A definite keeper! This was sooooo delicious! I cooked this in my crockpot after browning for 8 hours and it came out so moist and tender. I only used 3/4 cup of water and added cornstarch at the end to thicken the sauce. This is by far the best brisket recipe I have ever come across - thanks.
Kitten: this is a 10 plus recipe, I stopped in the middle of dinner to rate this magnificant brisket, couldn't wait... it's also very tender... dh said "boy did you find a winner".. thanks a million for your help. Nita
My husband has been begging me to make him a beef brisket. We found this recipe and gave it a try yesterday. It was FABULOUS! Definitely a keeper. We are already planning to make it again and invite friends and family over!
