I tried a different marinade from the new WW Points Plus cookbook with my brisket. I needed:

1 cup white wine
1/4 cup brown sugar
bay leaves

Mix them together:

Pour the marinade into a ziploc bag with the brisket and let it sit for 8 hours or overnight. I then sliced an onion:

Then placed the meat into the crockpot with some beef stock:

Until it was done (10-12 hours on low 4-6 on high... I prefer "low and slow" for 12 hours otherwise meat tends to be a bit tough):

The marinade itself is 13 points plus which you can divide out over the number of servings. About 3 oz of brisket is 9 points plus, so figure about 12 points for 3 oz. The marinade was OK, but I think I'll stick with my usual "clean out the fridge" method in the future. Next time I make it, I'll post it. In the meantime, brisket with some garlic mashed potatoes and green peas was a nice meal on a cold winter night.
