I made this as a regular pot roast and put the brisket on a plate to eat. It was very good with the flavor from the onions, but after I made the gravy I realized it was a very intense onion flavor that almost made my eyes water. I think next time I will add a few more vegetables to the crock pot like celery and carrots.
Slow-Cooked Brisket in Onion Gravy
From EatingWell: January/February 2011
This brisket is cooked with beef broth and loads of onions that melt down into a luscious gravy. Serve the brisket and gravy over a mound of steaming mashed potatoes with a side of green beans or sliced carrots for a perfect Sunday dinner.
7 Reviews for Slow-Cooked Brisket in Onion Gravy
Love this dish, have made it many times. We usually have gravy left over so I freeze it and use it again the next time we make it. Delicious!
I made this right by the recipe and it was so very good. I have never had beef brisket...only corned beef brisket and totally enjoyed it! Didn't brown it and it still turned out great.This is a keeper.
Never made brisket before so I was a little wary but it was great. I didn't have the option of getting "first cut" for a leaner meal, since there was none available. I made the onion tomato mixture the night before and put it in the refrige so it would be a quick am prep. Did not brown the meat. It was a bit fatty as expected but really delicious. I refrigerated left overs, skimmed the fat and made the sloppy joe's which were great too.
Overall, a delicious, easy two for one recipe.
This was delicious and my dinner guests loved it. I was out of thyme, so I replaced it with dried oregano. I cooked the brisket on my slow-cooker's "low" setting. The result was a tender, fall-apart juicy hunk of meat. I can't wait to try the sloppy joe's, next.
