Brisket is a cut of beef that must be marinated to become tender and juicy. The marinade must be acid based using lemon, tomato or vinegar so that the collagen between the meat fibers breaks down allowing the meat to tenderize while cooking. Once the brisket has been marinated, cooking the brisket in your NuWave oven is a quick and simple task. Since the NuWave functions as both a broiler and a convection oven, the meat will need to be turned half way through the cooking process.
Things You'll Need
- NuWave oven
- 3 to 4 pound. brisket
- Seasonings (optional)
- Long kitchen fork
Assemble the NuWave oven on your counter top or table, making sure that the base fits completely in the space you're using. Slide the cooking liner into the base and then add the cooking rack.
Place the marinated brisket on the rack, making sure that the brisket is centered and will not hang over the sides where it may touch the dome when it is in place.
Add any further seasonings to the top side of the brisket, if desired.
Slide the NuWave's dome onto the base, making sure that it sits evenly. Attach the power head to the dome and twist counterclockwise to lock it in place. Plug the NuWave oven into an electrical outlet.
Set the cooking time to one hour and the power level to 10. Turn the oven on and let the brisket cook until the timer expires.
Remove the dome from the base. Using a long kitchen fork, turn the brisket over and add more seasonings, if desired.
Place the dome back on the base and reset the time for another 40 minutes and a power level of 10.
Remove the meat from the oven and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before carving and serving.
Tips & Warnings
- If you want to add barbecue sauce to the brisket as it cooks, lift the dome and begin brushing with the sauce after the first 20 minutes of cooking time. Repeat every 20 minutes.
- The brisket can be braised in the oven by placing it in a shallow pan that will fit the oven space. Add the braising liquid--water, broth, thin sauce--and cook for the same amount of time.
