Number of Servings: 10


    1 3.5-4 pound beef brisket
    2 cups water
    1/4 cup ketchup
    1 envelope onion soup mix
    2 Tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
    1 clove chopped garlic
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 cup water
    3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour


Place the brisket in the crockpot, trimming if necessary.

In a separate bowl, combine the 2 cups water, ketchup, soup mix, Worchestershire sauce, cinnamon, garlic, and pepper. Pour over brisket. Cover and cook for 10-11 hours on low or 5-5 1/2 hours on high. Turn the crockpot off and make gravy. Keep the brisket in the crockpot while you complete the final step.

To make gravy:
Ladle out about 1 1/2 cups of the cooking liquid.
In a small saucepan, stir the 1/4 cup cold water into the flour. Slowly add the 1 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir one minute more.

Remove the brisket to a serving platter and pour the gravy over the surface of the brisket.

Slice the beef in thin slices across the grain. Serve with the gravy.

Makes 10 servings. About 6 ounces each.
