I love putting my crockpot to work while I sleep (it’s not even my crockpot as my friend Fiona lent it to me for the summer in Edinburgh) – I think there’s a sense of satisfaction that magical things are working to create my meal while I do nothing.
Paleo BBQ Brisket Recipe
I put all BBQ sauce ingredients into the crockpot first and mix it together in there (to avoid extra washing up). Then I place the whole piece of brisket into the crockpot and slather it with the BBQ sauce.
After 12 hours of cooking, the Paleo BBQ brisket is pretty tender. I deliberately put extra water into the BBQ sauce to prevent the brisket from drying out, but I like to reduce the sauce a bit before serving.
So, I get some of the brisket out and shredded it. Then I ladle some of the BBQ sauce out of the crockpot and cook the shredded meat in the BBQ sauce on the stove for a few minutes to reduce the sauce. I also add extra salt at this point if it needs it.
