“I use this recipe when I go to winter potlucks and want something everyone will love. Though I have seen kids who scrape away the mushrooms and onion, they still rave about how the meat tastes and gobble it right up.” —Aysha Schurman, Ammon, Idaho
Chili sauce, brown sugar and garlic season this robust beef brisket from Margaret Haugh Heilman of Houston, Texas. Topped with tender onions and served with a slightly sweet gravy, the entree tastes special enough for company.
This flavorful meal is a must for St. Patrick's Day, but great anytime of the year. While it usually cooks on the stovetop, a slow cooker makes it even easier. The recipe serves four nicely with enough leftover meat for Reuben sandwiches or other dishes. —Michelle Rhodes, Fort Bliss, Texas
Passed down through multiple generations in our family, this robust corned beef and cabbage recipe is requested often in our house. The Irish stout beer adds excellent richness to the corned beef. Just throw the ingredients together in the slow cooker and let them simmer until delicious!—Karin Brodbeck, Red Hook, New York
When my husband and I were both working full-time, we loved this recipe's 10-hour cook time. The beef brisket tastes so good after simmering all day in the crockpot, and the chili sauce adds a unique touch to the gravy.
