Pot Roast Brisket is an amazing, flavorful roast to be savored by the whole family. Simply delicious. To turn the brisket over without splashing burning yourself, use 2 large kitchen forks, or a fork and a wooden spoon. Make sure you have a firm grip on the joint before you lift it; if it slips back into the pan the hot stock will splash dangerously.
