This week I visited our new Aldi Store and found lots of great food at really good prices. One of the items I picked up was a corned beef brisket. I was anxious to see how my new food adventure was going to turn out, so I grabbed my slow cooker and got to work.
I am here to tell you, the brisket turned out great! I was able to make 2 meals out of that big boy of 4 lbs. and my guys are already asking when I can make it again. With the start of school around the corner, this brisket made into Reuben sliders is going to be at the top of my “go to” list of things that make my life easier.

- 1 onion , chopped
- 3 carrots , chopped
