Atlanta Brisket is a braised, southern dish featuring boxed onion soup mix, ketchup, and Atlanta’s own Coca-Cola. In this recipe I replaced the artificial-tasting soup mix with sautéed onions and garlic powder, brown sugar, and dried thyme. To ensure that the brisket was seasoned throughout, pierced it with a fork and salted it overnight before searing it—weighted down with a heavy pot for maximum browning. Finally, braising 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. I like serving this with lightly butter egg noodles and a crisp salad.
