Boone's Dr. Peppercorned Beef

READY IN: 10hrs 30mins
YIELD: 1 Briscuit




  • Over medium-high heat, brown brisket on all sides in large, oiled skillet. Cut parsnips into 2 inch pieces, cut the sweet potatoes into quarters, and roughly chop the half onion. Place parsnips, onion and potatoes in the bottom of your slow cooker. Add the browned brisket on top of veggies. Combine ground peppercorns, rosemary, and thyme, then rub into beef. Pour Dr. Pepper and Dale's around the brisket, cover, and cook on HIGH for 2 hours (until simmering), then on LOW for 7-9 hours.
  • Alternatively, if you want to sleep/work through the entire cooking process, just cook on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours, MEDIUM for 7-8 hours (if your slow cooker has this setting), or on LOW for 9 to 10 hours (Recommended!). Add/subtract time as necessary. You may also want to save parsnips to add with about 1 to 2 hours remaining because they will get mushy after a long time in the pot, but some people prefer to eat them like potatoes anyway, so this is really a matter of preference. They were delicious with all the juices cooked into them, and were still solid enough to be picked up by a knife.
