Beef brisket is what slow cookers were made for. When cooking a tough cut of meat like brisket, there are three things you need: low heat, moisture and plenty of time. Not only is this classic slow-cooked brisket recipe easy, it will also give you the most tender, succulent beef brisket you've ever had.
In this recipe, we use classic flavors to accompany the beef while it's cooking. First, a spice rub gives your beef the seasoning that it needs. The red wine and red wine vinegar help break down the tough cut of beef. Soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce give it a bit of extra savory flavor. And finally, you can make a gravy with the cooking liquid or simply use the cooking liquid to serve the brisket au jus.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
