Classic Brisket- Low Carb Crock Pot Version

This is one of the best briskets I have ever made. The cooking time does not reflect the overnight marinating. I want to add that I have made this in the oven for the holidays this year, 2 weeks in a row by request, and I just tripled the sauce ingredients, used the same marinade and brisket. I roasted it for 2 1/2 hrs at 350, they were wonderful as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. the day before make the marinade.
  2. pour it into a 1 gallon plastic bag, add brisket and marinate overnight, refrigerated, turning over occasionally.
  3. remove brisket from the marinade and discard.

  5. add onion slices and brisket.
  6. turn brisket over in sauce to coat both sides and place it fat side up.
  7. cook on low for 8 hours.
  8. remove and let it rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain.
  9. add back to sauce to coat.
  10. serve.

Delicious! I used a beer called Pumpkin Ale, which I have been told has a pumpkin taste (I don't drink beer) and I think it gave the sauce a nice flavor. I marinated brisket about 24 hours. I did forget to pick up tomato paste so used ketchup and left out cider vinegar, since ketchup has that in it. I will be making this again, and will remember the tomato paste! Thanks for posting this. It will be a good recipe for use in the motorhome!

Wonderful! I used more tomato paste for a thicker sauce.

Hi Chia, This was indeed one of the best "Brisket of Beef" meals I have eaten! I marinated the beef for about 20 hours. I used concentrated tube Tomato Paste (2 Tablespoons)along with the other ingredients. The sauce had a garlicy & tomato taste! Good point to dip the beef slices in the sauce just prior to serving. This meal is very easy to make in a crock pot and I highly recommend this 5 star recipe to all. Skipper/Sy
