1 g  cooking spray
3 each  medium onions
4 1/2 lb  whole lean beef brisket
4 each  medium garlic cloves
1 pinch  salt and pepper
1 tsp  dried basil
1 tbsp  paprika
0 1/4 cup  low sugar apricot jam
2 tbsp  fresh lemon juice
1 cup  Soda, cola, diet
  1. Spray a large roasting pan with nonstick spray. Place onions in pan; place brisket on top of onions. Rub meat on all sides with garlic, seasonings, jam, and lemon juice. Pour cola over and around brisket. Marinate for an hour at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°F. Cook covered. Allow 45 minutes per pound as the cooking time, until meat is fork tender. Uncover meat for the last hour and baste it occasionally. Remove from oven and cool completely. Refrigerate overnight, if possible. Discard hardened fat which congeals on the surface. Slice brisket thinly across the grain, trimming away any fat. Reheat slices in the defatted pan juices. Reheats and/or freezes well.
