because this should have been an easier project, but it became less so... by starting late for a slow cooker for dinner. So this is what I did fifteen minutes prior to the picture of the time on this first clock is when I put everything into the crock pot, notice the "original" one
the Rival, yes it is thirty years old and we had had two in the restaurant back then for soups and chilis.
In went the brisket into the olive oil, but first the pan was sprayed with PAM and then the 2.67 lbs. piece of meat was first browned in my large skillet with a coating of flour embedded with garlic powder, sea salt, cracked black pepper, thyme, and a packet of no sodium beef bouillon. Then I went to relax and watch some Netflix in bed with my iced packs smartly covered in wash clothes and attached with the top Velcro fastener off of my boots, Hubby's brilliant idea!
At a rather late time, although, in reality for us early bird eaters forty-five more minutes is not bad at all! And so it was fork tender by five minutes to five, yay!
Meat already removed below, veggies and lovely gravy still in the pot, two red potatoes, two gold potatoes, several baby carrots, a couple of hand fulls of cherry tomatoes, apricot preserves smeared on meat, half an onion, two garlic cloves, two bay leaves and a partridge in a pear tree, just kidding!
On this note of a demonstration of sharing your blessings and we will too, allow me to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy good night!
And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
