Slow Cooker Brisket With Cranberry Gravy. Roasted Swede And Parmesan.

This video completely cracked me up. The Shlomones.

I’m dying here!

I am not Jewish, but we always celebrate Chanukah (Hanukkah?) with food, especially latkes. Tonight dinner is this dreamy brisket. The cranberry sauce is so good and very festive, too. And the Swede…Oh my. Crispy and crackly with thyme and cheese.

Slow Cooker Brisket With Cranberry Gravy


1 fresh beef brisket (2-1/2 pounds)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon prepared mustard


1. Rub brisket with salt and pepper; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker.

2. Combine the cranberry sauce, tomato sauce, onion and mustard; pour over brisket.

3. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender. Remove brisket; thinly slice across the grain. Skim fat from cooking juices; serve with brisket.

Yield: 6-8 servings.
