- 1 fresh beef brisket (4 to 5 pounds)
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1-1/2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
- 1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 12 kaiser rolls, split
- Cut brisket in half; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the water, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, garlic, bouillon, chili powder, mustard, cayenne and garlic salt. Cover and refrigerate 1/2 cup mixture for sauce; pour remaining mixture over beef. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender.
- Remove beef; cool slightly. Skim fat from cooking juices. Shred meat with two forks and return to the slow cooker; heat through.
- In a small saucepan, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, butter, pepper sauce and reserved water mixture. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Using a slotted spoon, place beef on rolls; drizzle with sauce. Yield: 12 servings.

Reviews for Pulled Brisket Sandwiches
"I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious, family loved it, and I DID have every ingredient in my pantry but the brisket! The recipe made plenty and leftovers froze well for a really easy future meal. This recipe is a keeper."
"Tasty recipe. Turned the brisket halfway though the cook time to keep both sides moist. Also doubled the sauce as written only about 1 1/2T per sandwich. Everyone likes more sauce here! Good for feeding a bunch of kids and adults too."
"This smelled divine while it was cooking, and tasted amazing! Easiest pulled beef I've ever made!"
