Slow-Cooked Beef Brisket

 Slow-Cooked Beef Brisket
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. — Anna Stodolak Volant, Pennsylvania
