This tender brisket is served with a savory cranberry gravy that's made right in the bag. You'll want to serve the slices with mashed potatoes just so you can drizzle the gravy over them. —Peggy Stigers, Fort Worth, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2013

This may seem like a strange combination of ingredients but this recipe is delightful! I did however use mine in a crock pot as oppose to the oven. Worked great!! Not only did the house smell wonderful while cooking but flavorful gravy was wonderful served over mashed potatos. You will not be disapointed!

This was easy to put together, and really tasty. I cooked my brisket in a stoneware dish and covered it with tin foil. Baked it at 300 for 6 hours. Thanks for this recipe
