Yield: 8 servings

Recipe Ingredients

1 (3 pound) beef brisket, trimmed
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large onion (about 1 1/2 cup), coarsely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 cup dark beer (such as porter or stout)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup ketchup

Cook the brisket: Season the brisket with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the brisket, brown on all sides and transfer to a slow cooker.

Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker and stir well.

Cook, covered, on LOW until the meat is very tender - 8 hours.

Remove the meat, place it on a cutting board and let it rest for 15 minutes.

Reserve the sauce.

Carve brisket into thin slices and divide it among rolls topped with reserved sauce.

Serve warm.
