Cooking MethodSlow Cooker


  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1/2 rounds
  • 1/2 cup dark raisins
  • 3 pounds beef brisket
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. In a slow cooker, mix the orange and lemon juices, brown sugar, and tomato paste. Stir in the onions, carrots, and raisins.
  2. Cut the brisket crosswise into 2 or 3 large pieces to fit into slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Stack the brisket on top of the vegetables.

the recipe calls for 2 carrots, cut into 1/2 What? I am hoping it is 1/2" slices--I am going to try this

I made this last week. There were 4 adults eating, there wasn't 1 bite leftover! I made 2 side dishes and rolls, some of this was left, but the brisket was gone. I definately will be making it again!
