    texaslady1's Note:

    My dad gave me the basics for this recipe. You can use whatever kind of beer you like. Just don't leave it out. The beer is what tenderizes the meat.

      Couldn't be easier and so delicious!!! I wanted a brisket recipe that called for onions and didn't have liquid smoke in it. Just wasn't in the mood for that smoky flavor. This was perfect! Especially with the beer. Anything with beer in it is great with my dh. It is actually not a distinguishable taste in the end, but adds a lot of moisture for lots of juice in the end. BTW - It may look like too much liquid in the beginning, but it cooks way down, so don't skimp on it. I will be using this recipe for many briskets to come. Post more recipes texaslady! Pam
