This recipe produces an amazingly tender and flavorful beef brisket. The original recipe was given to me by a butcher at a meat market, but it has evolved over the years.

This is my favorite brisket recipe. Found it in an Italian cookbook from "The Hill" in St. Louis. My recipe also calls for 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup.
