This is a different type of brisket recipe of eastern Jewish European influence. Unlike most briskets that are cooked in the oven, this brisket is simmered. Best to prepare a day or so in advance; by refrigerating the brisket becomes firm and makes it easier to trim fat off and to slice. Freezes and reheats well.
Almost like cider in meat form, this tasty slow cooker brisket makes a terrific autumn meal.
