Crockpot Beef Brisket Sandwiches with Au Jus

I must admit this recipe surprised me.  I have never cooked a beef brisket in a crockpot, until this recipe.  I promise it is well worth any doubt you may have.

beef brisket


3-5 lb. Beef Brisket

2 T Bacon Grease (can use butter)

2 T Worcestershire Sauce

Seasoning Salt

3 C Vegetable Broth (can use Beef, I find better flavor with veggie)

1/2 Large Yellow Onion, sliced

3 Cloves Minced Garlic

1 T Italian Seasoning

Salt to taste


Onion Rolls (and bun or sub roll will work) use GF if needed

1/2 Yellow Onion, sliced thin

1 medium Green Bell Pepper, sliced thin

1 Medium Yellow/Orange Bell Pepper, sliced thin

1 Clove Minced Garlic

1 T Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

Thin Sliced Provolone Cheese


-In large skillet over medium heat, melt bacon grease, add in Worcestershire sauce, season both sides of meat with seasoning salt.  Sear about 3 minutes per side.

-Place seared meat, veggie broth, 1/2 onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and salt (amount depends on broth) and the searing sauce in crockpot.

-Cook high 4 hours, remove from crockpot and wrap in foil for about 30 minutes.  Slice off any fat, and slice meat thin.  Set aside.

-Strain out and solids from cooking broth, you can use a cheese cloth to remove fat and grease, I think it taste better with the fat.  Pour broth in pot, add in meat and allow to sit on low for about 10 minutes prior to serving.

-In medium saucepan over medium low heat, eat olive oil, add in onion, peppers and garlic.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook until veggies are softened.

-I add a little butter on inside of buns and toast, but you don’t have to.  Place meat, a slice of provolone and some of the onion, pepper mixture on top of cheese.  Serve with some of the broth on the side.  Enjoy warm!
