Slow-Cooked Beef Brisket

Slow-Cooked Beef Brisket

Beef brisket is a light menu option when you trim and skim. Trim the brisket before popping it in the slow cooker, and skim fat from the tasty onion-tomato sauce before spooning it over the meat.

Oxmoor House OCTOBER 2006

  • Yield: 10 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces beef and about 1/3 cup sauce)
  • Cook time: 7 Hours
  • Prep time: 8 Minutes
  • Other: 30 Minutes


  • 1 (3.5-pound) flat-cut beef brisket, trimmed and cut in half
  • 1 (1.3-ounce) envelope golden onion soup mix (such as Lipton)
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 large onions, sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, undrained
  • 4 teaspoons bottled minced garlic


1. Sprinkle beef evenly with soup mix, and place in a 5-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Top beef with onion, tomatoes, and garlic. Cover and cook on HIGH 1 hour. Reduce heat to LOW, and cook 6 hours or until tender.

2. Transfer beef to a serving platter; keep warm. Let onion-tomato sauce stand 30 minutes. Skim fat from surface of onion-tomato sauce, and serve over beef.

Note: This brisket can easily be made the day ahead and reheated on the stovetop for a quick meal. Chilling the onion mixture will cause the fat to solidify, allowing you to skim it from the surface with more efficiency.
