This Crock Pot Brisket Sandwich Recipe is simple to make but tastes amazing.
You’ll love how easy this recipe is to throw together in the morning. Then let it slow cook all day long and you’ll have delicious and tender bbq pulled brisket to serve that evening.
My entire family loves it when I make this slow cooker beef brisket recipe.
You’ll need a great crock pot to make this beef brisket sandwich.
I have a large family – 8 kids. I know, I know, it’s a lot but we love having a large family. Listen, if you have a big family, you need to have a great crock pot to help feed them all!
Some might say that I’m a slow cooker expert. I’m not sure about that but I do have lots of practice! 🙂
I currently have 3 different types of slow cookers. Out of all of these, the Ninja crock pot is my current favorite. I cannot recommend it enough!
The stove top feature is the best quality of this slow cooker. This option allows you to brown the meat in the same crock pot that you’ll slow cook the food in as well. It makes cooking my favorite crock pot meals even easier (I didn’t think this was even possible)!
My sister has a different Ninja slow cooker than mine. It is slightly less expensive but doesn’t have all the same features that mine does. However, it does have the cooktop feature (which we both love). She recommends her as well.
Both of these ninja crock pots have a remove-able insert making them so easy to clean. The insert is non-stick so I think it’s easier to clean than a traditional crock pot.
I also currently own this crockpot. The best feature on this crockpot is that you can lock the lid down on it. I use this slow cooker for when I have to bring food somewhere. The lid makes sure nothing spills in my car while I’m traveling.
Lastly, I also currently have this programmable crock pot for when I am am not at home all day. The programmable feature allows me to come home to a nice meal ready for dinner after I have been gone all day.
There are tons of options for a great slow cooker. The secret is to pick one and then get to know it. Each one cooks things a little bit differently. By using yours consistently, you’ll get to know your crock pot in no time at all.
What ingredients are needed to create this beef brisket sandwich recipe?
If you have been following me for awhile now, you know that I love simple and delicious recipes and I promise that this one is not too complicated either.
You’ll just need a few basic ingredients to create this brisket sandwich recipe.
- Beef Brisket (of course!)
- Salt and Pepper (I never cook without it!)
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Chili Powder

- Buns to serve on!
See, I promised it wouldn’t be too complicated. I bet you already have most of these items in your pantry and your refrigerator.
How do you make this brisket sandwich recipe?
I love how simple this recipe is to make. If you can throw all the ingredients in a slow cooker than you can definitely make this recipe.
First, I put the brisket in the bottom of my favorite crock pot. Then I put all the other ingredients except for the buns on top of the brisket.
Next you slow cook the barbecue brisket for 10 hours. I don’t recommend cooking on high for this recipe as slow cooking this brisket recipe makes it fork tender that it almost melts in your mouth. Yum!
After this cook time, remove the brisket. I put it on a cutting board and shred with 2 forks. Then return the brisket to the crock pot and mix with your barbecue sauce mixture in the crock pot. Finally it’s ready to serve on your favorite type of brisket sandwich bread!
What substitutions can you make with this chopped brisket sandwich recipe?
This recipe is so versatile that there are tons of substitutions that you can choose to make this recipe your own.
If you like sweeter slow cooker pulled beef brisket sandwiches, I recommend add approximately ½ brown sugar to the crock pot prior to slow cooking the brisket.
Also, if you like garlic (like me – I love it!), you can add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder to add a delicious garlic flavor to your brisket sandwich sauce.
If anyone in your family doesn’t care for onions, I recommend substituting the onion for 1-2 teaspoon of onion powder. This way you still get that great onion flavor without scaring anyone off with the onions in the recipe.
After you master this recipe, I hope you take these brisket sandwich ideas to modify this recipe to your and your family’s preferences.
