Reviews for Slow-Cooked Tender Beef Brisket
"My husband and I both loved this recipe. It was easy and very flavorful. I had a stout beer instead of wine to accompany the dish. I used regular beer in the recipe but next time I'm going to try using a stout, which I think will really add to the bold taste."
"I left out the green pepper only because I didn't have any on hand. My boyfriend thought this was 5 stars, but I couldn't get past that beer taste. It wasn't my favorite, but I gave it four stars as an average."
"The brisket was very tender without falling apart. The pan juices are very tasty but hard to describe. Is it a barbeque sauce? a gravy?"
"Very good recipe. The beef brisket was WAY to expensive for me. So I substituted the Eye of Round Roast and it worked out great. I also substituted Sprite for the nonalcoholic beer. I thickened the pan juices with cornstarch and water. (1/4 cup cornstarch, plus enough water to make one cup total)."
