  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Liked the idea of carrots and red bell peppers but my brisket was far from tender after the allotted time. We liked it but probably not enough to make it again. Thank you though for the recipe.
  4. 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!
  5. Loved it, but made the following changes: 1. no water 2. replaced tomato sauce w/ 10-oz. Rotelle 3. used 1 green pepper and no carrots.
