Brisket (the breast or lower chest of the steer) is a cut that requires a long cooking time, but it yields a tender, tasty reward. It’s no wonder that brisket makes a classic tailgating dish that’s perfectly suited for Super Bowl Sunday. But good as a smoked brisket is, it can require lots of attention and time, so try making this dish in your slow cooker instead. Start the night before or early Sunday morning.



  • 2 lb Lean Brisket
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 5 second Olive Oil Spray Made with 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 medium White Onion
  • 4 clove garlic
  • 5 cups Beef Broth, Low Sodium
  • 4 tbsp Whole Grain Mustard
  • 2 tbsp Horseradish, Fresh Ground
  • 1/4 cup Parsley, Raw


1 Pat brisket dry, then season with salt and pepper.
2 If your slow-cooker has a saute setting, use it. When beads of water sizzle, spray the entire surface of the bottom with olive oil (or use a paper towel to spread just enough over the surface to coat). Sear both sides of the meat (about 4 minutes each), then remove.
3 Add onions and garlic to slow cooker.
4 Mix broth, mustard and horseradish. When completely combined, use it to deglaze the bottom of the slow cooker.
5 Add brisket, cover, turn on the slow-cooker and cook for 8 hours on low or 5-6 hours on high.
6 Remove brisket and reserve. If there’s more than 4 cups of cooking liquid, reduce it to about that amount.
7 Slice brisket against the grain, portion in 8 servings, ladle sauce over the meat, garnish with parsley and serve.
