This easy Two Ingredient Slow Cooker Beef Brisket will be a dinner home run. Cooking brisket in the slow cooker with salsa verde makes the meat tender and juicy.
Oh my goodness! I just got back from a full four days away from my family. Can you believe it? I was visiting with my parents with no hubby and no kids. It was amazing. No offense family, I did miss you but it was completely relaxing. It's not so much what we did that was relaxing, it's what I didn't do...
- no laundry
- no cooking (yes, I get tired of getting dinner on the table every night)
- no homework
- no picking up socks
- no grocery shopping
- no nagging
It was glorious. I'm not sure I've ever taken time away from the family like that and I highly recommend it for any busy mom. I feel renewed and more energetic. My kids even looked different when I came home; more grown up. I swear I saw a bit of fear in my husband's eyes. He was glad I was home. This was a chance for him to see how many little (and big) things I handle around here that he might take for granted. The kiddos missed me too; mostly my cooking since they ate pizza for four days straight.
I highly suggest you give it a try, even for one night in a local hotel. I've always told my husband that being a mom is hard because there's no yearly review, no feedback from your "boss" and no written goals for improvement. We have to find a way to be internally motivated to work hard to be a good parent and it's the hardest job ever. Seeing them grow up and turn into caring, responsible and motivated young adults is rewarding for sure but I also like a thank you now and then. ?
Speaking of thank yous - you will get them for this dinner. You don't have to tell anyone how stupid easy this is. Place beef brisket is slow cooker and pour salsa verde on top. Cook on low 8 hours. Done.
Seriously. Stupid easy.
Serve this tender and delicious Two Ingredient Slow Cooker Beef Brisket on corn or flour tortillas. Put it on a bun with avocado for a sandwich.
