this was not hard to do but tasted like it did take a long time

Pretty simple to make and it was pretty good the first time I made it. I may start tweaking it a little, but again, as is, it was a hit.

Great beer-braised brisket, very simple to make and is one of the tastiest dishes around the slow-cooker.
