Introduction: Crock Pot Beef Brisket
Crock pot cooking is a lot of fun and very easy to do. Throw everything in, check on it a few times, and you're good to do.
This instructable is for a one pot, pot roast style brisket. Brisket is supposed to be cooked slowly in liquids so that the meat becomes so tender it falls apart.
Step 1: Ingredients
-baby carrots (1 bag)
-2 cans beef broth
-3/4 cup water
-2-3 tbs parsley
-salt and pepper, to taste
-3 garlic cloves, minced
-3 tbs olive oil
Step 2: Meat
With your crockpot set (high at 4-6 hours, low 8hrs). Mince garlic and add to the pot along with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil.
Slice the fatty side of your brisket in a cross hatch pattern, salt and pepper both sides and then add to the crock pot.
Add parsley, beef broth and water. Dice and add onions to the pot. Let cook 2-3 hours.
Step 3: Vegetables
About 1/2 way through your cooking time, add the carrots. I quartered mine so they would cook quicker.
About an hour later I added the mushrooms and after another hour I added the potatoes.
I added the green beans during the last hour or so of cooking.
Step 4: Slice and Serve!
Remove brisket from the crock pot and let sit for a moment before slicing.
To make gravy from the liquid, remove the vegetables from the crock pot and add a small amount of water mixed with corn starch. Make sure the crock pot temp is high. Stir until the liquid begins to thicken.
