Ingredients for your Coffee-braised brisket
To get this low-carb crock pot magic cooking, we need the following ingredients:
- 10-pound beef brisket, boneless.
- 1 tablespoon of ground coffee.
- 1 tablespoon of paprika.
- 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
- 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper.
- 1 teaspoon of salt- 2 large onions.
- 1/2 cup brewed coffee.
A few preliminary tips:
The most important ingredient is the meat itself. You need to find a nice quality cut of boneless beef brisket in order to make the dream meal you’re aiming for.
Brew the coffee strong. This champion among low-carb crock pot recipes separates from the crowd by its magnetic coffee aroma. 1/2 cup coffee you add needs to pack a strong flavor punch in order to infuse the brisket with the aroma we’re after. Instead of brown sugar, you can use a variety of sugar substitutes available on the market like Sugar Twin® Granulated brown.
Make sure to follow package directions to measure the right amount of product to match 2 tablespoons needed for our recipe.
Coffee-braised brisket steps:
Combine the spices in a bowl. Mix together brown sugar, the tablespoon of ground coffee, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
Next thing we need to do is remove undesired fat from our meat. We’re making the meal low carb, and don’t need excess fat cheats. Take the knife and carefully trim the fat from the brisket.
Now it’s rubbing time. Take the spices mixture and rub it all over the brisket, covering all surfaces.
Place the meat in your crock cooker. If needed, cut it in a way it can comfortably fit in your cooker. Cut the onions into slices and place them over the brisket. Mix together coffee and vinegar and pour the flavor packing mixture over the brisket and onions.
Cover your crock cooker and let it simmer on low-heat for 9 – 10 hours. If you had a busy day and want to spare some time, set it on high-heat and the simmering time will reduce to 4 – 5 hours.
Once it’s done, take the brisket out, on to a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to slice the meat across the grain. Once you remove the onions, use the cooking liquid as a rich sauce to coat the slow cooked tender beef when serving.
