Slow Cooker Open Faced Brisket Heaven

  • Course: Main Dish

I've roasted bbqbrisket in the oven before and it was absolutely wonderful, but I decided to try something to cook it another way. I was cooking for Sunday dinner and decided to put something different in the slow cooker so I didn't have to cook dinner the next day! Well, let me tell you ... it turned out to be dinner for Monday night, lunch on Tuesday for my kids and leftovers on Friday! Hubby and kids really enjoyed the open faced brisket sandwiches!! When my son took his first bite, all he could say was, "Yum yum yum!" The best part was, all I had to do was season it, add my Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner to my slow cooker, add my liquids, close the lid, turn it on and let it be! This is a great way to cook for multiple days when you have to spend your time working on the kids’ homework and activities and keeping the household together!
