You can cook this brisket in a slow cooker or in a Dutch oven like I do. The secret is time: Low and slow is the key.


For the Brisket:

For the Ranch Dressing:


  1. Position a rack in the lowest part of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325˚ F. Make the brisket: Mix together the onion powder, paprika, allspice, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub the spice mix all over the brisket.
  2. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and then the brisket. Sear on all sides until a deep golden brown, about 7 minutes. Nestle the bay leaves, onions and carrots around the brisket. Pour in the tomatoes and cola and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until the meat is very tender, about 3 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, make the ranch dressing: Mix together the yogurt, mayonnaise and pickled jalapeño juice, if using, in a small bowl. Add the parsley, dill, chives and onion powder and mix until combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Uncover the pot; let the meat and vegetables rest in the juices for about 30 minutes. Remove the brisket and slice against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Serve the brisket on pretzel buns with the ranch dressing and pickled jalapeños.
