Beef Brisket

Beef Brisket is so easy to make that it practically cooks itself. You simply throw all of the ingredients in a crockpot and a few hours later it’s done. This easy brisket recipe is a favorite paleo dinner in our family! Growing up I loved the brisket that my Bubby made. It was melt in your mouth amazing. My mother also made incredible beef brisket.

Since I started eating red meat religiously a couple of years ago (rather than every now and then) I have watched my iron levels climb to a healthy level. I was chronically anemic for years, and found from personal experience that eating red meat was the best way for me to solve this health issue.

While it is not often discussed, so many people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance suffer from anemia and low iron levels. One can supplement with iron as many doctors advised me to, however iron supplements are extremely challenging to assimilate and can cause problems of their own.

I made this on Friday and there wasn’t even a sliver left after it hit the table. I dearly love this recipe, it brought me right back to my childhood!

    • Leanna, thanks for your comment! I haven’t tried that so not sure, if you do experiment I hope you’ll let me know if it works :-)

    • I do this by placing in the over at 225 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 hours. In a nice ovenproof pan with a tight lid. I don’t check it until 8 hours.
