This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen! Lots of the recipes we cook call for onions and peppers so this is such a great time tip that we use frequently.

  1. I don’t have an instant pot and can’t afford one. How could you make this in a crock pot? ?????

  2. Yes, you can definitely make this one in the crock pot. Put all the ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for approximately 9-10 hours. Thanks!

  3. 5 stars
    I cut the paprika, salt, and bbq sauce in half. It came out perfect, but adjust to your own tastes. There’s probably a lot of room for adjustment on those.

    After cooking, I put the brisket on a cutting board and dumped the liquid into a separate bowl. After shredding, I put the meat back in the pot and added about a cup or so of the liquid back to the meat. Left it on warm.

    Everyone complimented the result. Easy recipe and I love that the author knows that searing and rubbing ingredients in is basically pointless for a shredded brisket.

  4. 4 stars
    I also adjusted some ingredients, halved the barbecue sauce, chilli powder, salt because I thought that would best suit our tastes and this was amazing. I think this is a great flexible recipe.

  5. The recipe calls for i.2 chopped onions. Is that 1.2 cup? I’m not sure how to calculate .2 onions. I know it’s probably a dumb question but I’m new to this. Sorry

  6. Do you think it would fit in a 6 qt if the recipe were doubled? I’ll be cooking for around 10 adults. Thank you!

  7. Yes, I think so. I would probably cut the 2 briskets into smaller pieces just so it would call fit and make sure that they are fully thawed out before adding to the crock pot. Let me know how it turns out!
