I’m delighted to be hosting The Slow Cooked Challenge for the first time this month. I am partnering with Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchen to bring you Janice’s well-established blogging challenge and linky for slow cooked dishes, whether cooked in a slow cooker or using slow cooking methods in conventional ovens. I’ve been taking part in the challenge for quite a while now, and was so pleased when Janice invited me to host with her. If you saw last month’s challenge which Janice hosted, you will have seen her delicious recipe for a spicy tomato pork tenderloin, as well as the September entries, which were a lovely array of slow cooked recipes.
Slow Cooker Yellow Chilli Brisket
The recipe I have put together here could be just what you need if you are looking for a warming dish for autumn and winter. Slow cooked brisket, tender and falling to shreds, mixes with yellow chillies, amarillo chilli sauce and taco beans to create delicious flavours reminiscent of South America.
- 850 g beef brisket
- 1 rich beef stockpot
- 200 ml hot water from the kettle
- 3-4 capfuls amarillo chilli sauce (I used Encona)
- 1 handful of mild pickled yellow chillies (sold in a jar)
- 3/4 of a 400 g tin of taco beans in spicy tomato sauce
- 4 tbsp tomato purée
- First, sear the brisket on all sides in a hot pan, then place it in your slow cooker. Add the beef stockpot and hot water and cook on high for 4-5 hours, until tender.
- After the 4-5 hours, remove the brisket from the slow cooker and place it on a large plate. Shred the meat using two forks.
- Remove half of the beef stock from the slow cooker and place the shredded brisket back in.
- Add the Amarillo chilli sauce, the yellow chillies, the taco beans in spicy tomato sauce and the tomato purée. Combine and cook on high for 1 hour.
- Serve garnished with fresh herbs, with boiled rice and flatbreads.
