  • 2 tablespoons ground coffee
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 3 to 4 lb beef brisket

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5-quart or larger slow cooker with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix brown sugar, mustard, coffee, chili powder, chipotle chile, baking cocoa and 4 teaspoons salt. Spread over brisket. Place in slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
  • 2
    Transfer brisket to cutting board. Allow to cool slightly. Meanwhile, strain sauce through fine-mesh strainer. Discard solids.

    When cool enough to handle, shred beef using two forks. Discard any remaining fat. Transfer beef and strained liquid back to slow cooker or storage containers.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If possible, refrigerate shredded beef mixture, then remove fat from top, then reheat.
  • tip 2
    Like it hot? Add 1 or 2 extra tablespoons of chopped chipotle chile to the sauce.
  • tip 3
    To serve this beef as a sandwich, bake Pillsbury™ biscuits as directed on package. Using slotted spoon or tongs, top biscuit with beef and a spoonful of coleslaw.
