Grandma Rose's Fruit Brisket


(7 votes) 2 7

The most tender, tasty, surprising meat dish. Don't tell them about all the fruits they'll never believe you, just serve and enjoy the compliments. My Grandma Rose was a child of the depression and she only made this dinner on holidays, which we all looked forward to.

Season the brisket on both sides and sear on all sides in a hot frying pan. Then in your crockpot, put down your 2 c of onions and place seared brisket on top. Add in all the fruits. Pour 3 cups of water over everything and cook on low for 4 hours. Refrigerate overnight (it's easier to cut it real thin when it's cold). Place sliced beef and all the gravy and fruit into your crockpot on high to heat for 20 minutes and serve.
