Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Brisket

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Brisket recipe

L’shana tova! Happiest of new years to you! A little late to this rosh hashanah party, but that seems to be my life these days. My apologies! I still wish you a sweet and happy new year.

Not the prettiest dish I have ever served, but incredibly delicious and tender. And the perfect balance of salty and sweet. I love brisket and don’t make it enough. And I don’t know why, it’s so easy. Sure, it takes a long time to make – but it is hands off time. You do need to start this the morning before you want to serve it. Which makes it perfect to get it going while you are making dinner one night, (a little bit extra work is just fine with me, especially when I know that it means nothing to do for dinner the next night) and finish it up when you are ready to serve it. I like to serve this with roasted potatoes and some greens.

Transfer the brisket and all of the juices to a large baking dish (I kept mine in the insert). Chill overnight. An hour before you are ready to serve, preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Scrape off any fat that has solidified.

    It is PERFECT for a slow cooker. Brisket is a low and slow dish. 🙂

    Looks incredible Bree! Brisket always seemed a little intimidating to me, so I’m definitely going to have to try this! Hope you had a great weekend 🙂

    Do you have to freeze the brisket overnight, or can you serve it same day?

    I don’t recommend it. The fat needs to solidify and be removed or it will be really fatty.
