Servings 12


  • 1 beef brisket about 3 pounds
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 large onions sliced
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


  • Season the beef brisket with smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Massage the spices into the meat for maximum flavor.
  • In your slow cooker, mix the sliced onions, bay leaves, thyme sprigs, beef stock, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir everything well.
  • Place the seasoned beef brisket into the slow cooker, ensuring it’s submerged in the liquid. Add a bit more salt to taste if you like.
  • Cover and cook on low heat for 8-10 hours until the brisket is tender and easily pulls apart. Aim for an internal temperature of 195 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Once done, carefully take the brisket out, let it rest for a few minutes, and then slice it against the grain into thin or thick slices, as you prefer.
  • Serve the tender beef brisket with the flavorful onions and a ladle of the cooking liquid.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days.


  • To Freeze: Put the brisket in a freezer-safe container. With the gravy, it stays fresh for up to two months; without the gravy, it keeps for up to three months.
  • To Reheat: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Transfer the brisket to a baking dish, cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.
  • Pro Tip: Pair the brisket with your favorite side dishes like mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, or coleslaw. Enjoy this melt-in-your-mouth beef brisket, bursting with rich flavors!
