Slow Cooker Beef Brisket

Beef Brisket can be prepared many ways – there’s smoked beef brisket, oven beef brisket but I’m telling you this Slow Cooker Beef Brisket recipe is my favorite method for juicy, flavor exploding beef brisket!  And it’s SO EASY!  It’s the ultimate stress free company dinner because it can be made days in advance then reheated in the slow cooker for stress free entertaining (which is actually my preferred method)! 
I have been giddily waiting to share this Beef Brisket Slow Cooker Recipe with you because it is Christmas worthy!!  I truly love this Beef Brisket Recipe more than my crazy popular Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches, Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs, Slow Cooker Carnitas, etc.  I know that is a bold statement, but this brisket is boldly delicious.

As Patrick and I stood around devouring this meat the second after I finished photographing, effusive oohs and ahhs was all that could be uttered until we couldn’t stuff our faces any more. So if you have never made beef brisket or never made slow cooker beef brisket, prepare for your mind to be blown with this easy method for crazy tender, juicy beef brisket every single time.
Beef brisket boasts the richest natural flavor of any cut of meat and is my choice meat whenever I dine at any barbecue restaurant.  The flavor comes in part from the extra long cooking time required to break down the fibers of the meat as brisket comes from the front breastbone of the cow so there is a lot of connective tissue and muscle that supports much of the weight of the cow.
