"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Per each 5-6lbs of meat

2 onions, sliced
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
16oz can Hunts Tomato Sauce
16oz can whole berry cranberry sauce
1 cup water
1/2 cup kosher grape wine (or juice)
1 1/2 tablespoon white horseradish
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
pinch pepper
garlic powder

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Put brisket in a pan and sprinkle the meat with garlic powder. Then pour the mixture over it. Seal the pan tight with two layers of aluminum foil.

Cook at 450 degress for 2 hours. Check after 1 1/2 hours and then cook for 30 minutes more.

Slice when cool. Put the slices into a smaller pan or casserole dish. Cover completely with sauce to freeze.

When defrosting, take out of the freezer and place in the refrigerator. While it is defrosting, use a fork to seperate the pieces and make it easier to reheat.

Reheat the meat at 450 degrees for 30 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Make sure to double or triple the recipe so that you are sure to have enough "juice" to cover the meat while cooking.

If the brisket is a little tough, the longer you cook it when reheating, the more tender it becomes.
