Slow Cooker Spicy Brisket with Texas Caviar

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 6 HRS 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  2. 2 1/2 pounds top brisket
  3. 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon hot barbecue spice blend or Cajun spice blend
  4. 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  5. 4 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  6. 3 cups chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  7. One 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, chopped, juices reserved
  8. 1 1/2 cups black-eyed peas
  9. Salt
  1. In a very large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Sprinkle the brisket all over with 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of the spice blend. Add the brisket to the skillet and cook over moderately high heat until well-browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the brisket to the slow cooker.
  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Add the onion and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of the spice blend and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the stock and the tomatoes and their juices to the skillet and bring to a boil over high heat, scraping to release the browned bits on the bottom. Pour the mixture into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Turn the heat to low and cook for 1 hour longer.
  3. Add the black-eyed peas to the cooker, cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 hours, until the brisket and peas are tender.
  4. Transfer the brisket to a carving board. Cover loosely with foil and rest for 15 minutes. Season the sauce with salt. Carve the brisket into 1/3 inch thick slices and using a large spatula, carefully return the brisket to the cooker. Turn off the cooker and let the brisket rest in the sauce for at least 15 minutes or up to 1 hour before serving.
Make Ahead The dish can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Reheat gently.

Suggested Pairing

Peppery, jammy Zinfandel.
