Slow-Cooked Tender Beef Brisket Recipe

Publisher Photo
Brisket can be difficult to cook, but this recipe always turns out great. I live in the country and have a 60-mile commute to work each day, so I use the slow cooker often. It's a great way to get a good meal on the table for my family after a long day. —Jenni Arnold, Woodbury, Tennessee

I left out the green pepper only because I didn't have any on hand. My boyfriend thought this was 5 stars, but I couldn't get past that beer taste. It wasn't my favorite, but I gave it four stars as an average.

The brisket was very tender without falling apart. The pan juices are very tasty but hard to describe. Is it a barbeque sauce? a gravy?

My husband said it's just like his moms beef in Ecuador!! We made it for our Christmas party too and there was none left over!

MY REVIEW

Very good recipe. The beef brisket was WAY to expensive for me. So I substituted the Eye of Round Roast and it worked out great. I also substituted Sprite for the nonalcoholic beer. I thickened the pan juices with cornstarch and water. (1/4 cup cornstarch, plus enough water to make one cup total).
