Moms, this is a great meal for after the game!
The recipe:

1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp brown sugar

I have seen brisket cooked with that method on Food Network, and now we will have to try it! It sounds delicious. And I love the little pumpkins!

Cara said...

That looks divine! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like them!


Rhondi said...

Hi Lisa
I am so glad you posted about football. I was just thinking about fall last night after I'd finished my post and it hit me that for lots of people fall is synonymous with football. Thanks for joining the party.
hugs, Rhondi

I remember those days well! I had nearly forgotten...and the memories came flooding back. Football games, four cheerleaders and building that blasted homecoming float in our boatyard! It was all so good...and all so hard! :) I remember it well! :) Thanks for the memories!

Stacey said...

I will absolutely be making this recipe! My mom has always been free to add strong black coffee to foods that simmer. It's delicious. :)

red.neck chic said...

I'm not kidding - do you have an extra chair at your table? I'll even do the dishes...

Happy Tuesday! I have to go find some food now...

Robin said...

Holy cow Lisa! That looks JUST AMAZING! Perfect timing for this recipe!

Hello Lisa...

Mmmm...yummy! My friend, I haven't had good brisket since I've moved from Texas! Hehe! That's something they just don't make much here in Colorado! Now you've gone and done it!!! I must have some!!! Hehe! Thanks for sharing your recipe and's a great meal to serve a large group! Football and Fall just go together!

Warmest wishes and Happy Fall!

Wow-- that looks great. My family loves brisket, and I always make it the same way; i think it's time for a change!

Elyse said...


i love brisket and this sounds quite delish.

thanks for sharing.

happy autumn!


Cole said...

I love brisket! As a former "band geek" thanks for mentioning the marching band, and thanks for sharing with TATT. :-)

Cathy said...

I gave this recipe to my husband...he was thrilled!!! He is the brisket maker in our house. I am sure it will be amazing.

I am all out of football players this boy decided to focus on his golf!!! I have mixed feelings but he was so sure he wanted to stop playing. He is an excellent golfer so it was hard to argue with him.

I can't wait to try the brisket!!!


Michelle said...

Oh my gosh, this looks delicious! I've never seen Coke added. I'll have to tell my girlfriend this because she loves making brisket!!


Lots of love and hugs...trying to be better about visiting!! Life has been so hectic lately. :)

Ldy ~~ Dy said...

Ahh..memories...although my youngest daughter has been out of H.S. for a while, we used to enjoy the fall because of football too. She was part of the sports medicine team. Lots of memories there! Yum! That brisket recipe sound delish! I must try it! Thanks for sharing! Hugs!!

Kammy said...

Looks yummy ! Have you ever used a slow cooker instead of the oven ? Fall does mean football !

Liz said...

COME ON NOW! I FINALLY lost 10 lbs.

This looks soooo yummy! I love brisket anyway!

I'd probably eat the whole thing! oink!


Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Lisa~ The beef brisket looks delish!
I'd like a hot beef sandwich on a big hoagie roll smothered in caramelized onions for lunch too.
Good food is the only way I can sit with hubs and watch football....

Sweet wishes,

Wow Lisa that looks wonderful. My guess is some clever wife came up with that one to keep her hubby from falling asleep on the couch after the meal. lol

Melissa Miller said...
