While my kids were in high school, I spent a lot of time in the costume shop at the school. One of my favorite things about it was the opportunity it gave me to meet some of the other moms of my children’s friends.
It never fails, when moms get together, the conversation always makes it around to…
“So what are you having for dinner?”
I love to ask that question. I have gotten a lot of great new recipes by asking it.
Today’s recipe is one that I got that way and I originally shared with you back in March of 2009! It is so easy and delicious it totally needed a recipe redo.
One day, while in the costume shop, my friend Cindy mentioned she needed to get home to finish up dinner. I of course had to ask – “So what are you having for dinner?”
She described to me a quick, easy and yummy brisket!
This dish is so simple you really don’t need a recipe!
So here it goes:
Place your brisket in the crock-pot – mine was probably 3-4 lbs. Actually I don’t really remember….
Squirt mustard over the top – I used a Spicy Brown Mustard but Cindy used just regular old yellow mustard. I just squiggled it over the top
Mix one package of Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix with one cup of water and pour over brisket
Cook on low for 8 hours!
It is great served with mashed potatoes (or so my family tells me as I don’t eat them – texture issues!)
Per Cindy’s recommendation I shredded up the left over brisket the next night and added some barbecue sauce to make sandwiches. That was until I smelled it and realized my barbecue sauce had expired two years ago! Yuck! It went in the garbage and we had pancakes for dinner! We had the BBQ Brisket the next night after I bought some new BBQ sauce!
Now does dinner get much easier than this? Only four ingredients, three if you don’t use BBQ sauce. Pop it in the slow cooker and 8 hours later you have a delicious dinner.
- 3-4 lb. beef brisket
- spicy brown mustard or mustard of choice
- 1 pkg of Lipton Onion Soup Mix

- Place brisket in slow cooker.
- Cover top with mustard, just squirt away!
- Mix soup mix in with water and pour over brisket
