Delicious ! I make it every year for a Passover brisket. I cook it the day before I'm going to serve it and then I slice the meat and let it sit overnight(in the refrigerator) in the juice to make it more flavorful. Then reheat.

Make sure you use a brisket FLAT, not the point (lotta fat). To serve cut it across the grain of the meat, not with it, so it will be tender.
