  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds beef brisket most of the fat trimmed
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp each: parsley thyme, basil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 heaping Tablespoon flour
  • 1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can low sodium beef broth or 1 heaping tsp Better than Bouillon plus about 12 oz. warm water mixed together
  • 4 medium potatoes quartered I like yukon gold the best for this
  • 6 to 8 carrots scrubbed and cut into about 3 inch pieces
  • 1 onion sliced


Spray inside of slow cooker crock with non-stick cooking spray. Season beef on all sides and place in cooker. Sprinkle flour over the top of the meat. Pour tomatoes over top and beef broth around the sides. Add the bay leaf.

Cover and cook for about 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low.

Remove the brisket and place onion slices to the bottom of the cooker. Place the meat on top of the onions. Add the remaining vegetables around the sides and on top of the meat. Cover and cook another 2 hours or so on high or another 4 hours or so on low. When the meat pulls apart easily with a fork it's done. Remove meat and vegetables, stir juices and serve.
