Do you like brisket but don’t have the time to make it on busy weekends? Or would you like to have it in the summer but using the oven or standing in the heat all day is not your idea of fun? Do I have a solution for you.
1 (3 – to 4 -lb.) beef brisket, or a size that fits inside your slow cooker
Salt and Pepper
1 2-oz envelope onion soup mix
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1 1/2 cup water
Put the brisket in the slow cooker fat side up (keeps the meat moist and will let the fat juices sink into the meat to give more flavor)
Season the beef brisket with salt and pepper
In a small bowl, dissolve the soup mix and gravy mix in the water, then pour the mixture over the brisket
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or until brisket is done.
To serve, remove brisket and place fat side up. Let rest for 10 to 15 minutes then carve it diagonally across the grain in thin slices.
