Fantastic recipe. I really love the flavors and how easy it is to make. Also, the ingredients are generally things I have on hand. The orange zest really adds to the sauce. I used my microplane zester. Also, I added a whole onion, because I love them. If your crockpot tends to cook quickly you may want to use a frozen brisket rather than a thawed one or cut an hour or so off the cooking time. My brisket cooked really fast. Also, if you cannot have or do not like salty foods you may want to use lower sodium teriyaki sauce or dillude the sauce with some water. I promise the recipe will still be delicious if you make it with a low sodium diet/taste in mind.
