Carb Hickory BBQ Beef Brisket
A great low carb
slow cooker recipe
1 3lb beef brisket,
trimmed of fat
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp celery seed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 onions, sliced thin
1 cup Hickory style BBQ sauce (low carb version if possible
for even fewer carbs)
1/2 cup beer
4 multigrain or wholewheat buns
In a small bowl,
create a brisket beef rub by combining chili powder, celery
seed, salt and pepper. Rub spicy mix on all sides of beef.
Layer 1/2 the amount of sliced onions in the bottom of the
slow cooker. Then add brisket, cutting if neccessary. Layer
remaining onions on top of brisket.
In a separate bowl
combine hickory BBQ sauce and beer, then pour over brisket
in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours, or
until tender and cooked through.
and allow to rest on cutting board for 15 minutes. Cut brisket
in half then shred beef with a fork. Turn slow cooker up to
high and place shredded beef back in slow cooker with remaining
sauce and stir to coat beef with sauce. Cook to ensure the
beef is heated through.
Toast buns if desired,
then divide brisket onto the eight bun halves, using a slotted
spoon to prevent too much sauce from making the buns soggy.
