Beef is a tough cut of meat, so it is often prepared slowly to make it slower and more flavorful. Beef breast is the most common type of meat, but if you want something that tastes even more delicate and tender, try veal breast. There is also salty brisket that comes packaged with a special seasoning in which it must be prepared. To learn more about how to prepare each type of breast in the oven, read on.

Steps

Method 1 of 3: Method One: Beef Breast

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 1

Step 1. Preheat oven to 150°C

Prepare a baking sheet, lining it with a large sheet of aluminum foil.

The sheet should be at least three times the size of the bottom of your baking sheet. You will need enough aluminum foil to completely and securely wrap your entire chest. If necessary, you can test the amount by wrapping around your chest before using it on the baking sheet

Step 2. Mix the sauce ingredients

In a small saucepan, combine the ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, ginger, garlic, oil and water until well combined.

If you prefer, you can use your favorite ready-made barbecue sauce instead of this sauce recipe. Use about 3/4 cup (185 ml) of ready-made sauce and mix with 1 cup (250 ml) of water. It is not necessary to boil if using the ready-made sauce

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 3

Step 3. Boil the sauce for 5 minutes

Heat the sauce over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil. Let it cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, for the flavors to harmonize.

Pre-heating the barbecue sauce separately allows the sauce's flavors to blend better before adding it to the breast meat. If you don't precook the sauce, you may end up with an unevenly flavored breast with some stronger flavors on one side of the meat than on the other

Step 4. Transfer the brisket and sauce to the baking sheet

Place the breast meat on the aluminum foil and spread the sauce over the top, covering as much of the meat as possible. Wrap the sheet around your chest when finished.

  • By enveloping the breast, you seal the liquid completely and keep that liquid in full contact with the flesh. This leads to a smoother, faster, and tastier cooking process.
  • Make sure the foil is wrapped tightly around the chest so that no liquid can leak through the corners of the foil package.

Step 5. Bake until tender

The breast meat should be roasted for about 1 hour for every 450 g of meat. In this case, the breast should cook for 3 to 4 hours.

  • Do not open the breast wrap during the cooking process unless you are checking for doneness. Removing the meat can cause some liquid to be lost, which can disrupt cooking time and lead to a breast that is drier than ideal.
  • You should also watch your chest to make sure liquid is not leaking out of the corners of the aluminum foil. If liquid is running, carefully fold the sheet corners down, using oven mitts to prevent further loss of liquid.
  • Check the internal temperature of the breast with a meat thermometer. The temperature should be between 88°C to 93°C, when it will be safe and soft enough to eat, as well as being easily separated.

Step 6. Let it rest before serving

Remove the breast meat from the oven and let it sit for 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • Cut the brisket along the fiber to get softer slices of meat.
  • You can also serve the breast with the juice it was cooked in for a more intense flavor. Scoop the fat off the surface of the cooking liquid with a spoon before spreading the liquid over the slices of meat.

Method 2 of 3: Method Two: Calf Breast

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 7

Step 1. Preheat oven to 180°C

Meanwhile, season the veal breast with salt and pepper on all sides.

Step 2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan

Add the oil to a large casserole dish and heat it over medium-high heat for a few minutes, making it more liquid and easier to spread across the bottom of the casserole.

Veal breast is usually browned, while breast meat is often prepared without browning. The flavor of veal is more intensely accentuated when browning than the flavor of breast meat, at least with respect to the breast prepared in the oven

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 9

Step 3. Seal the chest on all sides

Add the veal breast to the hot oil and seal each side, turning with tongs as needed, until all sides are browned. This should take about 3-5 minutes on each side.

When finished, remove the chest from the casserole and keep it warm

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 10

Step 4. Quickly saute the onions, carrots and garlic

Add these ingredients to the remaining oil in the casserole and sauté, stirring constantly, until the onion begins to wilt and brown and is translucent. This should take about 4 minutes.

If there is little or no oil in the casserole when you add the vegetables, add another tablespoon of oil so these ingredients can be sautéed in fat

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 11

Step 5. Add spices and white wine

Add bay leaf, thyme, rosemary, parsley and white wine to the casserole. Cook over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.

  • Scrape the bottom of the casserole, scraping away any stuck pieces of veal or vegetables during the process. These little pieces are very tasty, so you don't want to waste them.
  • If you want to remove the herbs before serving the veal breast, place them in a small sachet, made of gauze. This is not strictly necessary as the bay leaf is the only one that really needs to be removed and it is usually quite easy to spot where it is and remove it.

Step 6. Return the breast to the casserole with the tomatoes

Return the veal breast to the casserole and add the crushed tomatoes. Cover the pan.

Use the casserole lid. If it doesn't have a lid, close it securely with aluminum foil

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 13

Step 7. Bake in the oven until tender

This should take about 2 and 1/2 to 3 hours. Keep the casserole covered during the cooking process, just remove the lid to check the doneness.

Check the internal temperature of the breast with a meat thermometer. The temperature should be between 88° to 93° C, when it will be safe and soft enough to eat, as well as being easily separated

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 14

Step 8. Let it rest before serving

Remove the veal breast from the oven and let it sit for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • Cut the brisket along the fiber to get softer slices of meat.
  • You can also serve the breast with the juice it was cooked in for a more intense flavor. Scoop the fat off the surface of the cooking liquid with a spoon before spreading the liquid over the slices of meat.

Method 3 of 3: Method Three: Seasoned Chest

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 15

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 90°C

Prepare a baking sheet, lining it with a large sheet of aluminum foil.

The sheet should be at least three times the size of the bottom of your baking sheet. You will need enough aluminum foil to completely and securely wrap your entire chest. If necessary, you can test the amount by wrapping around your chest before using it on the baking sheet

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 16

Step 2. Place the breast on your baking sheet

Place the breast meat directly in the center of the aluminum foil of your roasting pan.

Don't open the seasoning package yet. This pack will be used later in the process

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 17

Step 3. Add water to baking sheet

Pour enough water into the pan to reach the top edge of the chest.

You just need plenty of water to help roast the meat. She doesn't need to cover her chest completely

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 18

Step 4. Sprinkle the seasoning packet over the meat

Distribute the seasoning packet over the upper surface of the chest in the surrounding water.

By sprinkling the seasoning packet in the water and onto the breast itself, you will distribute the flavor more evenly across the entire cut of meat. Otherwise, most of the flavor would be concentrated only in the upper part of the breast

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 19

Step 5. Wrap the chest

Wrap the aluminum foil tightly around the breast, creating a tightly closed package so that no liquid can escape as canned breast meat cooks do.

By enveloping the breast, you seal the liquid completely and keep that liquid in full contact with the flesh. This leads to a smoother, faster, and tastier cooking process

Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 20

Step 6. Cook until tender

This can take 3 to 6 hours. After 3 hours, check the chest every 30 to 40 minutes to check its internal temperature and tenderness.

  • Do not open the breast pack during the cooking process unless you are checking for doneness. Removing the meat can cause some liquid to be lost, which can disrupt cooking time and lead to a breast that is drier than ideal.
  • You should also watch your chest to make sure liquid is not leaking out of the corners of the aluminum foil. If the liquid is running, carefully fold the corners of the sheet down, using oven mitts to avoid losing more liquid.
  • Check the internal temperature of the breast with a meat thermometer. The temperature should be between 88° to 93° C, when it will be safe and soft enough to eat, as well as being easily separated.
Cook a Brisket in the Oven Step 21

Step 7. Let it rest before serving

Remove the corned beef brisket from the oven and let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • Cut the brisket along the fiber to get softer slices of meat.
  • You can also serve the breast with the juice it was cooked in for a more intense flavor. Scoop the fat off the surface of the cooking liquid with a spoon before spreading the liquid over the slices of meat.
