I have had this recipe printed off for a long time and I finally got around to trying it. It was SO easy. The best part is, the brisket I bought was so big that I have more of it in the freezer. I cut it into sections that would fit in my crockpot and froze the rest in crockpot-size parts.
2 onions, thinly sliced
4 lbs beef brisket (not corned)
2 T. ketchup
1 T. red wine vinegar
1 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
4 cloves minced garlic
water to cover bottom of pot
Strew onions in bottom of crockpot. Place brisket on top of the onions with the fatty part on the top. Stir together the ketchup, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper. Rub onto the brisket. Sprinkle garlic on top of the brisket. Pour in just enough water to cover the bottom of the pot. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. I served this by itself first and poured some of the juice and onions on my plate with it. I also made brisket sandwiches and put the onions from the bottom of the pan on the sandwich. So delicious!
When it is done, it will shred like this:
