Tender Beef Brisket

"A touch of sugar mellows the flavorful sauce that's drizzled over this brisket. 'The original recipe came to me from a friend,' says Sondra Morrow, Mesa, Arizona. 'I revised it for the slow cooker.'"

  1. Place the brisket in a 3-qt. slow cooker. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over brisket. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until tender.
  2. Remove the beef; set aside. Pour the sauce into a saucepan; cook, uncovered, over low heat for 13-15 minutes or until reduced and thickened, stirring occasionally. Slice the meat across the grain; serve with sauce.

Footnotes

  • This is a fresh beef brisket, not corned beef. The meat comes from the first cut of the brisket.

This was the first time I've ever made beef brisket. We're following a low-carb food plan, so I substituted with a low-carb ketchup and splenda instead of regular ketchup and sugar. It was ver...

This was very good and easy to make. My husband especially liked the flavor. I did not do the reduction, as the sauce kind of just cooked into the meat. The remaining liquid I used as an au jous.

While this was very TASTY, it wasn't the TENDEREST brisket I've ever made. I used brown sugar instead of white, and I threw in a dozen or so baby Red Bliss potatoes; they soaked up the flavor of...

I make this recipe once a week and almost as is. I use hot horseradish and double the amount. It's really yummy with garlic breadsticks.

I have made beef briskets for years. This was the best yet. Thank you for making Chistmas Eve a huge success. All of my guests were raving.
