Serve with potatoes and a deep red winw such as Syrah, Cabernet or Zinfandel. Ingredients:
Fresh beef brisket, 3.5 to 4 lbs
2 cups water
1/4 cup catsup
1 package onion soup mix (e.g., Lipton)
3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. red crushed pepper
1/2 tsp. chipotle chili pepper
Combine all ingredients and pour over the brisket. Cover and cook roughly 8 hours.
For gravy, you can combine 3 tbsp. flour with 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan and stir in 1 1/2 cups of the crockpot liquid after cooking. We typically just strain the liquid and drip it over the meat directly.
