When is the last time you’ve had a traditional beef brisket? You know the one-tender beef with mushrooms in a rich flavorful sauce. The beef brisket that makes the whole house smell great for snuggling on the sofa, like a comfortable day. It had been years since I made beef brisket, but since I discovered this recently, I was able to make this Sensational Slow Cooked Beef Brisket, I fell in love with brisket all over again.
