Crockpot Beef Brisket (Last day of Hanukkah)-Gluten Free Suggestions

Today is the last day of Hanukkah and I am ending it with a dinner of Beef Brisket, roasted vegetables and Sweet Potato Biscuits. The first time I had ever had brisket, was when I was in Florida, about 5 years ago. I had visited on of our family, friend’s and she has made this delicious Brisket. It stayed in my mind all these years and I thought, what better way to end Hanukkah with a Feast!

I am trying out Crockpot liners today. My crockpot is pretty big and it is unwieldy to clean. Hopefully this will help out with the cleaning. This meat is a pretty tough cut, so slow cooking, is one of the best ways to prepare this dish.


2.5 – 3 lbs Beef Brisket, lean or thin cut

1 large onion, sliced

2 cups of carrots, sliced in rounds

3-4 stalks of celery, sliced

2 Lipton Onion Soup Mix packets (with or without Mushrooms) *Gluten Sensitivity, see note at bottom of page

1 (12 oz) can of beef broth

olive oil

3 tablespoons of cornstarch


  1. Line crockpot with liner (skip, if you aren’t using one) and add the Lipton Soup packets.
  2. Add the beef brisket to the pot and coat it with the soup mix.
  3. Add beef broth.
  4. In a pan, saute the onions, carrots and celery until soft. Add to crockpot
  5. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours or low for 7 hours
  6. Remove brisket and vegetables onto a serving platter
  7. To thicken gravy, remaining in crockpot, keep crockpot on high.
  8. In a separate bowl, mix some of the broth from the crockpot, with cornstarch. Add the mixture to the crockpot.
