Brisket in a Crock Pot

       Being in Texas one of my favorite treats to have happens to be brisket. I love good smoked seasoned brisket, love it with or with out sauce, on a sandwich or by itself. I have tried to smoke one before and ruined it, I have tried them in the oven low and slow, and I have done them in the crock pot. This is what we had for dinner; and was it yummy! I took a small trimmed brisket wrapped in foil with a little liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, kosher salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder; then cooked it on high for 5 hours. Did NOT NEED sauce, it was so delish! Severed that with a delish salad with lettuce, avocado, pine nuts, and dressing (The roasted garlic Parmesan one from Paul Newman) as well as some boiled new potatoes with parsley butter. The whole dinner was yummy, and the hubs enjoyed it too. Sorry no pictures but know it tasted yummy, and the left over brisket may figure out a burrito filling or a sandwich with it for this week at work. Yummm.
       Side note I try to hit the gym 4 to 5 times a week, twice with my trainer, I have missed a trainer session this week because I have felt like crap. I am still feeling pretty bad but may try to get an hour in at the gym tonight.


  1. Did you have the foil around the meat in the crock pot? Sounds delish!

  2. Jen, yes I wrapped up the brisket in foil and sealed it up pretty tightly.
