Atlanta Brisket is a braised, southern dish featuring boxed onion soup mix, ketchup, and Atlanta’s own Coca-Cola. We replaced artificial-tasting soup mix with our own blend of sautéed onions, onion and garlic powders, brown sugar, and dried thyme. To ensure that the brisket was seasoned throughout, we pierced it with a fork and salted it overnight before searing it—weighted down with a heavy pot for maximum browning. Finally, we braised the brisket in a mixture of cola and ketchup, which not only flavored the meat but also provided a sweet, tangy sauce to serve with it.
