Step 1

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Prepare the rub. In a small bowl, place the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.

Step 2

Prepare the brisket. Apply the rub generously on each side of the brisket. 

Step 3

Apply the barbecue sauce to the top of the brisket.

Step 4

Roast the brisket on a sheet pan in the oven for 3-4 hours, until cooked through and tender. Let the brisket rest for 10 minutes. 

Step 5

Reserve the sauce on the bottom of the pan. Chop the brisket into small pieces. Add more barbecue sauce to the chopped brisket, if desired.

Step 6

Assemble the tacos. Heat the tortillas on the stove for 1 minute on each side.

Step 7

Lay the tortilla on a flat surface and add the brisket, onion, cilantro, jalapeño and cheese. (See notes 2.)

Step 8

Pour the reserved sauce from the pan before on top of the taco and enjoy!


Notes:

  1. Corn tortillas can also be used for a gluten-free experience.
  2. You can change the taste of these tacos by just adding different toppings. An example would be diced tomatoes, avocadoes and lettuce.
