Prep time

Cook time



  • 1.5kg beef brisket
  • RUB:
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp apple-cider vinegar
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 4-6 brioche buns
  • 150g coleslaw mix
  • 8-10 burger cheese slices
  • Pickles


  • Set the slow cooker to a high heat for 8 hours and place brisket fatty side down.
  • In a bowl, mix the rub spices together and rub over the top of the brisket piece. Place the lid on the slow cooker and set a timer for 30 mins.
  • Combine all the barbecue sauce ingredients in a bowl and add to the slow cooker after the 30-min timer goes off. Combine well over the brisket.
  • Cook for 5½ hours then check. If the brisket still feels quite firm, you can slice it into 4-5 chunks.
  • At 8 hours, Remove the brisket from the slow cooker and place in a baking dish. Pull apart with 2 forks until you achieve a nice pulled consistency.
  • Spoon the sauce from the slow cooker over the pulled meat and stir. Add a few spoonfuls at a time until the meat has a saucy consistency but is not drowning in liquid. Cover with aluminium foil for 5 mins and allow the meat to rest and absorb the juices.
  • Construct your burger buns with coleslaw, pulled brisket, cheese and pickles. It is quite saucy, so extra sauce is optional.
  • Tip: For a quick and easy dinner the next night, reheat leftover brisket for tacos.
