Slow-Cooked Beef Brisket Recipe.

A good brisket, cooked properly, has a rich flavor and a mouthwatering texture – it’s a powerful argument in favor of “low and slow” cooking. In this case, that doesn’t have to mean tending to the stove all day, though; with a slow cooker, you can put the meat in and then forget about it until you’re ready to dig in 8 hours later.


Slow-Cooked Beef Brisket Recipe


  • 2 lbs. beef brisket
  • 2 cups onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup beef stock
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. liquid smoke (optional)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Brown the beef brisket on all sides in a skillet placed over a high heat and place in the slow cooker.
  2. Cook the onion for one or two minutes over a medium heat in the same skillet.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients to the skillet, mix well, and heat up.
  4. Drizzle the sauce over the brisket and cook on low for 8 hours.
  5. Remove the brisket from the slow cooker. Pull the meat apart or slice against the grain. Don’t throw away the sauce left in the slow-cooker.
  6. Pour the remaining sauce into a saucepan and cook until the sauce thickens up.
  7. Serve the meat with the hot sauce.
