  • Really good! I did all the above except I cooked in the oven, on low, 350 for two hours. Tasted really good and was very moist! Will be making this again soon! - 5/21/13

  • An amazing dish! I used dried cranberries and granny smith apples as that is what I had on hand, and also added about 1/2 cup of red table wine to the brisket as it simmered. I had to substitute apple cider with apple/grape juice and just added a pinch of apple cider vinegar. VERY filling, GREAT! - 8/16/07
