Making this classic dish is easy with our prepared sauce, which is based on a traditional home-style scratch recipe. Simply combine with beef brisket and braise in a slow cooker or Dutch oven.

  • Made with all-natural ingredients including vine-ripened tomatoes, tangy apple cider vinegar and a medley of fragrant spices.
  • Ingredients are slow-simmered for hours to achieve the rich flavor of the home-cooked original.
  • Simply combine the sauce with beef brisket in a slow cooker or Dutch oven, then braise until flavorful and fork-tender.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad they started making again. Absolutely best This was one of our favorite slow cooker sauces. They didn't make it for a year or two. Noticed it again last week so I got a few jars. We made it again and I am happy to say it has not changed. We love the sweet and tangy flavor. Better and more flavorful than regular pot roast. We have made leftovers into a great soup as well. Highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right WM got this starter just right. Tastes like grandma's. Just add carrots and mashed or parsley potatoes.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too sweet!!! I was really looking forward to this Brisket starter sauce. The preparation was easy. I added carrots, small yukon gold potatoes and French green beans. Concerned whether there was enough cooking time I let it go for six hours. The brisket came out great. Succulent. But this sauce is terribly sweet. Looking at the ingredients I realized why. It contains brown sugar, apple vinegar and cola extract. The sauce ruined an otherwise perfect meal and would never recommend this to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite brisket recipe I came across The Brisket Starter 2 years ago and I can't imagine making brisket without it. It's fabulous. Everyone in my family said that these were the best briskets I ever made. I'm heading over to Williams Sonoma after I write this to buy more.
