Wouldn't it be great if you could use your slow cooker for every holiday? Why can't you? With Passover falling mid-week this year, I find it a bit overwhelming that there will be a hungry crowd flooding into my house (rightfully) expecting a home cooked meal when I'm short on time.

Passover has always been one of my favorite holidays to celebrate with friends and family so I always make sure I'm super organized so I can enjoy the seder and not feel the need to keep running back and forth to the kitchen. This is where my slow cooker comes in really handy, especially when making brisket, a classic Passover dish.

It takes just 15 minutes to prep all the ingredients and toss them in the pot. Then you can spend the next several hours just taking in the incredible smells of this heart warming dish….and the hours after enjoying it!

    With Passover coming up again in a few weeks, I am looking for an easy recipe. This looks perfect, except I don’t have a slow cooker yet. Do you have a recommendation for a good one that will fit a 4 or 5 lb brisket?

    Wow–this is so good!! My food allergic (milk protein, eggs, wheat, corn, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, stone fruits, nightshades) toddler son can safely eat this (with allergy appropriate beef broth) and he, and my husband love it! I really like it too. Super yummy and great for the cooler weather.

    Very tasty, very easy recipe. Enjoying it with my family right now :) I went ahead and cooked it on low for about 7 hours then turned it to warm and it was very juicy. I cooked 6 carrots instead of 4, but next time will probably do 8 or 10, as that is my daughters favorite part. Thanks for the recipe!

    Made this yesterday and followed the recipe exactly. Used a 4 1/2 lb. brisket, trimmed excess fat, put in the slow cooker on high for 5 hrs. It was very dry. What went wrong?

      It’s possible you trimmed more fat than you needed to, or cooked it too long (4-6 hrs, maybe yours just needed 4).

      Hi! I haven’t made this recipe yet, so I may be speaking out of turn…generally brisket needs to be cooked “low and slow” to stay juicy. I wonder if the recipe was changed to “cook low for 8-10 hours” if the result would be better?

        I was actually thinking that, too. Maybe next time I’ll try doing it that way and see if it makes a difference.

    Can this work if I use twice as much meat? We have a big crew coming for Passover…

      Yes, but it will probably take longer to cook!

    Wow, I can’t believe it. You read my mind because I was going to ask if you were going to do a slow cooker brisket recipe. I tried the slow cooker pulled pork (delicious by the way) and had to use beef shoulder and thought that it reminded me of brisket. Thank you so much!

    I’m so excited to try this recipe. I’ve been looking for a slower cooker recipe and I love weelicious so I’m sure this will be awesome.
