  • Summary

    Wonderfully juicy, flavor exploding, melt-in-your-mouth Slow Cooker Beef Brisket is "better than any restaurant” according to my food critic husband! It's the ultimate easy company dinner because it can be made days in advance then reheated in the slow cooker for stress free entertaining (which is actually my preferred method)!

    • 1 cup water
    • 1 tablespoon beef bouillon
