Last Sunday we decided to dig out the slow cooker again and what a good job we did. Slow cooked Brisket is a revelation. So tender and juicy yet full of flavour and the gravy is just out of this world.
For this super simple dish we took one joint of Brisket about 2.5lb in weight and sat it on a bed of chopped red onions, a couple of crushed garlic cloves and a couple of sprinkled beef oxo cubes. Added a few cups of boiling water and turned it on low power then left if for the day to do its business. Cooking time was a round ten hours on the low power setting and the beef was falling apart when touched with a fork.
We served the Brisket with a sweet potato, butter and mixed herb mash and green beans all smothered in the rich onion and garlic gravy.
This is such a simple dish to prepare and well worth the wait. Preparing the beef and putting it in the slow cooker at breakfast time meant that it was cooked to perfection by the time we were ready for dinner. The aromas that filled the boat were teasing us all day long but boy was it worth the wait.
