Slow Cooker Brisket Tacos

I have a new found love for brisket. Until just a few months ago, I hadn't ever cooked with it, let alone knowingly eaten it (Yes, I realize how that sounds.). It is such a great cut of meat that I have made it several different ways. All in the Crock Pot, though!

The Crock Pot. I have one. I'm not a huge user of it, though. Unless it's for brisket, apparently. I do love to just throw it in there and let it go! It's so great for a crowd, too.

These were very easy to put together. The hardest part was shredding the meat, but even that isn't too tricky.

I served these tacos on soft, flour tortillas, with guacamole, salsa, lime and sour cream. So good! We ate them for several days and I didn't even get tired of them. That is huge for me. I don't really love leftovers.

Excellent recipe!**** Brisket is a wonderful cut of meat when prepared correctly. As good as you thing it is now wait until you taste it after it has spent 8-12 hours on the smoker.
