Total Hours



  • 2-3 lb. untrimmed flat-cut brisket (may cut in half to fit smaller slow cooker)
  • 1 Tbsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1-½ tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. celery salt
  • 2 pints Campari® tomatoes, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 (12 oz.) can or bottle of lager
  • 1 medium onion, cut into quarters
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  • Combine the Kosher salt, brown sugar, chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and celery salt and rub evenly all over the brisket. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. 
  • To make the braising liquid: In a food processor or blender, process 1 pint of the Campari® tomatoes, garlic, lime juice, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and olive oil until smooth. Add beer to the mixture without the motor running, and stir to combine. 
  • Transfer the brisket to a slow cooker. Halve the remaining pint of tomatoes and add to the slow cooker along with the onions. Pour over the braising liquid until it is just covering the meat and cook on low until tender, about 7-8 hours. Allow the brisket to rest and cool slightly before slicing. Serve with the slow-cooked tomatoes and onions and lime wedges.
