Beef Brisket in Gravy Recipe

Publisher Photo
This tender roast has remained our very favorite family main dish over many years. Often, I make it ahead and reheat the beef in the gravy. It's delicious served with hot cooked noodles or mashed potatoes. -Erlene Cornelius, Spring City, Tennessee

This is incredibly easy to make and tasty. I made twice the gravy, as more is always better on my plate! A great stand by.

MY REVIEW

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.
