  • 1 fresh beef brisket (3 pounds)
  • 1-1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cinnamon stick (3 inches)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

  1. Place brisket in a 6-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; pour over brisket. Cook, covered, on low 7-9 hours or until tender.
  2. Transfer brisket to a platter; keep warm. Discard cinnamon stick. Skim fat from cooking juices. In a blender, cover and process cooking juices until pureed; pour into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, 13-15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cut beef diagonally across the grain into thin slices; serve with sauce.
