1/2- to 4-pound fresh beef brisket (not corned beef), trimmed of fat
package (7 ounces) mixed dried fruit
carton (32 ounces) Progresso™ beef flavored broth
to 6 tablespoons Gold Medal™ Wondra® quick-mixing flour
Place all ingredients except flour in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, cutting beef to fit if necessary.
Cover and cook on Low heat setting 9 to 10 hours.
Remove beef to warm platter; cover with aluminum foil. Increase heat setting to High. Beat flour into hot cooking liquid, using wire whisk. Cover and cook 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thickened. Cut beef into 8 portions; serve with sauce.
Serve steamed rice and fresh green beans with this savory dinner.
Vary the flavors of this dish by using different dried fruits. Using all apricots gives a sweeter flavor to the meat. Dried apples with a 2-inch stick of cinnamon will give a sweet, tangy fall flavor to the recipe.
Beef brisket is from the breast section under the first ribs. It is usually sold boneless. Brisket requires long, slow cooking to tenderize it and bring out the flavor.
