This is a little labor intensive, but worth it! Great flavors and juicy brisket. Nice rich sauce. Thanks for posting this! BEWARE though-cooking time is 2-3 hours, not 40 minutes as stated above ingredient list :)
This is a fantastic roast recipe. I agree with the other reviewer that it is well worth the work. The flavors are complex and rich. When I made it for dinner guests, everyone raved that it was the best they'd ever eaten. Although sometimes I wish I had never tried it, because now no other recipe will do. I can't just throw a roast in the oven -- it has to be this recipe! But like with anything, the more you do it, the easier and faster it gets.
