This recipe, originally created by one of Chris Prosperi’s best friends, has two unexpected ingredients: a can of Coke and a package of Lipton Beef Onion Soup Mix. If you’re skeptical, just keep in mind that Lee White (that best friend) served it to the great Jacques Pepin. Jacques’s only suggestion was to reduce the braising liquid down to make it more concentrated. Chris did that here and added a little corn starch to make a thickened sauce to pour over the brisket when served. Faith loves it too!
