Beer Braised Brisket

Chef Jamie Geller
This beer braised brisket is made easy in the slow cooker. Add 1- 2 cups beef broth for added depth of flavor.


1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 brisket (4-pound)
2 tablespoons olive oil
24 ounce stout or ale


In a small bowl, combine paprika, brown sugar, cumin, coffee, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder and stir to mix. Rub all over brisket.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add brisket and sear 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until nicely browned. Transfer to a slow cooker and add beer. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing against the grain.

Transfer braising liquid to a medium saucepan over medium high heat and reduce liquid, for about 12 to 16 minutes or until only about ½ cup remains and is thickened. Pour over brisket to serve.
