Back to Monday, y'all. Happily, I have the perfect weeknight (or any night) meal that requires about 2 minutes of prep and leaves you with a super satisfying dinner!
We all know the crockpot is a lifesaver when you've got a busy schedule, and this meal is no exception. All you need to do is season the meat, put it in the crockpot with Dr. Pepper, and 8 hours later you'll be in complete bliss.
I used Dr. Pepper for my brisket because 1. I'm a Texan, 2. I went to Baylor, and 3. it's delish. But, if you'd rather, feel free to substitute cola or root beer. (just don't use diet!)
Let your crockpot take care of dinner tonight - you'll be so happy you did.
Crockpot Dr. Pepper Brisket Tacos
2-3 lbs. beef brisket
kosher salt and pepper
1-2 tablespoons chili powder
6 cups Dr. Pepper
for serving: tortillas, sliced avocados, pico, lime wedges
Rub down brisket with a generous amount of salt, pepper, and chili powder on both sides. Place brisket fat side up in your crockpot. Pour Dr. Pepper over. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
When brisket is done, remove from crockpot and cover it with foil to rest for 15-20 minutes. Discard crockpot liquid. Once the brisket has rested, slice or shred it and serve with tortillas, avocado, and pico as desired. Enjoy this incredibly simple, incredibly delicious meal!
