Things You'll Need:

  • 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker
  • small saucepan
  • ladle
  • a bowl


  • (1) 2 1/2 pound fresh beef brisket
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 6 ounces water
  • 2 ounces Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp instant beef bouillon granules

  • 2 tbsp packed brown sugar

  2. Trim the fat off of the beef brisket, and if needed cut the meat so that it will fit into your slow cooker.

      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.
