The easiest most incredibly delicious brisket recipe. This was given to me at Aimee's, my daughter's, insistence. Update: December 10/07 - it turns out great when you roast it in a bag - also makes clean up a breeze!

I really enjoyed this brisket (my first ever attempt). My husband really liked it too, even if he kept asking for it to be corned with cabbage instead! Really super, duper easy to make. I left out the potatoes as I was serving it with latkes and a prepared (frozen pre-made dough)honey wheat loaf of bread. Very delicious dinner.
