Updated October 16, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 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.
  • 3
    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.

  • If possible, refrigerate shredded beef mixture, then remove fat from top, then reheat.
  • Like it hot? Add 1 or 2 extra tablespoons of chopped chipotle chile to the sauce.
  • 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.
