    My office is closed for the second day straight, the snow has stopped (for now) BF is out plowing and wanted to have a nice hot meal ready tonight

    I decided to make this thread after I got it all done in the crock pot, so suck it

    @Bro, @Oderus, @Engaged Chicken, @gwartney

    I started with a beef brisket, brought it to room temperature, salted and peppered it liberally
    seared the meat on both sides for about 8 minutes each side
    removed it from the pot, added 2 onions, a pound of carrots and a pound of parsnips cut up in chunks and browned them
    added salt and pepper and crushed garlic, some vegetable paste (Cento--a combo of tomato paste and aromatics) Dijon mustard
    top the veggies with the brisket fat side up and pour equal parts beef and veggie stock over the beef covering it 3/4
    set the crock pot for 6 hours on low

    I highly recommend the Cuisinart slow cooker--It has a searing feature that lets you do everything in one pot

    Damn brisket is getting as expensive as steak. It used to be $1.99 lb not so long ago.
