"This is the best brisket you will ever taste. No matter who comes for dinner, they always make sure that I'll be making this brisket. It is a very traditional dish for Rosh Hashanah and Passover but it certainly is a winner any time of the year for anyone who loves very tender beef."

AMAZING!!!! I did do some things different. I let it come to a boil then I put into a baking dish with a lid and put it into the oven at 325 degrees for 2 1/2 hours. I also added Lipton onion soup mix on top and instead of white vinegar I used apple cider vinegar. I also added carrots. It came out delicious, and I will be making this again and again! thank you :)
I enjoyed this quite a bit. I'm a tough scorer, so 3 stars for me is pretty good. I don't understand the sitting in the fridge overnight though. In theory it must be to absorb more flavor, but I found it to be opposite. It tasted better to me fresh off the stove than refrigerated till the next day. I made a large enough brisket were it lasted 3 days for leftovers (I'm the only meat eater in the house besides my dogs LOL).
Simple, delicious, made it as the recipe was posted. Note: A cast iron dutch oven + the vinegar in the recipe can cause the meat to have an "off" taste. This is better suited for a ceramic slow cooker.
This is the best brisket recipe I have made it came out perfect . I froze the leftovers when I used it for suprise guest everone raved and thought i had just made it . I wouldn"t change a thing about this recipe.
I thought this recipe was excellent. I followed it exactly, except that my brisket was 6lbs, so I added a little more water to the pot. I used homemade spicy ketchup, and raw apple cider vinegar. It was perfectly seasoned, and very tender. Thanks for a great recipe! I am saving this one!
I bought an 8 pound brisket & cut it in half. This gave me a chance to try the recipe twice & have plenty of leftovers as most said that was the only draw back... not enough left over. Both briskets turned out super and I know this is going to be made again & again. Thanks for sharing!!!! Amazingly easy to make. I made exactly as the recipe was written.
This was wonderful. The only changes I made were that I added the onion and garlic while I was browning the meat. I also used chili sauce instead of ketchup. Definitely a keeper.
I made this for dinner tonight and it is a keeper. It was easy to prepare and it came out tender with plenty of flavor. I did add and extra clove or two of garlic as we love garlic. The leftovers will definately be used! Thanks for a great and easy recipe!
