Healthy Slow Cooker Jewish Brisket

  • Author: jzmcbride
  • Total Time: 6 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 lbs 1x


This Healthy Slow Cooker Jewish Brisket is a taste-great, feel-good classic. It smells amazing when it’s cooking and it’s super versatile. Serve it sliced “pot roast style” or shred the meat and use it in tacos. It’s sugar-free, gluten-free, keto, paleo & Whole30 compliant.


Units Scale
  • 2 lb beef brisket (ideally grass fed)
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup sugar-free ketchup
  • 1/3 cup sugar-free BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup beef bone broth
  • (optional) 4 chopped carrots and 1 lb yukon gold potatoes
  • (optional) sprig of fresh thyme or chopped flat-leaf parsley


  1. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Heat a pan to medium high (or use the saute function on your slow cooker) and sear the meat on all sides until it is slightly brown. This will take 5-10 minutes. You can skip this step if you’re in a hurry, but the searing does add flavor.
  2. Place onions in the bottom of slow cooker.
  3. Put the brisket on top of the onions.
  4. Mix the garlic, ketchup, BBQ sauce and beef broth together and pour over the meat.
  5. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
  6. If adding carrots and potatoes, put them in for the last two hours.
  7. Slice the meat against the grain and return it to the sauce. 
  8. (optional) Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley or thyme.


I made this brisket in my slow cooker. But you could also make it in a large dutch oven (with a lid) and cook it at 350 F for 4 – 6 hours.
