Slow Cooker Sweet-and-Sour Brisket

Slow Cooker Sweet-and-Sour Brisket

INGREDIENTS

  • One 4-pound first-cut brisket
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Buttered egg noodles, for serving

DIRECTION

  1. Season the brisket with salt and pepper. In a very large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Cook the brisket over moderately high heat, turning once, until browned on both sides, about 10 minutes total. Transfer to a slow cooker.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the ketchup with the brown sugar, chicken broth, onions and 1 tablespoon of the red wine vinegar. Pour the mixture over the brisket. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, until the brisket is tender.
  3. Transfer the brisket to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes. Skim the fat from the sauce. Slice the brisket across the grain 1/4 inch thick and return the meat to the sauce. Cover and cook on high for about 1 hour, until the meat is very tender. Transfer the brisket to a warm platter. Add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of vinegar to the sauce and season with salt and pepper. Serve the brisket with the sauce and with buttered egg noodles.

NOTE:

The cooked brisket can be refrigerated in its sauce for up to 2 days before serving.
