Slow Cooker Beef Brisket

One of the best things about using the slow cooker is that you can just leave it to work its magic while you go for a day out. At the weekend it is great to be able to do just a little preparation in the morning then go out, in the knowledge that you can come home to a Sunday roast all ready for you. Read on for my recipe for slow cooker beef brisket, perfect for a Sunday dinner!

If you parboil your potatoes in the morning too, it won’t take long to make roast potatoes and vegetables to accompany the slow cooker beef brisket. Wouldn’t it be great to have a fun day out and come back to this?

This is my latest in a small series of posts with slow cooker recipes suitable for Sunday roasts. If you prefer lamb, how about leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic, or shoulder of lamb with cumin, garlic and lime?  If you like a roast gammon joint, slow cooker maple-glazed gammon would be perfect for you. Look out for a delicious pork recipe coming soon too.

Beef brisket is hard to find around these parts, so when I saw one at the store a few weeks ago I snatched it up, without really a planned recipe for it. Now I have this one and I can’t wait to defrost my brisket and give it a go! Thanks for sharing!

My family loves a beef brisket and I cook it very minimally because it is so flavorful. I love the addition of Worcestershire sauce and the added herbs…I will have to give your recipe a go. Thanks.
