Friday Foodie

With the holiday season upon us, I am sure you are looking for quick and easy dinner suggestions. This recipe is so ridiculously easy, it really doesn't warrant pictures but here you go.

 It is just three ingredients-
Beef brisket
1 package of onion soup mix
14oz can of stewed tomatoes

You will need a piece of beef brisket that just fits into your slow cooker. Go ahead and cram it in there. 
 Sprinkle the onion soup mix on top. I use Lipton's but recently saw a pin where you can make your own onion soup mix. Be forewarned I haven't tried it yet so I can't vouch. I will try it next time because I had the hardest time finding onion soup mix at the store. I had to settle for Beefy onion which I think is the same thing. The final result was the same.

 Pour the can of stewed tomatoes on top. No need to stir.

Put the lid on and heat on low for 6-8 hours, or overnight, or whatever. You can't mess this one up. 

I let mine cook overnight. This is what it looked like this morning. I really wish you could smell this. 

Just remove the meet and cut it or pull it and return to the warm juices to serve. If you want to get really fancy remove the meat and let it cool. Then slice it really thin across the grain. Use an immersion blender to transform the cooking liquid into a sauce that looks like it took hours to make. Return the sliced brisket to the sauce and warm it up before serving.

If you try this recipe I would love to know how it goes for you. Good luck and Happy Holidays!
