Slow Cooker Brisket is the delicious and easy. Get all of the delicious flavor of your favorite smoked beef brisket made in your slow cooker!
I love using my slow cooker on Mondays. We love a good beef brisket at our house and cooking it in the slow cooker is the perfect way to do it. Brisket likes to cook long and low so the slow cooker is the perfect tool.
Before putting it in the crockpot, cover your brisket with a rub of onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin and Worcestershire sauce. Then I add a sauce made with beef broth, chili sauce, and liquid smoke. I love the flavor that liquid smoke gives the meat. Tastes just like you smoked your brisket, but instead of the hassle of a smoker, you did it in the crockpot!
But the brisket in the slow cooker and let that baby cook away. You will know when the slow cooker brisket is done because the meat will be fork tender. No knife needed!
Serve the brisket as is and just spoon some of the pan juices over the top. Or you can serve it Texas style with your favorite BBQ sauce over the top. My favorite BBQ sauce is Sweet Baby Rays Original.
Just spoon on as much of that BBQ sauce as you want! The more the better as far as I’m concerned.
I like to serve BBQ brisket with some homemade corn bread. If you are a potato eater it is great served with mashed potatoes too. Or you can serve it on a bun with a little cole slaw for the perfect brisket sandwich. It’s good anyway you slice and serve it!
