Cranberry sauce adds a pleasant sweetness to this slow-cooked brisket. Use jellied sauce instead of whole berry sauce if you like. —Nina Hall, Spokane, Washington

"I made this recipe for dinner tonight and my family loved it. I omitted the salt, pepper and chopped onion and used a packet of dry onion soup mix instead. I also used jellied cranberry sauce, my husband's preference. Quick to assemble, delicious and tender when done! Great recipe!"

"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."

This is a definite KEEPER in our family. I made my own cranberry sauce, using Splenda as the sweetener. I added 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to the cranberry sauce to enhance the flavor. It was delicious. latinrose

"YUM!!!!! This is a very tasty and EASY recipe. I used a 2.5 pound roast instead, it was leaner meat but came out so tender. I did use by accident "no salt added" tomato sauce, so it tasted just a bit too sweet for my palate. To fix it, I added 1/2 a packet of lipton' beefy onion soup mix."
