Apple Butter Beef Brisket

It's not often that I'm mincing onions and garlic before 7 a.m. but in this case it was worth it.  This cut of beef needs a long, slow cooking time so it was perfect to put in the crock pot and forget about it for 10 hours.  







Apple Butter Beef Brisket

1 beef brisket, mine was 2.3 pounds
1/4 cup onions, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup apple cider
1/2 cup apple butter
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp Ancho chili pepper

Place the beef brisket in the bottom of your crock pot.  In a small bowl, whisk together all the remaining ingredients.  Pour over the brisket so it's covered.  Place the lid on your crock pot and set to medium heat and cook for 10 hours.
