This was very delicious – but a little salty. I talked over with the butcher what i was making – and since I had never cooked with brisket before – he suggested i go with a package of – not brined, but something akin to brine – brisket. It was good – but I almost feel like it was a little too salty – I loved how easy this recipe was tho!! It made a LOT and had a good flavor! I made some delicious potatoes as a side dish and they were AWESOME. Very easy and I will for sure be making those again too!
