Slow Cooker Beef Brisket with Barbecue Sauce

This past Sunday, how wonderful it was entering the house after church greeted by the aroma coming from the kitchen. A delicious meal awaited our hungry family.

If I were planning to serve the barbecue brisket for a weeknight supper, I would begin it in the morning.  Since we eat earlier on Sunday, I turned the slow cooking on the before going to bed the night before and it cooked slowly through the night. Just before we left for church, I turned the slow cooker from low to warm to hold it until we returned home.

All that was left was to cook the sauce a few minutes and slice the meat.  Yummy served with macaroni salad and potato chips

3/4 cup water
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 tsp. instant beef bouillon granules
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 2-1/2-lb. fresh beef brisket (not corned)
1/2 cup catsup
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch

8 rolls (6- to 8-inch), split and toasted, buns or bread

In a small bowl combine the water, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, bouillon granules, chili powder, mustard, pepper, and minced garlic. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture for the barbecue sauce. Trim any excess fat from the brisket. If necessary, cut the brisket to fit into a 3-1/2- or 4-quart crockery cooker.

Place brisket in slow cooker. Pour the remaining Worcestershire sauce mixture over meat. Cover and cook brisket on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours. (I always use the low setting)

For sauce, in a small saucepan combine the reserved sauce mixture, catsup, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Cook mixture over medium-high heat till thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. To serve, remove meat from cooker; discard cooking liquid. Thinly slice meat diagonally across grain. Serve meat on toasted rolls. Pass the sauce. 

Makes 8 servings

Yummy yum yum. No room for a bread machine, guess I could find a recipe for baking conventional way. I love the idea of baking them in a bundt pan. Macaroni salad looks fabulous, too.

This looks seriously delicious, Lorraine! Slow-cooked brisket is a favorite. The BBQ sauce makes it even more delicious and perfect for summer.
