Slow-Cooker Brisket with Smoked Paprika
Save time and oven space and use a slow-cooker for brisket that's tender when pierced, with a rich, velvety sauce. Start in the morning and you'll have brisket by dinnertime.
Wine pairing: A structured red like Louis M. Martini 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley; $35), with ripe, spicy fruit that punches up the smoked paprika. --Sara Schneider
