Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • If you don't have crushed red pepper, just add a few drops of red pepper sauce when you return the beef slices to the cooker.
  • Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese and sliced ripe olives over the top of each sandwich.
  • Brisket is an excellent cut to prepare in the slow cooker because the long, slow cooking ensures tenderness. Use this recipe as a guideline for preparing your favorite brisket recipe.
