The best healthy crockpot barbecue brisket recipe

This healthy crockpot barbecue brisket recipe is so quick and easy to prepare but packs a punch in terms of flavour.

One of my favourite gadgets in the kitchen is my crockpot. I love the idea of being able to dump everything into the crockpot all at once and a few hours later you have a hot and gorgeous meal waiting for you. The recipe options are absolutely endless for the crockpot and this is one of many dishes that get prepared in there. I reckon that I use my crockpot at least once a week to prepare a meal. If you would like other healthy crockpot recipes then feel free to have a look at these recipes that I also made in the crockpot ….

But let’s get back to this week’s recipe which is a healthy barbecue marinade for the brisket. Usually the barbecue recipes are packed with heaps of sugar. This recipe uses healthier sources of sweetness with just as much success. This recipe was fall apart delicious. I served it for a smarter Friday night dinner and all the guests love the meat. A few people even asked for the recipe which is always a good sign. You can either slice this brisket once it’s cooked or you can serve pulled brisket with this recipe too because it is so soft once it’s cooked.


If you don’t have a crockpot you can make this brisket recipe in the oven. Just place the brisket and sauce into an ovenproof dish, cover with tinfoil or a lid and roast on 170C for 4 – 4 1/2 hours.

We all enjoyed this recipe so much and it was also good to know that I wasn’t piling everyone with heaps of sugar and there was at least some benefit to the meal. Just a note, if you would like to make this recipe paleo then switch the soy sauce for coconut aminos and the recipe will be paleo.

So here is my healthy barbecue brisket recipe. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did, Leanne x
