Reviews for Brisket with Cranberry Gravy
"there must be something wrong with me. this was not enjoyed by my husband or me."
"a true southern favorite and comfort food classic with a fall twist. Love the addition of cranberries."
"This is the best brisket I've ever had! It was so easy too!"
"After Thxg, I had cranberry, but no one wanted another turkey sandwich; I found this recipe, so I got some "London broil" beef (no idea what the cut was), browned the meat & onions, used pressure cooker for 15 minutes (that's my taste: don't like "fall apart" meat). I'd added a pinch of pepper flakes and a splash of sweet-ish red wine (hostess gift that no one liked).The sauce nicely complemented the strong meat taste. I NEVER make beef, so not only was everyone surprised at the dish, but really happy that it turned out truly tasty. Leftovers made wonderful lettuce wraps and pretty good "rolls". (I'll put pretty much anything inside bread or biscuit dough).I just bought an extra bag of cranberries, just to make sure I can make this again. Will try with a nice wine and fruity salsa instead of tomato, or maybe some orange slices.Really like that the recipe is basic, so cook can add his/her own flavor preferences. GJ, ToH!"
"I used this over a fresh picnic ham that had been smoked low and slow for 7-8 hrs. I transferred, after letting it rest, to a 500 degree oven for 20 min, turning every 5 min, to crisp up that layer of fan. If you like Boston Butt, you will like a fresh picnic ham. The sauce really, really was great over this roast."
"Just plain wonderful."
"This recipe is almost the same as I got from Campbell's kitchen, but cooked in dutch oven, very tasty......."
"Very different but yummy"
