A delicious brisket recipe from Long Island, New York. Slow cooked for hours until you can cut it with a fork. Buy "Flat Cut Brisket" from the butcher and make sure the chili sauce you use is sweet like Heinz or Rao's, not super spicy. The is a classic Jewish dish that's Kosher for Passover, which means it's gluten-free.
