For several years now I have been on the look out for the perfect brisket and chili recipes!
These two things can make a delicious meal when done right...and they don't cost a lot to feed a bunch of folks!
I've tried a multitude of recipes in the search for the perfect one...but still I haven't found "the One", if you know what I mean?
I do admit, though, some of the ones I've found are pretty darn good! I'm trying out a new one today that can be done in the crock pot! That's my kind of cooking, especially in the summer!
Here's one from the folks at Allrecipes.com
Slow Cooker Beef Brisket
1 three pound brisket
2 bottles chili sauce (12 ounce ea.)
1 pack Onion soup mix
2 Teaspoons garlic powder
Place the brisket in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix together the chili sauce, onion soup mix, and garlic powder. Pour over the brisket.
Cover and cook on the low setting for 8 to 10 hours.
Slice the brisket against the grain, and pour the extra gravy over the slices!
Now, this is just about as simple as it gets! Plus you don't have to worry about getting the kitchen too hot or burning and over cooking the brisket!
I'm thinking that some smashed 'taters and fresh baked bread would make this a nearly perfect meal!
Shoot! Now I'm hungry again! Guess I'll go have a bologna sandwich until the brisket is done!
Now, my friends, how about some coffee on the patio? If we hurry, we can beat the heat!
