    Ive make this several times. Once with a three pound brisket and a chuck roast. It so easy and flavorful. It comes out very tender each time. This time I’m going to add more carrots, more onions and try potatoes as well. Super tasty!

    So tender, juicy, flavorful, and relatively easy. I used BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. I flipped the meat over at some point to get the other half time in the juice to get more fork tender. I also seared all sides, not just 2. So amazing!

    Kid approved! Although I had an issue with the gravy. The corn starch kept balling up.

    My sister-in-law gave me this recipe 50+ years ago but we sprinkle an envelope of dry onion soup mix (or golden mushroom-onion) over the meat and add a cup of water, pouring it over the soup mix and meat carefully.. It makes plenty of gravy because you can add more liquid if you need more since there's enough dry mix to flavor it.

    I couldn't afford the beef brisket so I bought a chuck roast, which is what the internet recommended as a substitute. It came out amazing!! Followed all other directions as given.
