Pasture Raised Beef Brisket

  • Author: Katie
  • Yield: serves 4-6 1x


This brisket is slow-cooked in the crockpot for an easy, simple dinner.



  • 2 - 2 1/2 lbs organic, pasture raised beef brisket
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried fennel seed
  • ground pepper to taste
  • sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Place brisket inside crock pot.  You can either keep the cut whole, or slice it into smaller pieces.
  2. Mix all spices in a small bowl (except sesame seeds) and sprinkle over brisket.
  3. Put lid on crock-pot and set cooking temperature to high.
  4. Cook until done.*
  5. Remove brisket from crock pot and place on lined baking sheet.  Broil in oven for about 5 minutes for a crisp top. **
  6. Remove from oven and top with sesame seeds before serving.


*The cooking time will depend on the size of the meat you put in.  I suggest prepping this recipe in the morning and then letting your meat cook all day, until the evening.  But, you could start the cooking time later in the day.  I recommend a minimum cooking time of 5 hours on high temperature.

**If you decide to cut the brisket into small pieces before cooking, I do not suggest broiling (step 5).  Also, If you want your meat shredded (similar to a pulled pork) then I suggest skipping this step.
