Low FODMAP Oven Braised BBQ Brisket

We love brisket! And Oven Braised BBQ Brisket is super easy to make – you start it on the stove and then it finishes cooking in the oven.

It is braised in a rich, flavorful sauce in the oven for a long period of time, but it can be unattended, so don’t be put off by the time cues below.

This Oven Braised BBQ Brisket is a powerhouse of flavor and takes advantage of FODY BBQ Sauce, which we embellish with some additional seasonings.

Beef brisket can be tough cut of meat, which is why we like braising it and take the approach of a low temperature and lengthy cooking time.

It will become so tender that you will be able to shred it with a fork.

We like it best on a soft gluten-free roll (like Udi’s Hamburger Buns) topped with some sort of fresh, crunchy slaw.

We have also served this at an unconventional Passover seder!

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C.
  2. Season both sides of the brisket liberally with black pepper and lightly with salt.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a 5 quart (4.7 L) Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sear both sides of the brisket, until browned, about 5 minutes each side. Remove and set aside.
  4. Add remaining 1 tablespoon garlic-infused oil to pot, turn heat down to low-medium, add leek and scallion greens and sauté, stirring frequently, until softened but not browned, about 2 minutes. Whisk in BBQ sauce, water, cider vinegar, brown sugar, cumin, mustard, paprika, thyme and Worcestershire sauce, turn heat up and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan and combining everything well. Add meat back to pan; liquid should come almost to the top of the brisket. Spoon some of the sauce on top of the brisket. Seal top of pot with aluminum foil, place lid on top of foil and place in oven.
  5. Braise in the oven for 3 hours. Brisket should be fork tender. Remove brisket to a carving platter and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm while it rests for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, taste the sauce, adjust seasoning as desired. Slice the meat against the grain, or shred with two forks, and serve with sauce. (Reheat in sauce, if necessary). Serve with potatoes, grits, or pile up on a roll with slaw as seen in image. Brisket may be made up to 3 days ahead. Simply store in the sauce and reheat on top of stove.



  • We absolutely love Fody BBQ Sauce and this recipe is built around it. If you use a different BBQ Sauce I cannot vouch for the final flavor of the dish.
