Add vinegar, brown sugar, ketsup, soy sauce, pineapple juice and broth. Bring to a boil. Pour over brisket. Cover and cook

4 - 6 hours on high, or 8 - 9 hours on low, until meat is very very tender.

3 Transfer brisket to a cutting board and skim fat from surface of juices. Cut brisket across the grain in 1/4 inch-thick slices,

Arrange slices so they overlap on a large platter. Surround meat with vegetables and spoon on sauce to moisten; then serve

remaining sauce on the side

**NOTE** 3 ibs of brisket is difficult to find so be prepared to buy and use more. You'll just have some delicious leftovers!!
