This was terrific! The cranberry addition gave the juice a bit of a sweet taste which was a nice change from the norm. I forgot to add the 1/4 cup of water called for, but no problem because it makes enough of it's own juice; enough for a saucepan of gravy and a few cups more for pouring over the leftover meat to give it more flavor for for the next meal. I added carrots and brussel sprouts the last 90 minutes of the cooking time (I did 8 hours on Low;) would add maybe at the two hour mark next time as the carrots were not quite soft enough for my taste, though they were certainly done; just firm. Made mashed potatoes as well. This one is a keeper.

I really like the sweetness that the cranberry added to this. The brisket turned out very tender. I used my crockpot and cooked it on high for about 7 hours. I also added some sliced carrots for the last 1-1/2 hours. I will be making this again. Merci!

This recipe was SO good! The gravy was wonderful on mashed potatoes, and even the picky daughter loved this dish. I cut nearly all the layer of fat off the brisket before putting it in the crockpot, added 1 cup chicken broth that I had left over from the night before in place of the water, and cooked on high for 3 hours, then on low for a couple more hours till it was almost time for dinner. I removed the meat and sprinkled Wondra flour in the sauce to thicken it to our liking, (about 1/4-1/3 cup.) Fabulous! I will make this again, it's a real family pleaser and so easy! Thanks for a great recipe Puppies!

Can I give this recipe 10 stars? It turned out fantastic. I cooked it in my crockpot and the gravy was wonderful. I will be making this over and over this winter!
