Slow-Cooker Coffee-Braised Brisket With Potatoes and Carrots (5 - 6 qt)

This well-priced cut of meat does best when cooked low and slow. Don’t try to make it on the high setting of a slow cooker or it may end up chewy and stringy. Recipe by Vanessa Seder, January 2011. From the Real Simple website: http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/coffee-braisedbrisketwithpotatoesandcarrots-00000000049743/index.html.
