Crock Pot Brisket Recipe
This recipe for crock pot brisket is very easy to make. The meat comes out very tender and almost ready to fall apart. It's one of my family's favorite meals and I know it will become a favorite in your house too.
My son, Michael, loves this recipe. I love making brisket when he's home on breaks from college. Another reason why I enjoy making it is because it was my sister-in-law, Beth's, recipe.
Beth first made this recipe for us years ago when we were visiting and we all absolutely loved it. I asked her many times for the recipe but she kept ignoring me saying it was a "family secret." After many years of begging her for the recipe, she finally gave it to me and I'm happy to share it with you all today.
Beth's Brisket Recipe
This recipe means so much to me now that Beth is gone. You can read about my sister-in-law's sudden death here. Beth made the recipe in the oven, and usually the day before she needed to serve it. This was the recipe she always made for all the Jewish holidays their family celebrated.
How to Make Crock Pot Brisket
- 3 lb. fresh beef brisket (not corned beef)
- 1 tbsp fresh garlic
- 1 small jar Heinz chili sauce
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- Seasoning salt
Spray the inside of your crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Then place the brisket in the bottom of your crock pot. Sprinkle the seasoning salt on top of the brisket.
Combine together the garlic, jar of chili sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl. Pour the chili sauce mixture on top of the brisket.
Add the beef bouillon cubes along with the water. Cover and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or until the meat is tender and starts to fall apart.
How to Make the Sauce
I like to thicken the liquid that the brisket cooked in and make a sauce to serve with the brisket. It's not really a traditional gravy, more like a thick barbecue/chili sauce that tastes delicious served over the brisket slices.
- Once the brisket is done cooking, remove it to a cutting board and cover with aluminum foil to rest while you prepare the sauce.
- Pour the liquid from the crock pot through a fine sieve that's placed over a bowl.
- Then place the liquid in a saucepan on the stove and bring it to a boil.
- Continue boiling until the liquid is reduced and thickened; about five minutes.
- You'll have a lovely thick sauce to serve over the brisket.
