Slow Cooked Brisket and Onions

Level: Medium
Serves: 12
Cook for: 8 hours
1 tablespoon olive oil
700g onions (about 2 large onions) sliced into chunks
1.5 kilos beef brisket
Salt and pepper
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups of beef broth
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce


1. Heat a deep sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat with the olive oil. Add the onions and cook on medium-low to medium heat, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes or until the onions have caramelized lightly.

2. While the onions are cooking, take the brisket out of its packaging and pat it dry. Season the meat generously with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sear the brisket until a golden brown crust appears on both sides of the meat. Remove and place in a slow-cooker insert, fatty side up.

3. Sprinkle the minced garlic over the meat. When the onions are lightly browned, pile them on top and around the meat. Mix the broth, Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce, and pour into the slow-cooker insert.

4. Cover and cook in the slow cooker on low for 6 to 8 hours or until the brisket is very tender. Let rest for at least 20 minutes before serving.

5. The brisket can be sliced or shredded immediately and served with the onions and juices.
