  1. Do not border about marinating the beef, the slow cooker process
    will provide time for the beef to marinade.
  2. Do not border to add in water, the beef is going to ooze out enough
    juice for the cooking process.
  3. Cooking time will depend on the size of the brisket, check beef 1
    hour to stop time to determine if it requires more time.
  4. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
