Melt in Your Mouth Brisket

Brisket is one of those cuts of beef that really can benefit from a long cooking time. Slowly melting away the connective tissue within the meat takes time and can turn a chewy cut of beef to one that melts in your mouth.

Texas-Style Beef Brisket

Prep Time: 25 min | Cook Time: 390 min


3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 bay leaves
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional
1 fresh beef brisket (6 pounds)
1/2 cup beef broth
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard


1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, bay leaves, garlic, celery salt, pepper and, if desired, liquid smoke. Cut brisket in half; add to bag. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight.

2. Transfer beef to a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker; add broth. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until tender.

3. For sauce, in a small saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the remaining ingredients; heat through.

4. Remove brisket from the slow cooker; discard bay leaves. Place 1 cup cooking juices in a measuring cup; skim fat. Add to the barbecue sauce. Discard remaining juices.

5. Return brisket to the slow cooker; top with sauce mixture. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Thinly slice beef across the grain; serve with sauce. Yield: 12 servings.
