Reviews forSpicy Beef Brisket
"I was skeptical of this recipe with the low cooking time for the brisket, but it turned out great. The sauce is a sweet, mildly spicy (not too much for my spice sensitive 7 year old) gravy with tons of flavor and the brisket comes out tender and juicy. I browned the brisket on medium high to get a nice fond in the pan, and did the onions and garlic a bit closer to medium to give it some extra time. A very easy recipe and one we will do again!"
"I always have a hard time making beef flavorful and this recipe does it! I adjusted the spiciness by doing 1/2 chili sauce & 1/2 ketchup and only doing a little chili powder. I also added baby carrots & celery with the onions & used corn startch/water instead of flour. It was so yummy & the best homemade beef I've had!"
"This is absolutely wonderful for a family gathering, especially if you like a little "kick" in the flavor!"
"carysangel, there is no temperature mentioned because it is cooked on top of the stove, not put into the oven.Karen Y."
