A few weeks ago, I made a beef brisket in the crockpot. I just threw it in the stoneware with some worschestershire sauce, minced garlic, diced onion, salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Then I let it cook on low all day - like 13 hours. We had it for dinner that night with some veggies and applesauce. Very simple and so delicious!
The brisket I used was quite large, so I shredded it all up and made some homemade barbeque sauce from Heavenly Homemakers. I poured the sauce onto the meat and through it in the fridge for dinner later in the week. A couple of days later, I got the shredded BBQ brisket out, warmed it on the stovetop, and served it over a bed of spaghetti squash. Yum, was it awesome! The BBQ sauce is seriously delicious and SO EASY! I made it with the ingredients listed below and it was perfect. I had thought it a little odd to not have a vinegar in there, so I had been prepared to add some... but it didn't need it at all.
Sorry, no pictures of anything. Use your imagination. :)
Homemade BBQ Sauce
3/4 cup ketchup (preferably homemade or organic, definitely one without HFCS!)
2 Tablespoons onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 Tablespoon molasses, honey or sucanat (I used honey)
Mix ingredients in a small sauce pan. Simmer for a few minutes until flavors are blended.
This sauce was amazing on our shredded beef brisket. It'd also be delicious as a dip for homemade chicken nuggets. I can't wait to try this on some grilled BBQ chicken this spring and summer!
