Need a fix-it-and-forget-it entree for Christmas? Give this slow-cooker specialty a try. I like to serve it with boiled red potatoes.—Jeannie Mangan, Spokane, Washington
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1 fresh beef brisket (5 pounds)
- 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
- 3/4 cup horseradish sauce
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup cold water
- Combine the onion powder, salt, pepper and allspice; rub over brisket. Cut brisket in half; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker.
- Combine the cranberry sauce, horseradish, lemon juice and bay leaf; pour over beef.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until tender.
- Remove brisket and keep warm. Strain cooking juices; discard bay leaf. Transfer 3 cups cooking juices to a small saucepan.
