With sunny days on the way, along with it the many activities that we participate in outside – like soccer, baseball, swimming, etc. So if you are like me, and you are looking for some easy dinner recipes, you are in the right place. This slow cooker Balsamic Brisket, aside from being juicy and tender, is also easy to make by just adding all of the ingredients in your crockpot!
A while back we traveled to Texas – sometimes known as the BBQ capital of the world. We were visiting some friends and had the chance to visit a few good restaurants, and we fell in love with the brisket at one of the BBQ places that was called “Cooper’s.” This restaurant has won many awards for its food, and believe me, they are well deserved! Just thinking about the food that we ate there just makes my mouth water!!!
Unfortunately, we are pretty far from Texas, and we can’t go as often as we would like to go just for the BBQ. So, I set out to make my own good brisket recipe and after a little bit of experimenting, I came up with this recipe and it is de-lic-ious! This may not be the same as what you can get in Texas, but I bet that you won’t be able to stop eating it!
My husband was excited when I told him what I was making, because he loves a good brisket, and he was really impressed after giving this a try. He worked in Texas for a couple of summers, so he had a chance to try many different versions of brisket, and he said that this definitely is comparable. The great thing is that you can make it using your slow cooker, so you don’t have a lot of steps to follow. Next time that you are thinking of something to make for a get together or for a pot luck, give this recipe a try.
It has a great combination of spices, beef broth, and balsamic vinegar – which makes a perfect mix of flavors. All you have to do is put all of the ingredients into your slow cooker and let the flavors cook together with the meet to make it juice and tender. All while you are doing everything else that you need to do around the house!
Don’t miss out on this one … it is great to eat on burritos, quesadillas, hamburgers, tostadas, or just by itself!
