Tender, flavorful Coffee Glazed Brisket was featured in a Martha Stewart magazine and became our favorite way to eat brisket!!!

This Slow Cooker Brisket is a delicious, comforting recipe that’s perfect on a chilly night.

Coffee Glazed Brisket

Brisket was not a cut of meat I grew up eating. When my friend, Joanne, had her Coffee Glazed Brisket recipe published in Martha Stewart’s Everyday Foods magazine, I knew I had to make it. Since it’s SO simple and delicious, I’ve never been tempted to try another brisket recipe.

I’ve always cooked this beef brisket recipe in a Dutch oven but decided to adapt it for a slow cooker or crockpot for those busy days. I can pop it in the slow cooker in the morning and have a stress-free meal, plus an amazing aroma wafting through the house, by dinner time. Served with mashed potatoes, this makes for a hubby approved entree. I think “incredible” was uttered at least once on the night I served this coffee glazed brisket.

Beef Brisket Recipe

We all have those super busy days when there’s absolutely no time to make a complicated dinner. This super simple slow cooker brisket is a marvelous option for a packed schedule.  Just sear both sides of the beef, mix up the sauce ingredients, and pop both into your slow cooker. That’s it!! 8 hours later, dinner is served!

Plus I’m a huge fan of coffee desserts! Why not a whole coffee-themed meal??? Yes, please to these scrumptious buttercream topped Coffee Cupcakes. This Triple Layer Cocoa Cake demonstrates how coffee enhances chocolate desserts. Mocha Ice Cream always makes me swoon and would be terrific as a sundae or served with a chocolate dessert!

Slow Cooker Coffee Glazed Brisket

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 10 minutes
Yield 6 servings

A slow cooker beef brisket that's pure comfort! Recipe adapted from my friend, Joanne (published in EDF Magazine)


  • 3 pounds beef brisket (thin first cut if possible)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup freshly brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce


  1. Heat oil in Dutch oven. Season brisket with salt and pepper. Add the brisket, fat side down and cook until well browned, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients, place brisket in slow cooker, and pour sauce over brisket. Cook on low for 8 hours, flipping at the halfway mark, or till meat shreds easily with a fork. Remove from slow cooker and slice against the grain. Place back in slow cooker to allow slices to absorb some of the pan juices. Serve with sauce.
  3. Alternatively, cover and bake in 325º oven for 2½-3 hours, flipping halfway through cooking time.
