Nonstick cooking spray
1 (6-pound) brisket
1 cup of your favorite Mexican-style red salsa
1 cup dark beer
1 cup of your favorite tomato-based barbecue sauce
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Spray the stoneware insert with the cooking spray.
Spray a frying pan with the cooking spray; place on the stove over medium heat, add the brisket and sear, about 1 minute on each side. Transfer the meat to the slow-cooker.
Pour the salsa, the beer and the barbecue sauce over the meat. Cover, place on the heating unit and cook on Low for 8 hours.
Remove the brisket, slice and serve on a platter with the sauce over it or served on the side. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro leaves. Serve with mashed potatoes, or potato pancakes, or on potato-flour sandwich buns.
