With the diversity of reviews, I almost didn't try this, but it was either a rave or unedible, so I made it. Very glad I did. It is a very tasty dinner that we have enjoyed and will make again and again. Suggestions: 1. Meat Selection - Do NOT use corned beef brisket.. plain beef brisket should be somewhat marbled with fat for super tender results. 2. Chili Sauce - Use 12oz bottles of Heinz Chili Sauce. If you can't find it, mix 1C Catsup, 1Tbs Worchestershire sauce and 1tsp dried mustard per pound of brisket instead of the chili sauce. 3. Sliced Onion - Put on bottom of crock pot. 4. Sliced mushrooms are a great addition. 5. Potatoes and carrots - Very tasty addition but cook at least 4 hours, but OK to put in the crock pot at the start. 6. Gravy - I used 2Tbs flour mixed in 1/4 Cup water added to the gravy after removing the meat and veggies. We planned to do sandwiches the next day, but liked the veggies so well that I added more veggies and made more sauce/gravy without putting meat back in. 7. Extend sauce - I used 2 Cups catsup, 2 packs onion soup mix, 3 Cups water and 3 beef bullion cubes. Thickened with flour/water mixture after cooking additional mixture 4 hours.
