Very Best Brisket

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"Easy, tender and delicious is the best way to describe this meal. It's a one pot dish of brisket, potatoes, carrots and onions, then voila, a meal fit for a king! You can serve it holiday time or any time. So few ingredients, but the end result is just mouth watering good! Every Passover this is requested, and it comes out perfect every year!"

Make sure you use a brisket FLAT, not the point (lotta fat). To serve cut it across the grain of the meat, not with it, so it will be tender.
