Barbecue Brisket Slider Recipe
Everyone loves barbecues. But according to government run Food Safety councils across the globe, undercooked meat on a BBQ is one of the biggest health concerns in the developed world. This is because raw or uncooked meat contains germs that can cause life threatening levels of food poisoning. This is why using a slow cooker is a great way to ensure that not only is the meat well cooked, but it also helps the barbecues taste better because of the evenly applied heat.
In this article, we will teach you how to make barbecue brisket sliders using a slow cooker. Here are the ingredients you will need –
1 flatly cut beef brisket
1 tablespoon of Cumin powder,
1 tablespoon of Onion powder
½ tablespoon of Garlic powder and Cumin
½ tablespoon of Cayenne pepper
12-16 small potato rolls
½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup honey barbecue sauce
½ cup brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
Above all, a slow cooker
How to make:
To start off, you will need to prepare the beef brisket. For this, take out the trimmed beef brisket and sprinkle it with a good amount of salt and pepper. Over this, evenly sprinkle the Cumin powder, Onion powder, garlic powder, Cumin and Cayenne pepper that we had listed in the ingredients. As you do this, remember to evenly spread the powder all over the surface of the brisket. This is not only to give a uniform taste but also helps the brisket absorb these tastes unto it which makes the brisket taste better overall. Apply these powders to both sides of the brisket.Pour your honey barbecue sauce and brown sugar into the slow cooker and stir it to mix evenly. Once this is done, slowly dip the seasoned brisket into the sauce mixture. If you have a little sauce remaining, pour this on the top of the brisket. It is now time for the slow cooker to get at work. Close the cooker with its lid and let the brisket cook on low for 9-10 hours.
After this is done, the brisket is thoroughly cooked. Take it out of the cooker and slice off the top layer from the brisket. Now turn it upside down and run your knife against the grain of the brisket. This will shred the brisket into thin fragments.
In the meantime, the sauce from the slow cooker would begin to cool off and you should be able to notice the fat from the sauce rise to the top. Skim this layer off the sauce and discard.
Now drop the shreds of brisket back into the slow cooker that already contains the sauce with the fat skimmed out. Heat it for around an hour. You can add some water if you notice the sauce beginning to thicken up. Continue this till the meat is completely cooked.
Serve the shreds of the brisket on the hamburger buns. Add the potato rolls and mayonnaise for added taste. Your kids will love this food.
