I served this on St Patricks Day, my husband asked me please NOT to wait to next year to fix this again! I had to substitute a chuck roast as I couldn't find brisket. But it turned out wonderful! I pureed the sauce with the veggies for a bit thicker sauce. The ONLY thing I would change is to cut back on the sugar. I served it with potatoes that I cooked with the roast and buttered cabbage. A great St Patty's Day meal!

This was wonderful. I made it in an electric skillet set at 200 degrees for 6 hours. My meat was too big to fit in a crockpot (5lb). I left out the carrots as we don't like them and added mushrooms in the last hour. It was fantastic for supper and the leftovers made a delicious open face roast beef sandwich the next day. Delish!

WOW- this is the best brisket!! I have made a number of crock pot recipes but many times the meat is tough-- I made this as the recipe states but I didn't have guinness- so I used regular beer-- I also used only extra beef broth-( no water) --and I added a sweet onion/extra carrots. I also added salt + black pepper.I cooked this on HIGH level for 7 hours, then took the brisket out and thin sliced across the grain- AND put the slices back in the crock pot and cooked on high another hour. I served this over homemade" spaetzle" noodles. Thanks CHIA for this outstanding recipe which I will definately make again.
