Brisket – Yet Another Way

I cook my share of brisket.

In the Grillmaster Test post, I declare that you cannot be the neighborhood Grillmaster until you can make a mean brisket on the grill. In Rollin’ With the Irish, CBH Test and Bill’s Corned Beef, brisket is made into corned beef and then put into a recipe. For a cut that needs to take quite a while to cook, it sure is versatile. Here is another great way to make it – in the slow cooker.

With some carmelized onion….yum!

I actually bought one that was 7 pounds. I cut it in half (put the other half in the freezer) and trimmed the fat off of one side. I decided to leave it on the other to flavor the pot.

The marinade.

In the bag.

After cooking.

    Yum, this looks and sounds, delicious!

    Sounds like something I’d like to try since I have all ingredients but the beef and beer on hand!

    Think I’d probably go with a little Newcastle Brown Ale though, carbs be damned.

    Man oh man does this sound good… and I haven’t used my slow cooker in ages! Seems like a good excuse to break it out.

    Brisket looks good, though I wouldn’t be concerned about carbs. Sodium yes, but not carbs – they are essential.
