ... and then some! This also seasons and tenderizes other cuts of beef nicely; try it with your next roast! Plus, a delicious pan gravy can be made with the drippings. (Cook time and yield is an estimate depending on the size and cut of beef prepared ... this is enough for about 3 pounds.)”
