Crockpot Beef Brisket

Linda Larsen
This traditional, old fashioned recipe for Crockpot Beef Brisket cooks slowly in your slow cooker for wonderful flavor.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 9 minutes

Total Time: 24 minutes

Yield: 12 servings


  • 4 lbs. beef brisket (NOT corned)
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 carrots, cut into chunks
  • 3 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


Place onions in bottom of slow cooker, then place brisket, fat side up, on top of onions. Sprinkle garlic on top. Surround meat with carrots. Combine ketchup, vinegar, and brown sugar in small bowl and then rub into beef. Add enough water, about 1 cup, to coat the bottom of the cooker. Cover crockpot and cook on low 8-10 hours.

For gravy, remove brisket and carrots from the slow cooker, place on serving plate, and cover tightly with foil. Turn crockpot temperature to High. Mix flour with 1/2 cup water, add to crockpot, and bring to a boil, stirring frequently with wire whisk. Boil until gravy is thickened; then add Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt as needed until the flavor comes to life.

Slice meat and serve with gravy and carrots.

2nd year in a row for us, many more to come, Guest NuConcept

We came looking online for the same recipe we used last year because it was delicious. The prep is extremely simple and then it just simmers and gets yummy. This time we'll write it down and use it again without having to search. And I'm not going to wait a year this time before tasting this treat again.
