Helpful hints

  • This lower protein version of Braised Beef Brisket has a smaller portion compared to the original recipe on The nutrients have been adjusted to reflect this change.
  • Save money--brisket costs less than most other beef cuts. It is a muscular, less tender beef cut, best when cooked slowly in liquid to tenderize the meat.
  • Use beef brisket for roast beef sandwiches, tacos or burritos, potpie or beef stew.
  • This recipe can be cooked in a slow cooker on low heat 8 to 10 hours.
  • Look for reduced sodium broth containing 500 milligrams sodium or less per 1 cup serving. Avoid low sodium broth that contains potassium chloride—it’s very high in potassium.  Recommended brands include Health Valley® No Salt Added Fat Free Beef Flavored Broth  (800-423-4846), Kitchen Basics® Natural Beef Flavor Stock, and Swanson® Lower Sodium Beef Broth
