Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.

Place brisket into a heavy roasting pan. Pour ketchup and onion soup mix over brisket. Mix the ketchup and onion soup mix together. Pour ginger ale over brisket. Gently stir the ketchup, ginger ale, and onion soup mix together (does not have to be well combined).

Tightly cover the roasting pan with heavy duty aluminum foil. Bake for about 3-4 hours, or until meat is tender. Remove brisket and cover with foil to keep warm.

Place roasting pan directly on stovetop OR transfer sauce to a heavy saucepan. Simmer sauce over medium heat for 20-30 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.

Personal Notes:
When I first got this recipe from my aunt, I had my doubts...ketchup and ginger ale on brisket?!? BUT I promise, your guests will have no idea that the sauce was made from ginger ale, ketchup, and onion soup mix!

If you don't see any cuts of brisket in the meat case, there's a good chance that the butcher has it on hand.
