Today was pretty low-key. Sunday is my day off, so I skipped the Shred. But, I felt...lazy. Perhaps I am getting set in a routine? This is a good thing! Instead of feeling lazy all day, Matt and I took Oscar out to a nearby lake for some hiking. We hiked vigorously and I sweat like crazy! It wasn't super hot, but the humidity was out of control. We were only out about 45 minutes to an hour, but I was out of breath and my heart rate was definitely up! So, that's good.
Then - DELICIOUSNESS! I made a really amazing dinner. Which I feel obligated to share with you, clearly.
Without further ado: Weight Watchers Crock Pot Beef Brisket! Yummmmmmy! 6 points for a 3 oz piece of brisket with 6 tbsp of sauce.
1 4lb beef brisket (I used a 2 pound and it was plenty for the two of us)
1 large onion sliced and separated into rings (I omitted the onion because Matt doesn't like it)
3/4 tsp pepper
3 tbsp all purpose flour
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 cup beer
1/2 cup chili sauce
Trim fat from brisket (this was the hardest part!); cut in half. Place onion rings in slow cooker. Sprinkle with pepper evenly over brisket. Place brisket halves over onions. Put flour, brown sugar and garlic in a small bowl. Gradually add beer and chili sauce, stirring until blended. Pour over brisket. Cover with lid and cook on high for 1 hour, then reduce to low and cook 6-8 hours or until tender.
This was seriously one of the tastier things I've ever made. The brisket was so tender that it just fell apart. YUM! Try this - ASAP - and let me know what you think!
