    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In the bottom of a Dutch Oven, slice the onions and place brisket on top of them.
    2. 2
      Mix the ketchup, onion soup mix, ginger ale and wine together and pour them over the meat. Note:If you want more gravy, you can add more ginger ale or water.
    3. 3
      Cook for 2-3 hours until fork tender either in top of the stove or in a 350 degree F. oven. If you place meat in the oven, make sure your Dutch oven doesn't have a plastic knob on the lid (like mine does).
    4. 4
      Cool and slice against the grain.

      I have been using this recipe (actually, a similar one) for over 20 years. Sometimes i leave out the wine an add more ginger ale as someone else suggests. However, I add potato wedges in the crock pot from the beginning and they are delicious. Sometimes I add string beans about an hour before the brisket is done. One other note, I usually wind up doubling the "sauce" to make sure it covers the brisket and potatos in my crock pot.

      I have been making this recipe for a number of years and it is always delicious. We now live in bush Alaska where there is never brisket available so I have used this recipe with many other types or beef roasts with excellent results. I never have wine on hand so I use more ginger ale. Also, I use about two good sized onions instead of 4 and I add carrots and fresh mushrooms for the last 1/2 hour. I cook small potatoes in a separate pot and add them already cooked at the last minute. I highly recommend trying it.
