Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Brisket

Everyone loves some good BBQ but most don’t have the time to cook it. With the help of a slow cooker you can have shredded BBQ beef brisket for dinner anytime!

Secret Recipe Club

Before I get into this delicious recipe for the Secret Recipe Club, let me first say how incredibly exciting yesterday’s soccer/futbol game between the USA and Portugal was to watch. I was beyond elated when the clock was winding down with a 2-1 USA lead, and then crushed with disbelief when Portugal tied it up at the last minute. Ahhh!! At least I had a fantastic meal in my belly to ease the pain – beef BBQ with coleslaw, baked beans and my dad’s potato salad.

For the Secret Recipe Club this month I perused the recipes on Shockingly Delicious by Dorothy. I came so close to cooking her Spicy Smoky Chicken Kale Stew but when I was planning dinner for the USA-Portugal game I wanted to make something more American. When I saw the recipe for slow cooker BBQ brisket it was the clear winner. I may be living in the heart of pork BBQ for the past 7 years but I still have a sweet spot for beef.

Her recipe did not include the pop (or soda depending on where you are from) but in my experience with slow cookers it is beneficial to have some liquid in which to be cooked. There may have been enough juice from the meat and the onions but either way the beef came out perfectly. I have made slow cooker pulled pork in the past but this was the first time an onion was thrown in the mix and it added such great flavor to the meat. My parents enjoyed it so much that they plan on including it in their normal dinner rotation!

Check out some of Dorothy’s other recipes on her blog, Shockingly Delicious. I also bookmarked the Falafel Burgers and Spiced Snickerdoodles.

As for the final group matches of USA-Germany and Portugal-Ghana (to determine the fate of the USA in the World Cup), unfortunately I will not be able to watch either of the two games live so I will be disconnecting myself from social media as much as possible until I get home in order to watch the DVR. Go Team USA!

  1. Spray the inside of the slow cooker with nonstick spray. Spread the onion slices evenly on the bottom, lay the beef on top, and pour the pop over the beef. Set on high and and cook for 4-6 hours, or until cooked.
