Reviews for Cranberry Beef Brisket
"The first time I made this I doubled the recipe. I served it to a group of about 14 adults. It was a hit. Had hardly any leftovers and it was so easy to make. I have since made this again for the family many times. I do not change a thing in the recipe. It's always great."
"This is very good and so easy to make! Flavor combination seems odd when looking at the recipe but it all comes together incredibly well. I don't care for cranberry sauce by itself but having it cooked like this it came out wonderful!"
