Tender Beef Brisket

A touch of sugar mellows the flavorful sauce that's drizzled over this brisket.


6 to 8 servings


1 fresh beef brisket (3 to 4 pounds), trimmed and cut in half*
1 cup ketchup
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon granulated (white) sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper


Place the brisket in a 3-quart slow cooker. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour over brisket. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until tender.

Remove the beef; set aside. Pour the sauce into a saucepan; cook, uncovered, over low heat for 13 to 15 minutes or until reduced and thickened, stirring occasionally. Slice the meat across the grain; serve with sauce.

Additional Information

* This is a fresh beef brisket, not corned beef.
