Delicious and different brisket recipe that I make to go along with turkey at thanksgiving, my family always raves about it. The cranberries add such a nice tart flavor that helps cut through the richness of the meat

Dragonlady: you could use any hearty cut of red meat that would stand up to a long, slow braise. Chuck would probably work well.

My local supermarkets only have briskets cut on the flat. Is there another roast cut I can use for this recipe?
