Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 Pound new potatoes
  • 1 Pound carrots, cut into 2 ½ inch lengths
  • 2 1/2 Pounds beef brisket, trimmed
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 Cup brewed black coffee
  • 3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Directions

In the bottom of a 5- to 6-quart slow-cooker, combine the onion, potatoes, and carrots.

Season the beef with 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper, and place on top of the vegetables.

In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato paste, coffee, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Pour over the beef and vegetables. Cover and cook on low until the beef and vegetables are tender, 8-9 hours.

Slice the beef across the grain, serve with vegetables and sauce, and sprinkle with parsley.

Brisket Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Brisket Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
