Dinner In the Kitchen

Crockpot Brisket and Onions

I love to use my crockpot! It’s so nice to come home (after a day of co-op classes, running errands, or taking a field trip) to the wonderful smell of Crockpot Brisket and Onions. It takes a few minutes to prepare before turning on the crock pot, but I think you’ll find that it’s worth it!

Place half of your brisket in the crockpot. Top with half of the onions, a half teaspoon of thyme, a sprinkling of pepper and a bay leaf. Top with the other half of the brisket, along with the other half of the onion mixture, and another half teaspoon of thyme, another sprinkling of pepper and a second bay leaf. Cover and cook on high for 6-7 hours. Discard the bay leaves, and cut or shredd the brisket. Serve this on rolls or as a stand alone main dish with your choice of sides.
