I made the recipe as written. It's definitely a Sunday or weekend dinner because of the time. It was delicious! The meat was very tender and the sauce was great. The olives and the tomatoes gave it a wonderful flavor. I had it with leftover egg noodles the first night and leftover cauliflower puree the next time. It was great with both sides.

Fantastic recipe! This came out wonderfully. Used leftovers to make soft tacos the following day.

This was so good. We made it on Sunday for a busy Monday evening. This would be a great meal for a special occasion. We made it following the recipe exactly. We had pasta with light margarine, mixed vegetables, and salad. We will definitely be making this again.

This is excellent and absolutely company worthy. I have been searching for a good brisket recipe that isn't covered in barbeque sauce. This is perfect. The only extra I added was crushed garlic to the sauteing onions. Exceptional and highly recommended.

We made this in a slow cooker and it was excellent! We cooked about 6 hours on low, then added the tomatoes and olives and cooked another couple hours before slicing and cooking for the final half hour. We increased the water to 1 cup just to ensure it didn't get too dry. My only addition would be a little garlic with the meat and onion. Will definitely make again.
