Beef Brisket

Beef Brisket is a fairly inexpensive cut of meat, cooked slowly beef brisket becomes fork tender. This recipe for beef brisket from Virgina McDowell, Jefferson City, Mo.  1975, she is my Grandmother. She makes one delicious beef brisket. I suggest buying a packer trimmed brisket, and doing the trimming of the fat yourself, you will save a ton of money doing this.
