Gluten Free Easy Beef Brisket

Gluten Free Easy Beef Brisket Recipe

It’s a brand new year! And a time when people make resolutions. Sometimes those resolutions are … well, let’s say a little far-fetched. You know what I mean.

But here is one resolution I am in favor of – eating at home more often! There are so many reasons to prepare and eat dinner at home; it saves money, you control the ingredients, you can be sure your food is gluten free, and maybe most important – sitting down to eat dinner with your family can be so rewarding. It is a time to catch up on each other’s day. To connect. To be a family!

When my boys were growing up, I cooked dinner and we sat down at the table to eat five nights a week. Friday night we went out somewhere fun for dinner as a family and Saturday night was date night. The rest of the week, we ate at home. To this day my boys appreciate and cherish this simple act of eating dinner together. At the table. No TV. No phone.

Yes, we actually talked to each other! Shocking, right?

This recipe for Gluten Free Easy Beef Brisket Recipe makes a fabulous Sunday night dinner or you can cook it on a day when you have time and serve another night since it reheats beautifully.

Recipe Notes: I used gluten free beer in this recipe but if you prefer not to, you can substitute with some gluten free beef stock. Make sure your barbeque sauce is gluten free – not all are! I always prefer when using sugar in a recipe to use organic, so I used Wholesome! Organic Light Brown Sugar. I always cook and bake with kosher salt, if you use table salt, cut the amount in half.

    Mmm delicious! I only made my first brisket a few years ago and I’m totally in love. We had family dinners too. As a child it was difficult to tear myself away from friends/TV for a meal but now as an adult I feel so fortunate I had that experience :)

      Do you cook the meat at 325 degrees for the 3 hours
      Seems high or do you turn it down

        Yes, I cooked it the whole time at 325 F.

    I have always made my brisket with a traditional recipe calling for onion soup mix. But having recently been diagnosed with celiac I had to find a gluten-free brisket recipe for Passover. I did make your gluten-free easy beef brisket recipe and it was fabulous! The combo of (GF)beer and barbecue sauce gave it a delicious flavor! I’m staying with this recipe thank you thank you Carol for creating an easy and great tasting brisket!!! :-)

    I cannot believe how delicious this recipe is – and easy to do. I did use grated garlic for the rub – didn’t have the powder. I also cooked it longer, about 5 hours. I let it cool and it was perfect to cut!

      You don’t have to trim the fat, I personally don’t like my brisket real fatty.

    Can this recipe work in a slow cooker? Say on low for 7-8 hours?

      Hi Betty,
      Yes, I think that should work just fine. Let me know how it goes!

    If I am making a larger brisket – say 8’ish lbs – do I triple cooking time? I am a newbie at this and wanted to make sure first.

      Hi Tina,

      It will depend on the thickness, but as a good rule of thumb, you should cook it for 1 to 1 1/2 hours per pound. Hope this helps!
