Slow Cooker Beef Brisket

Tender, juicy and delicious Beef Brisket cooked in a sauce for ten hours in the slow cooker. I shredded the leftover brisket, added BBQ sauce and made BBQ beef sandwiches for the following day. Who doesnโ€™t love two different meals out of one brisket?

Adapted from a fellow blogger, if this was you please let me know so I can give you credit.

Place the brisket into your slow cooker,

I had to cut the end off of

mine to make it fit.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in

a bowl, stir to combine then pour

it over the brisket.

Cook on low for 10 hours, remove

the brisket to a cutting board.

Slice the Brisket and serve.

If you have leftovers, shred

the brisket in a bowl.

Add your favorite BBQ sauce and stir.

Cover and refrigerate overnight, warm

in a pan and make BBQ beef

sandwiches and serve.

  1. Nothing like a slow-cooking brisket. That smell starts slow, builds appropriately, and is a perfect accompaniment when finally going to retrieve it for eating. I love it any time of year, but especially in the Fall and Winter months.

    • Thank you the house smelled wonderful. In the past, when I prepared it, it was time consuming yet delicious. It took constant attention where as this recipe was so easy, delicious and turned out perfect.

  2. ๐Ÿ’œ Now that’s We’re talking about EveryOne; so, Ladies, understand this…the way to a Partners Heart is Their Stomach; a Gent is only Good at Preparing Meals if They ARE a Cook or a Chef EveryBody and that Population is FEW!!!


  3. Beef is my favourite meat and I love it in all forms – but a slow cooked brisket is one of my favourite ways of preparing beef. Sounds very delicious!

  4. Sadly that wasn’t me, Diane but I do cook my brisket in my slow it’s delicious and always some leftovers to shred..I do pork hip or shoulder the same way too ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Ah! English Hereford beef how I miss it.Here in Europe cant graze sheep or beef cattle and Angus not heard of over here.Winters too hard for cattle .Angus wold survive but again how to get cattle over here .I have the land for two breeders and skill to care for them as born on farm left aged 21 to serve in army . Then degree took me into law . So if it was even possible Id ship Black Angus here. Maybe, Herdwick sheep too

  6. My mouth is watering. This looks SO GOOD,

    I’ve never tried brisket in the slow cooker, but it sounds like the perfect way to do it because the brisket shouldn’t dry out. I’m definitely giving this a go!
