Chipotle Spiked Crockpot Brisket

This recipe is cooked over 2 days but is well worth the effort.

Prep: 10-12 hours (crockpot)
Refrigerate: Overnight
Cook: 8-10 hours (crockpot)
Servings: Serves 6-8

3-5 lb. beef brisket
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1-2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced
3/4 cup dark beer
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
6-8 red potatoes, quartered
1 1/2 cups baby carrots


Place brisket in the crockpot with the onions. Mix chiles, beer, tomato paste, cinnamon, pepper, salt, brown sugar and garlic. Pour over the brisket.
Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours.
Cool to room temperature and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, skim fat from liquid and trim as much fat from the brisket as possible. Add the potatoes and carrots.
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

There was a recipe for Cinnamon Chicken that I've always been meaning to try but just never have.

I am curious- have you tried this one Chrissy ?


If you cook a 3-5 lb. brisket for 10-12 hours it is going to be pretty far done and falling apart- then you

No I haven't tried it. I got this off a Texas Beef site....I don't know, but I'm thinking Texans know how to cook their beef ;) lol

I am the same as you Dani, lost me on the cinnamon. I don't associate that with cooking, baking, but not cooking...but I haven't never tried it, so what do I know? I could be missing out, like I was on the onions! lol

I think it sounds kinda like a sweet & spicy bbq.... 1/4 tsp cinnamon isn't much compared to a whole 5 lb brisket.

I agree that the amount isn't really enough to influence the taste that much.

Made this for Easter dinner. It was very good. I am not a big beef eater though, but Ken LOVED it and so did Kyle. Alyssa was to sick to eat Easter dinner though, but I think she would have liked it. It had a little spice to it, but it was just right, not overpowering at all. I'd make it again, Ken's already talking about making it again lol
The only thing I'd change, I think next time I'd half the cinnamon amount.
