Braised Brisket With Onions & Garlic

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Top Review by Jezski

5 stars is not nearly enough! This is a super recipe. I made it just as written, darkening the gravy a little bit. Very moist and tender. And the next day, cold sandwiches are also 5 star. Incidently, if your guests are a little late, the finished meat will hold at 170 for an hour with little loss in texture or flavor. Thanks Old Magic for posting. Janet Edited: I forgot to add the 5 stars. Sorry, because this recipe certainly deserves them.
