One bite of this super-tender brisket, and your family will be hooked! The rich gravy is perfect for spooning over a side of creamy mashed potatoes. —Eunice Stoen, Decorah, Iowa

"My family really liked this. The meat was very tender but I don't know if it was due to the cut of meat or the cooking process. I used a flat cut brisket. I think this is healthy than the way I make roast beef in the crock (onion soup mix and cream of mushroom soup)."

"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."
