Out of this world!! Never knew brisket could taste so nice having always just boiled it as a stew.

this is a great brisket recipe that's easy to make. it comes out soft, juicy, and wonderfully flavorful. I used about twice the amount of tomatoes. Everything else I followed exactly. Highly recommend!
