Melt in your Mouth Brisket of Beef

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by Karen..

This meat comes out so tender and the basil makes the carrots and potatoes so sweet and delicious. All of the flavors meld together so well and it smells fabulous while cooking. This is an absolute Sunday Dinner family favorite.

Oh Karen! This was sooooo good! I mixed all the seasonings and used it as a rub, and baked the brisket fat side up, which helps keep the meat moist. We had asparagus with hollandaise sauce on the side. Delicious!
