slow cooker root beer brisket recipeDid you know that I have a brand spankin’ new Facebook page? I do. It is so cute, it hurts.

baked bree facebook pageI realized that making a Facebook fan page so-cute-that-it-hurts was above my skill set, so I did what any girl would do, I hired out. (The girls at Tarte are amazing. I highly recommend them.) I went to my Facebook page to answer a reader question, and imagine my surprise when I found this gorgeousness in place of my sad and tired old one. There she was, all pretty and organized, and best of all – MINE! I love it so much that I spend a lot more time over there. And you know what happens over there? We talk about stuff. Real conversations. About all kinds of stuff. Downton Abbey. Cool stuff around the Interwebs. You get the idea. You can view my Instagram feed (I am bakedbree if you would like to follow me). You can also see my new Baked Bree Pinterest Boards. Take a look around. There is some really fun stuff, and it is going to be changing. New things will be added and it will be updated frequently.

Yesterday on my Facebook page, I mentioned that I was in a cooking mood, and that I was busting things out of my kitchen. Before 10am, I had already made 3 things. I mentioned that I was making this root beer brisket. I got quite a few requests for the recipe. As much as I would like to, I don’t blog everything that I cook at home. In fact, I don’t even blog some of the things that I make with the intention of blogging them. But, that being said, if you ask me for a recipe, I try my hardest to give it to you. What can I say? I am a people-pleaser. And if we were not having a conversation about it on Facebook, you would not be seeing it here today, (or in such a timely manner might I add). This brisket really was delicious, and worth being shared. So, come on over. Like me. Because I really like you, and I want to get to know you better.

Tonight, I am going to shred the leftovers and make a barbecue beef sandwich. This is incredibly versatile. I have even used leftovers for crazy good tacos. It reminds me of my Passover Brisket, but less sweet.

  1. I love the idea of using root beer in recipes like this!

  2. Audrea says:

    Your slow cooker makes this root beer-spiced meal deliciously tender and easy to prepare. Bonus! You’ll have enough leftover meat for delicious sandwiches.

  3. Deborah says:

    This sounds so delicious – and easy doesn’t hurt, either!

  4. This looks fantastic! I’ve been making my dad and sister meals almost every Wednesday and a couple Mondays because my mom is always out of town for work and I find it nice to sit at the table and eat a nice dinner. And I especially love slow cooker recipes because things get way better the longer you cook them and if I put them in right before I go to school, the food is all ready for dinner :)

    And your new facebook page is absolutely wonderful and beautiful, and cute! :3

    • bakedbree says:

      That is what I like the best about it too. Makes life so much easier. This also has leftovers which taste even better the next day.

  5. Root beer and brisket = two of my favorite things! Love this!

    • bakedbree says:

      Me too Amanda! It was also crazy easy. Love starting something in the morning and coming home to a delicious meal after a crazy day.

    Looks so good-I’m going to try this. Do you have hints for slicing correctly? Thanks!!

  8. Sarah says:

    I like this idea very much. :D

  9. Teri C says:

    It’s in my crockpot right now and smells great! Had some short ribs cooked this way at a place in Missouri and they were awesome!

    • bakedbree says:

      Hope that you like it! I love short ribs, I bet this would be a great way to cook them. Thank you for the great idea!

  10. Oh my gosh. That looks glorious! What I miss most about Texas is brisket. When my parents come to pick me up from the airport, I always request that they bring me two brisket sandwiches in a dinner roll. Yours looks wonderful!

    And I love your new Facebook page. :)

  11. […] Speaking of slow cookers, how about a nice, tender brisket that simmers all day in barbecue sauce, Worcestershire, brown sugar, and … root beer?! That’s right, root beer brisket. Bet the name made you smile, didn’t it? To me, that’s the very definition of comfort food. (Baked Bree) […]

  12. Josephine says:

    Hi I am going to make this tomorrow night, it looks delicious! I was just wondering if I could add carrots and potatoes into the crock with the brisket (I am new to crock pot cooking) or would I need to add more of all the ingredients? Thanks =)

  13. Brittney says:

    Hello I was wondering why you brown the brisket first? I have cooked a brisket in the crockpot a lot and have never done that. Thanks

  14. Bonnie says:

    Looks great, but can you do it in the oven in a roaster pan, or in a pot with cover on top of the stove?

    • bakedbree says:

      Sure!

      • claudia says:

        If I do a 13.3 pound brisket in the oven…how much more of the ingredients should I go up? Also how long should it be placed in the oven, under what temp?

        • bakedbree says:

          I have never made a brisket that big, so I am just guessing here, but at least 3 times the amount of ingredients. Temp would be the same, but the cooking time will be longer. How much longer, I am not sure. Cook until it is fork tender.

  15. Kathy Knox says:

    What I thought was rootbeer was really cream soda, so fingers cross I won’t have an epic fail. I really need to wear my glasses now that my eyes are over 40!

  16. Aurora says:

    This sounds great! I am going to definitely give this recipe a shot. Any tips on making sure the brisket comes out tender and not hard to chew?

  17. Lisa says:

    I am attempting to make this for dinner, it’s in my slow cooker. I hope it comes out good. I love cooking. Thanks!

  18. Tricia says:

    What are good alternatives for a cheaper cut of beef? Could we use chuck?
