Slow Cooker Brisket And Gravy

Sharing is caring!

My tried and tested Slow Cooker Brisket and gravy recipe is just the BEST! Tender delicious brisket slowly cooked in a rich thick gravy, it’s my perfect lazy Sunday dinner.

Cooking brisket in the slow cooker turns a tough cut of meat into one so tender that the meat just melts in your mouth. And let me tell you about the gravy… it’s so rich, meaty and tasty, filled with the meat juices, you’re going to want to spoon it straight into your mouth from the pan!

⭐️ It’s really easy and there’s not loads of prep. You’ll literally just need to throw the ingredients into the slow cooker and switch it on.

⭐️ This brisket is so super tender, you can just pull it apart with two forks, no need to slice.

⭐️ When I make this slow cooker brisket I use the air fryer to do roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and roasted parsnips, and the hob to just cook some frozen vegetables from the freezer and that way I can do the whole roast dinner without switching on the hob.


You’ll just need a handful of ingredients to make our delicious slow cooker brisket recipe

  • Olive Oil – this is just to lightly grease the inside of the slow cooker pan, you can use butter or sunflower oil instead.
  • Onions – choose medium brown onions for this recipe – they’ll just need peeling and roughly chopping into bite size pieces.
  • Carrots – choose small-medium carrots for this recipe. If the skins are good, then just give them a scrub and chop, otherwise peel them first.
  • Beef Brisket Joint– the beauty of brisket is it’s a cheap cut of beef – but it’s tough. So it’s ideal for long slow cooking because this way of cooking really tenderises the meat.
  • Hot Beef Stock

How To Make Slow Cooker Brisket

Prep Time – 10 minutes / Cook Time 8 hours (approx)

  1. Lightly grease the inside of the slow cooker pan using the olive oil.
  2. Add a layer of vegetables and then brisket – scatter in the chopped onions to the bottom of the slow cooker pan. Lay the carrots on top of the onions then lay the brisket joint on top of the vegetables.
  1. Pour over the hot beef stock, Cook on low for around 8 hours until the beef is cooked through properly and super tender. You can add a pinch of salt here too if using.
  2. To thicken the onion gravy – remove the slow cooker beef brisket and carrots then thicken using a tsp of cornflour that’s been mixed with a drop of cold water, just pour into the gravy and stir as you simmer over a medium-high heat until gravy thickens.

⭐ You can add in extra vegetables to the pot if you like for a true one-pot meal. Try adding in whole new potatoes or any other root vegetables.

⭐ Be sure to check your brisket after around 8 hours, you don’t want to cook it too long as it can turn chewy and dry if left too long.

⭐ Leftover slow cooker brisket is great stuffed into baguettes with mustard and onions next day. Or if you have leftover gravy too – you can make French dip sandwiches.
