Slow Cooked Orange and Onion Brisket

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.

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.
