"I wanted to find a way to make beef brisket that wasn't a BBQ recipe but wasn't just plain beef either. This is what I came up with and my family LOVED it." — JosiesMom

1 (15 ounce) can
onion, sliced into rings
celery, with leaves
4 large cloves
What a great find! I used the crock pot option, taking 7 hours on low. I was missing a few items, so took a chance and replaced merlot with cabernet, and basalmic with red wine vinegar. (In other words, any red wine and vinegar works.) I also added about an eighth a cup of brown sugar. Sorry for obliterating the recipe, but my family really liked it. It was a bit too sweet after a full serving for my 9 year old, so a full 5 stars to you (since I was the one who added the sugar). On top of garlic mashed potatoes, a winner! We will make it again.
This was pretty good but certainly not five stars. If I made it again, I probably wouldn't make it the same way. I cooked it in the oven for four hours - used a 4 pound brisket but it did not come out fork tender. I used fresh rosemary, extra carrots and I added some liquid smoke, I also thickened the juices to make a gravy. The carrots were delicious but the meat a little too tough.
It worked great--I skipped marinating it and just tossed all the ingredients into a slow cooker for 6 hours on high (or even 7). Delicious!
This was very good! I did it in the crock pot and we loved it. I'll be sad when the leftovers are gone!
We've been wanting to try a beef brisket for a long time. It was right around New Years and it didn't make sense to try a BBQ recipe so we tried this one. I'm not a vegetable eater, but the sauce made all the veggies taste great and my boyfriend and I were fighting over them. The second time we did it we added potatos! YUM!
Great new recipe...however I thought the balsamic came through a little too strong but my hubby, who hates vinegar of all types, loved it. Very tender and sliced beautifully. Will definitely make again, with a reduction in the balsamic.
My whole family enjoyed this with mashed potatoes. I threw in a few extra carrots because we just love them. Thanks for the recipe!!
A knock-out! My family gobbled this up like there was no tomorrow, and they're not big beef eaters!
