“This tangy, sweet brisket recipe makes a wonderful main dish, or a fabulous appetizer when paired with crackers or bread rounds. It's been a favorite with my husband's family for years. This recipe can also be prepared in a slow cooker.”

Original recipe yields 16 servings



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place brisket in 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine dressing, soup mix, and cranberries. Pour over brisket, and cover pan with foil.
  3. Cook for 3 to 4 hours, or until brisket is extremely tender. Brisket will get very dark/caramelized; this adds flavor, and doesn't mean that you have overcooked it.

About a week before you plan on serving it, prepare the meat and let marinade over night in the refrigerator. (I added fresh carrote and sliced onions) Cook it, let cool then slice it and freeze. Reheat in the cooking liquid. When heated take the liquid, cranberries, and vegetables and puree them. Cook the liquid down and you have a wonderful gravy to go with a delicious brisket! I made this for Thanksgiving along with my turkey. I have turkey left but not a bit of Brisket!

I've made this several times in the crockpot, and it's always a winner. This same sauce is also good baked on chicken. I bet it would even be good with pork. Very versatile and delicious!



I have been making this recipe for awhile now. This recipe may sound strange, but is very, very good. The tangy and sweet are excellent together. So easy to make too. I usually make "Super Squash" with this recipe, which is found on this website as well. This is the best recipe I make, and I make alot of recipes. Definitely try this.
