  • (1) 2 1/2 pound fresh beef brisket
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 6 ounces water

      Recently came across the brisket recipe and wanted to make it tomorrow, but the recipe left out the catsup measurement. I'm sure I can wing it if I have to. Anybody know?????

      This is the best beef brisket crockpot recipe ever! The meat comes out so tender and juicy. I'll never cook a beef brisket in the oven again. The beef cooks much better in the slow cooker.

      That is one handsome piece of beef. I was looking for the beef brisket recipe that I saw on the Food Network, and came across your slow cooker beef brisket recipe. The photo of your beef brisket cooked in a crockpot has my mouth watering.
