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.
- 1½ pounds brisket, flank rib, shoulder roast or stew meat
- 3 cups Chicken Stock or Kettle & Fire Bone Broth

I have your cookbooks and your website is always by go-too. I have told every I know about you. Question, I am making brisket for company tomorrow. Can I double it. Or should I use two separate crock pots?
Susan, I haven’t tried that so not sure, if you experiment I hope you’ll let me know if it worked :-)
Here it goes!!
Nice and easy!
Hopefully my very picky husband will love this recipe.
Cheryl, I hoped he loved it!
I’m going to make this on Saturday. I’ll let you know how it goes! I love your recipes, nice and clean, never too fussy. You have excellent sensibilities. <3
Beth, what a great comment. Thanks so much for your kind words :-)
Anyone try searing the brisket first before using the crockpot?
Andi, I haven’t tried that but what a great idea :-)
Is there a way to do without a slow cooker?
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.
