Reviews for Berry Nice Brisket
"Delicious brisket, the gravy is wonderful"
"THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST BRISKET! I MADE THIS FOR A FAMILY COOK OFF CONTEST WE HAVE EVERY YEAR AND WON! EVERYONE WANTED THE RECIPE. THIS HAS BECOME ONE OF MY FAMILIES MOST REQUESTED MEALS. BRISKET IS VERY TENDER AND THE GRAVY IS OUT OF THIS WORLD. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOME EXTRA BREAD I FIND MYSELF CLEANING THE CASSEROLE DISH WITH BREAD TO GET EVERY DROP OF THE GRAVY. I HAVE ALSO SUBITUTED THE CRANBERRY JUICE WITH MERLOT AND IT IS GREAT. THIS GRAVY IS GREAT."
