Slow Cooker BBQ Brisket with Black Eyed Peas and Jalapeno Cornbread

My main objective of making this dish was to try the sauce. All the usual suspects are accounted for but the chipotle in adobo peaked my interest. If you have never tried these it’s an interesting taste. The first time I ever tried it the jar seemed so tiny and I was used to using a lot of jalapenos so over used them and it totally destroyed my dish. From that point on I have stayed away but recently came back to them to try in a more restrained manner. There is a heat and smoky deep chili taste that you just can’t find in anything else. It’s like a tomato paste that is so concentrated that it can transform a dish with just a little addition of these peppers.

The sauce and brisket turned out great. I propped the lid to allow the steam to escape and to reduce and further concentrate the sauce. If you do this check on it to make sure it doesn’t burn and if it looks too dry add some water, broth, beer, bourbon. I whipped up some jalapeno cheddar cornbread and black eyed peas with seasoning and jalapenos.

Kosher Salt and Pepper

BBQ Sauce:
1 yellow onion chopped finely or pureed
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 Green pepper chopped (seeded)
2 chipotles (in adobo)
1 ½ cups of ketchup
½ cup water
3 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tbs of Jack Daniels
½ cup of brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
Pinch of oregano
Kosher Salt and Black Pepper

Directions
1. Cover your brisket in the rub. Sear in a medium heated pan

2. Add the sauce ingredients into the crock pot. Trim your brisket to fit into the pot. Add your seared meat and let it cook for 7-9 hrs or until tender.

3. Remove and slice against the grain and add back to the sauce to maximize flavor. If you like less sauce you can simply pour that sauce in a dish and add as little or much as you desire. IMG_8832
