    I am very much a newbie when it comes to crock pot cooking- that said have just put all ingred. in CP for Mirj's brisket combined with onions but the fluid does NOT go 1/2 way up the pot. I added a little extra coke but really wanted to stick to recipe. Is this ok or schould I add H2O or something else???

    I don't have a crockpot so no help from me, but if you post the recipe number, others will be able to check the recipe out and help you maybe. icon_biggrin.gif

    Thanks Jan - the recipe's not really the problem - I think the croc is suppossed to be at least half full. I did post to crock a few min. ago - am just trying to 10 things at once (work - work which I do from my home office) & cook.

    Many thanks,

    I would stick to the recipe..the brisket will release also juices whilst cooking. Have cooked many dishes without that my pot was half full and they turned out fine.

    If you have them on hand, you might cover the brisket with some large cabbage or lettuce leaves to avoid drying out. Even covering the top of the meat with the foil would trap in moisture. I tend to worry about the meat getting too dry when I use my crock and have found that the cabbage leaves really help to keep the cut of meat tender.

    Just as a practice, crock pot cooking takes very little liquid. The other day, I did a whole chicken in the crock....I put a rub on the chicken and only one sliced onion on the bottom and no liquid at all. When I got home at 3pm, the crock pot was nearly 3/4 to the top with liquid...just from the chicken itself! Turned out great! Pam
