Yup, similar to other reviews - bland. Never cooked beef brisket before. You can't 'trim' beef brisket enough. Disappointed how much I had to trim and it was still fatty after cooking. Not my kind of beef. Beef was very tender due to slow cooking, just not a lot of flavor. Onions and parsnips were good.
