Cousin David's Slow Cooker Brisket

Made  times

"This is a family recipe passed along by my late cousin David. It is so simple...just four ingredients thrown in the slow cooker! Not only is it great to come home to a hot delicious meal...your home will smell wonderful too! It is great with the extra gravy spooned over egg noodles or mashed potatoes."

This was very good, but I only used 1 bottle of chili sauce, because that's all I had on hand. I am not sure we would have liked it with both bottles. There was plenty of gravy for the mashed ...

Great Recipe!!!! Be sure to use Heinz Chili Sauce. Simple, easy few ingredients. Thanks Cousin David!!
