I won't rate this for stars, but this was a disaster for me. The brisket did not render any juice. One teaspoon of cornstarch did nothing to thicken the gravy which is really just syrup. I finally used an entire tablespoon of cornstarch and it still was too thin. There was not enough liquid to cook the veggies so I simmered them separately in water. The end result was the meat was chewy and the veggies were overcooked. We wound up getting takeout. Sorry chef, but I did try my best.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray pot with cooking spray and brown brisket turning to cook through.
  2. Simmer 2 hours, Brisket will render own juices. KEEP CHECKING, RESPRAY AS NECESSARY OR ADD WATER AS NECESSARY.
  3. Add carrots and potatoes, cook 30 minutes.
  4. In separate small saucepan add 2 cups water, cornstarch, Splenda, and 2 tbsp of juice from the cooked meat and veggies, simmer to make gravy.
  5. Spray roast pan and place meat and veggies, cover with gravy and bake about 1 hour.
  6. Serve brisket on a platter surrounded by vegetables. Goes great with cranberry sauce, or anything! Everyone will love it and it is definitely worth the effort!
