If you can smoke a beef brisket , that is the preferred method. The full flavors of the beef shine through when you smoke it, and it is at its most tender. Smoked brisket is some of the best BBQ you will have ever. Paired with the right sauce, it's downright heavenly.
- Dry rub and dry roast in oven
- Use a dry rub and roast with liquid in oven

- Use a dry rub and roast with liquid in slow cooker

No matter which way you choose to cook a brisket of beef, low and slow makes all the difference.
You can slice the brisket against the grain carefully with a sharp knife or shred it. I find it easier to shred it, through it's not as pretty when you serve it.
💭 Top tip
When cooking a brisket of beef in a slow cooker, you really have two options, dry or wet. I have tried it with a dry rub wrapped in foil, and I've tried it the way this recipe calls for. In general I prefer the wet option. I like the flavor of the sauce.
- Dry rub, wrap roast in foil, cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- Add all ingredients to a slow cooker including a liquid base such as broth or soy sauce and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Most Korean beef recipes use brown sugar or molasses to add the necessary sweetness. I wanted to lighten this up and make it a low carb or ketogenic recipe but I still wanted it to taste delicious. My kids really enjoyed it, as did we, but if you can tolerate a spicier beef, you may want to increase the red pepper flakes. I can't make it to spicy or my kids will freak out.
