One bite of this super tender brisket, and you'll want to curl up with it for the evening! With its pleasant gravy, this entree just asks to be served with a side of mashed potatoes. Eunice Stoen sends the recipe from Decorah, Iowa.
- 1 fresh beef brisket (2-1/2 to 3 pounds)
- 2 teaspoons liquid smoke, optional
- 1 teaspoon celery salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 can (12 ounces) beer or nonalcoholic beer
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup cold water
- Cut brisket in half; rub with liquid smoke if desired, celery salt, pepper and salt. Place in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Top with onion. Combine beer and Worcestershire sauce; pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until tender.
- Remove brisket and keep warm. Strain cooking juices; transfer to a small saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve beef with gravy. Yield: 6 servings.
