Recipe Notes

  1. I made this recipe in a slow cooker. However, you could also make it in the oven in a dutch oven or small roasting pan with a lid. If you make this in a dutch oven, you will follow the same instructions, but instead cook it in the oven 450 F degrees for 3 hours.
  2. I used Brisket for this, but you can use beef chuck, beef round, or buy the pre-cubed beef stew meat.
  3. The 6 servings were based on 2 lbs of beef brisket.  If you have more beef, you will get more servings.
