  • 1 fresh beef brisket (3 to 4 pounds), cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/4 cups julienned carrots
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 cup unsalted peanuts, optional
  • Hot cooked rice


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown brisket on both sides in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Transfer meat and drippings to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, pepper flakes and pepper; pour over brisket. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove brisket and keep warm. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into cooking juices. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes or until thickened. Meanwhile, in a large skillet or wok, stir-fry the carrots, peppers and onions in remaining olive oil until crisp-tender. Add peanuts if desired. Stir cooking juices and stir into vegetable mixture.
  3. Thinly slice meat across the grain. Place rice on a large serving platter; top with meat and vegetable mixture.
