Spiced Brisket (Crockpot)

We love brisket in this house. My mom made it when I was a child and I too make it for my children. I found a recipe http://southernfood.about.com/od/cornedbeefandbrisket/r/bl63c9.htm and decided to try it.

1 fresh brisket, about 4 pounds
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup ketchup
1 package dry onion soup mix
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon flour mixed with 3 tablespoons cold water

Place brisket in slow cooker/Crock Pot; cut to fit if necessary. Combine water, ketchup, soup mix, Worcestershire sauce, spices, garlic and pepper; add to the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Remove brisket from the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Skim fat from juices and transfer to a saucpan. Stir in flour-water paste and cook on low until thickened. Serve brisket sliced with the gravy.

It came out really flavorful but a bit too salty. Next time I will omit the onion soup and instead use either real onion or onion flakes. This will keep the flavor while omitting the saltiness.

I can always use a good crockpot recipe. Mine is just sitting there collecting dust.

Sound like a great dish. I'm not a beef eater but would love to try it with Bison.

I have some wonderful rolls that would be great with this dish. I left the link for you in my name. Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. Yes It has been a while. Let's not stay away as long again.:-)

Try brown gravy mix instead of onion soup, with granulated onion.. should work.
