Place brisket in then place remaining garlic and onion on top along with the bay leaves. Then add seasoning mixture of paprika, black pepper, turmeric, cayenne, and water and let cook overnight. When done remove brisket and bay leaves and combine corn starch and water and add to crockpot. Use a hand mixer to emulsify it. Return brisket to crockpot and let cook for an extra 30 minutes on low.
