Recipe: Crock Pot Honey Mustard Brisket

Last week I shared this amazing recipe for homemade Honey Mustard dressing - it was so simple and delicious. The best part was that you could customize it to your taste buds. 

  This week - I came across a recipe for a Crock Pot Honey Mustard Brisket using that dressing! Color me excited! I'm always looking for new crock pot recipes that are actually good and this one seemed to be worth a try. Sometimes I don't like the texture of the meat out of the crock pot - so I was hopeful on this one. 

First I had to find a brisket - the only small brisket I could find was one for Corned Beef. I asked the meat guy filling the case if this was the same as the other (5 pound) briskets except just had the seasoning for corned beef and he said yes. So, I bought one of those pre-packaged (1.5 pound) Corned Beef Briskets and just pitched the seasonings. 

The recipe said to brown the brisket before putting in the crock pot. I've seen this in numerous other recipes but never done it. Luckily - I picked up this dutch oven at an estate sale last year - so I just popped it in while I was getting ready for work! 

Then into the crock pot with my pre-made honey mustard dressing for a full day of simmering.

When I got home - the house smelled delicious! I pulled the brisket out and used a couple of forks to pull it apart. Then I poured the sauce that was left in the crock pot into a measuring cup to use as gravy.

This brisket was DELICIOUS and tender and juicy. I have to say - it tasted even better as leftovers. I had extra mashed potatoes as well and took it to work the next day. This is definitely going in the "make again" column! I hope you enjoy it too!
