Brisket with Ale BBQ Sauce

Makes: 10 servings
Prep 25 mins Slow Cook 10 hrs to 12 hrs  (low) or 5 to 6 hours (high)
Brisket in Onion-Ale BBQ Sauce
  • 1 3 - 4  pound  boneless beef brisket
  • 2  medium  onions, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1  bay leaf
  • 1 12  ounce can  beer
  • 1/4  cup  chili sauce
  • 2  tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 1  clove  garlic, minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  cornstarch
  • 2  tablespoons  cold water

1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker. In cooker combine onions and bay leaf; add meat. In a medium bowl combine beer, chili sauce, brown sugar, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Pour over meat.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours.

3. Using a slotted spoon transfer meat and onion to a serving platter. Slice meat across the grain; cover and keep warm. Discard bay leaf.

4. For sauce, pour enough of the cooking liquid into a 4-cup glass measuring cup to equal 2 1/2 cups; skim off fat. Discard the remaining cooking liquid. In a medium saucepan combine cornstarch and the cold water; stir in the 2 1/2 cups cooking liquid. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more.

5. Serve meat and onions with sauce.
