Slow cooker beef brisket

Ages ago I found an amazing recipe for a slow roasted bbq beef brisket. It was delicious! The big problem, it includes tons of salt, bottle BBQ sauce and other no-no seasonings. My Mom decided over thanksgiving to make a delicious BBQ brisket that was paleo. I am so proud of her because this brisket was fantastic and it was her first attempt at making something Paleo. She is a fantastic cook, so that helps. :)

Slow-cooker Paleo Beef Brisket

Beef brisket, about 2-3 lbs

1 medium onion, diced

3/4 cup tomato sauce

6 cloves of garlic, minced

2 tbsp olive oil works

2 tbsp chili powder (less if you don't want it too spicy)

2 tbsp dijon mustard (look for a good paleo one)

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 cup crushed pineapple (with its juice)

1 tsp sea salt

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl (except for brisket and onion). Score the flat side of the brisket with a sharp knife. Place brisket in slow cooker, cover with half of the sauce. Turn the brisket over and cover with the remaining sauce. Place onions over the top. Cover and cook on low 8 hours or until it falls apart. Enjoy!

You'll want to eat your brussel sprouts

My mom made these delicious sprouts for dinner tonight. They were from a Disney recipe and they are amazing.

Brussel sprouts roasted with bacon and apple

1 lbs brussel sprouts, quartered
3 slices bacon, cut into 1 in pieces
1 onion, diced
2 firm apples, cored and chopped
2 tbsp grass fed butter, melted
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place brussel sprouts in roasting pan or casserole. Add bacon, onion and apples. Pour on butter, syrup, salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Place in oven and cook for 40-50 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sprouts are caramelized and apples are tender. Serve and enjoy!
