Fixed today and left it to cook while I went to church. I had a 4.5 lb brisket so I doubled the gravy (used 2 c. water/ 2 env. onion soup mix). Added 2 sliced onions and 1 lg jar mushrooms. When I arrived home, I ended up adding 2 cups of beef broth as most of the juice had evaporated, even though it was covered, but it worked out fine. It was absolutely delicious. Mashed potatoes and your choice of vegetables...great Sunday dinner.
Could'nt get any easier! Great Sunday meal we loved it.
