Slow Cooked Orange and Onion Brisket

Slow Cooked Orange and Onion Brisket - Healing and Eating
This recipe was adapted from my mom’s favorite brisket recipe, which she got from a friend. It would taste great served with my mashed rosemary and garlic cauliflower. I made the cinnamon and apple optional. I’ve had it with and without those ingredients, and it tasted great either way. The apple and cinnamon are great fall flavors, but the orange juice and onions are the real stars. They give this dish a tangy, sweet and sour taste that I personally love.

Original Recipe (that I adapted)

2 lb brisket
1pk Lipton onion soup mix
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c applesauce
1 cup orange juice


1. Brown Brisket on both sides.
2. Cover and cook on stove for 3 to 4 hours.I ‘m not sure how crockpot would convert over. Just make sure you have enough liquid. You will have to adjust ingredients.

        1. Sorry, I don’t post or calculate calories or fat. I actually don’t believe in counting calories or fat. In fact, I encourage eating as much healthy fat as possible, and as many calories as you want as long as the ingredients are healthy and low in sugar.
