  • “Wow!This meat was tender, tasty and so easy to do.I used a packet of Lipton’s new Beefy Onion Soup and at the end I added a little water and flour to make gravy.The “secret ingredient”, the cranberry, really just made the meal.It gave the beef a mildly tangy, slightly sweet flavor that was wonderful!I normally don’t like cranberry with meat of any kind, but something made me try this recipe and i’ll never be sorry!I served it with spoon rolls (recipe #21317)and a ceasar salad.”

  • “My family liked it!No Fuss Cooking!”

  • “I made this in my Crockpot (as per step #4), and used a 3 lb bottom round roast….I threw in some carrots and red potatoes, too.The beef was tender and juicy with a little tang, but the jellied cranberry sauce sort of disappeared.I will make this again, but I think whole-berry cranberry sauce would be a better choice.Thanx for this recipe!”

  • “Perhaps I’m looking for something more from my brisket.Although the meat was tender, there just wasn’t any good flavor.This recipe was no good.I wouldn’t make it again.”
