This combination made for lovely Sweet and Sour Brisket. I was more then surprised to find the combination of cranberries and onion soup mix could make brisket taste so good! I used coarsely ground pepper. Served over noodles had four of us all agreeing ... a five! Thank you for another Merlot winner.
