Beef Brisket with Celery and Onion

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is my favorite brisket recipe. The addition of lots of celery and onions along with the juice makes wonderful sandwiches. Recipe is for a crockpot.

Top Review by Parsley

Very tender and delicious sandwich meat. I hopped my celery and onions very very fine (included those celery leaves, too). I skipped the water and added extra tomato sauce. Added lots of fresh minced garlic, too. I was gone for much of the day and my house smelled fantastic when I returned. The meat shredded practically effortlessly with forks. I'll make this again; thanx for sharing.
