Reviews forBeef Brisket in Beer
"This recipe is amazing I had to cook mine on the stovetop because my slow cooker died so I cooked it low and slow 4 1/2 hours it literally melts in your mouth I used a flat cut organic grass fed beef brisket and it was smaller than the recipe called for, 1 1/2 lbs , however I used the same proportions of the other ingredients in the recipe. This is a definite winner!!!"
"This is so good! We love it. I used a dark beer which might be too strong for some tastes. So you could use a lighter one. The sauce was easy and yummy too. I'm planning to use the left overs for sandwiches. This is one I will make again."
