TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 5-1/2 hours YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 fresh beef brisket (3 pounds), halved
  • 1 can (14 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup thawed cranberry juice concentrate
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  • 1. Place onion in a 5-qt. slow cooker; top with brisket. Combine cranberry sauce and juice concentrate; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low for 5-1/2 to 6 hours or until meat is tender.
  • 2. Remove brisket and keep warm. Strain cooking juices, discarding onion; skim fat. Place in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; gradually stir into the pan. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Thinly slice brisket across the grain; serve with gravy.
