Best Garlicky Brisket Ever
December 18, 2011 § Leave a comment
I have been making this since I found the recipe. I ranks right up there with great comfort food. Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles. I normally cook a 2 to 2 1/2 pound brisket and keep the rest the same. Serve it with sour cream mashed potatoes and good crusty rolls. This hard to beat.
