Traditional Jewish Brisket Recipe [moved from General Chowhounding board]

Yup, my 72 year old Yiddishe Momma has never cooked a brisket....Although I won't be eating it, I'm the know-it-all who's going to tell her how to do it (g)...I've searched thru past posts, and found BBQ brisket recipes, and a few that call for the cans of onion soup, ketchup, and other things that should not be added to brisket. Searching Epicurious, and some Jewish food sources online, yielded a few recipes *I* thought were right, using pounds of onions, braising, and lots of slow cooking, but the thing is, Mom is a weenie. She wants one that her friends have tried, and that means ketchup, onion soups, cranberry sauce, etc.

Mom and Dad, however, revere the opinions, and recipes of the knowledgeable hounds, whose recs have led them to great BBQ, great recs, and great eating...So if one of *you* posts *your* brisket recipe, Mom will consider it vetted by a close friend who can really cook.

Please, help my father's old age hold a wonderful brisket this New Year...Help my mother be the envy of her Mah Jong group, when they smell those delicious smells, and beg for leftovers...
