Serves 6

Cook time: 6 hours 20 minutes

Ingredients

Spice Rub

  • 2 tbs. sea salt
  • 2 tbs. freshly ground cumin
  • 2 tbs. freshly ground coriander
  • 1 tbs. turmeric
  • 2 tbs. chili powder (chipotle or ancho is great)

 Brisket

  • 3-4 lbs. beef brisket (1/2 lb. uncooked brisket per person)
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 cups beef broth (p. 110)
  • cabbage leaves or romaine lettuce for taco wraps

Note: If you are sensitive to nightshades, replace chili powder with dried oregano

Directions

1. Mix all spices together to create Spice Rub and apply generously to meat.

2. Place brisket in crockpot, then add onions and garlic. Pour in broth. Set on low and cook 4–6 hours or until brisket is tender enough to fall apart. Do not overcook, or you will lose flavor.

3. Once brisket is tender, remove from crockpot and slice against grain on cutting board. Place back inside crockpot to warm in juices. (If you use chuck roast, you do not have to cut it up as it will fall apart naturally).

4. Serve in cabbage or romaine lettuce wraps.

*Complement with taco fixings such as salsa, cilantro, Creamy Guacamole (p. 12), tomatoes, and bell peppers.
