A friend tried this recipe and liked it, so I thought I would try it, too. When my husband told me how much he liked it, I knew I'd be making it often. —Vivian Warner, Elkhart, Kansas

6 ounces cooked beef with 1/4 cup sauce equals 381 calories, 12 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 96 mg cholesterol, 548 mg sodium, 18 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 47 g protein.

Directions

  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.

  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.

  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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 28, 2014

I have wanted to make this recipe for a long time, so when my sister was visiting we thought let's give it a go! Anyways, neither of us read the recipe properly, and just made the barbeque sauce and put the meat in it in the slow cooker and cooked it for 4 hours on high. It was absolutely awesome!!!! Anyways, going back to review the recipe I realized we'd made it totally wrong, and it didn't even matter!
