Tender Crockpot Beef Brisket


This tender crockpot beef brisket is super easy, but so tender, juicy, and delicious! It does take 8 hours on HIGH in the slow cooker, so make sure you plan ahead to give it enough time. This is a great week night or make ahead recipe, it also tastes just as great on the second day. You can make it a regular juicy and tender brisket, or add BBQ sauce to make it a BBQ brisket. I served this brisket with mashed potatoes and it was great with the brisket broth poured all over the mashed potatoes. I bought the brisket at Costco where it was not only super fresh but also cheaper then most grocery stores. So here is another easy, fast, hearty, comfort food, crockpot recipe for you!
Tender Crockpot Beef Brisket {Serves 8-10}


  • Beef Brisket (mine was 5.5 LB)
  • 3-4 TBS Mayonnaise (I use homemade)
  • 1.5 tsp Salt
  • 1.5 tsp Montreal Chicken Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1.5 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Mrs.Dash (or any salt-free seasoning)
  • 3-4 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 4 TBS Butter



1) Wash the beef brisket thoroughly and pat completely dry with a paper towel. Put the brisket in a big bowl and season it with all the seasonings (salt, chicken seasoning, onion powder, Italian seasoning, Mrs.Dash). Smother the Mayonnaise all around both sides of the brisket. Sprinkle the spices and the garlic on brisket and smother it all around both sides of the brisket. (If you are making BBQ brisket, also add 2-3 TBS BBQ sauce to the brisket and smother on both sides. This is a plain, not BBQ brisket).


2) Place brisket into a crockpot and add 4 TBS butter (cut up into pieces and spread out on the brisket). Cook brisket on HIGH for 8 hours, flipping the brisket 2-3 times or at least once halfway through cook time if possible. (If making BBQ brisket, make sure to add 3-4 TBS BBQ sauce in the last hour of slow cooking and smother it all around the brisket.)

3) After 8 hours, the brisket should be fall off the fork tender and super juicy! The broth inside the crockpot can be poured over rice or mashed potatoes. We loved the broth over mashed potatoes!
