My most favorite thing to order at a bbq joint is beef brisket. It is always amazing. I love those tender slices of beef topped with a sweet tangy bbq sauce. It makes me one happy girl. Well, I recently decided to try an at home version made for slow cooker BBQ brisket.
In a bowl, you combine the chili powder, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and cumin together to make a paste. This paste gets spread all over the brisket before you place it in the slow cooker. Once it’s in the slow cooker, you’ll sprinkle some pepper over it and top it with some diced onion.
Then you are going to mix some garlic, beef broth, liquid smoke, and chili sauce together. This is then poured over the brisket. Now it’s slow and low time. This cooks in the slow cooker for 7-8 on low.
Once it’s cooked, you want to take all of those cooking juice and add them to a sauce pan. You’ll want to thicken the juices with a cornstarch slurry. Then it will turn into a tasty sauce to serve with the brisket.
I must say it was almost as good as what I get at those tasty bbq restaurants. The seasoning is perfect and the cooking juices to make a tasty sauce. If you love brisket like I do, then give this recipe a try!
