My dad used to make this in his deli in New England and it was the menu's top seller. Easy to make in the slow cooker and the best gravy ever!

  2. Cook on Low, all day, for the most tender brisket you will ever eat.
  3. For gravy, remove brisket from the slow cooker, and increase temperature to High. Mix flour with 1/4 cup water, add to pot, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

This was the first time I've made brisket, and it came out wonderful! The only tip for those of you whose meat dried out: check how it is looking after about 3-4 hours. I cut the meat up at this point, against the grain, and added it back to the pot. After another 2 hours or so simmering in the juice, it was tender, and the sauce was great on wide egg noodles. A keeper!

Nicki, The brisket was cooked in a crockpot for 9 hours, and prepared exactly what the recipe called for. I did however, have to made adjustments because I made it for 5 people only. It had a very good flavor but it was very tough. What did I do wrong? Or could it have been just the brisket? It was a 1.50 Lancaster Brand Brisket. Please let me know, because I would like to make it again soon. Thanks, Nancy P.

ALWAYS turns out wonderful! Had not tried cooking Brisket, although loved eating it, as always sounded complicated to make, until I found this recipe. Always tender and so simple and economical to make. Can't say enough about how easy and GREAT this recipe is.
