Sweet & Spicy Beef Brisket (4-6 servings)

  • 2-3 lbs. brisket
  • 1 c. beef stock
  • 1/2 scant c. chili garlic sauce
  • 1/2 heaping c. agave ketchup
  • 1/2 c. dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 t. liquid smoke
  • 1-2 T. evoo
  • 1 medium white onion, slices
  • 4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 t. paprika
  • 1 t. kosher salt
  • 5/8 t. ground black pepper
  • 3/4 t. garlic powder
  • 3/4 t. onion powder
  • 1/8 t. cayenne
  • 1/4 t. dried oregano
  • 1/4 t. dried thyme
  1. Heat evoo  in a large skillet on medium-high heat, and add the onions to caramelize. Add garlic and saute them until slightly softened. Add all the spices and cook until fragrant.
  2. Place the brisket in a slow cooker, and cover with cooked onion mixture. Quickly combine ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, and beef broth, and then pour over onions and brisket. Cook on LOW heat for TEN hours.
  3. Transfer the brisket and its juices to a glass baking dish to cool and then refrigerate for several hours. This will help the flavors come together.
  4. A couple hours before serving, preheat oven to 300F to reheat and further merry the brisket. Place the foil-covered brisket dish into the heated oven for about 1 hour or until the brisket has warmed through.
  5. Remove the brisket from the oven. Pour the juices into a sauce pan and reduce the sauce. Slice up the brisket, and add it to the thicken sauce. Serve with bun(s) of choice and/or a bed of potatoes :)
