Celery Seed Brisket

* 1 beef brisket  (3-4 lbs)
* 28oz can crushed tomatoes
* 1 large red onion, chopped
* 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
* 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
* 4 garlic cloves, minced
* 1 tbsp brown sugar
* 1 tsp celery seed
* 1 tsp pepper
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp ground cumin
* 4 tsp constarch
* 3 tbsp cold water

1. Place the brisket in your slow cooker.
2. Mix all the remaining ingredients (except the cornstarch and water) in a large bowl. Pour this over the meat. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
3. Remove meat to a serving platter and keep warm.  In a large saucepan, mix the cornstarch and water until smooth.  Gradually stir in 4 cups of cooking liquid.  Bring to a boil; cook and stir for about 2 minutes until thickened.
4. Slice the brisket across the grain and serve with the gravy.

This had a great flavor! I think you could use about any cut of meat for this recipe, so see what is on sale and what sounds good to you.  It was the flavor of the sauce and subsequent gravy that made this recipe a keeper for our family.
