Coca Cola Crock Pot Brisket

This recipe turned out fantastic. We actually ended up using it for two different meals. This is the brisket that keeps on giving! I got a 12 pound brisket for $10 and we have gotten at leave 6 meals out of it. 

I couldn’t be any more pleased with this recipe. I have one more quarter of a brisket that I plan on using exactly the same way. We all loved it. Not only did we use it to make brisket tacos, but we used it for barbeque sandwiches.  Excellent!

  • 3 lbs. brisket
  • 1 bell pepper sliced
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 2 cans Coca Cola (Not Diet!)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil


  1. In a large Dutch oven add olive oil then turn the burner on a medium high heat. Once the oil starts to smoke add brisket and keep turning until all sides including the ends are a nice deep brown. The meat may stick a bit. If it’s sticking give it an extra minute or so on that side and it should life off the pot.
  2. Once each side has been browned add the brisket to a lined crock pot. Then coat the brisket with the spices. 
  3. Add the sliced onions and bell pepper to the crock pot (just spread them out evenly)
  4. Next not only pour the Coca Cola on to the brisket, but add the remaining juices from the browning pot also.  That’s too good to waste!
  5. Cook on low for 6-8 hours depending on your brisket and crock pot (Mine took exactly 8 hours then the meat fell apart). 
  6. Every hour I would turn the brisket so that all sides were getting coated and wouldn’t dry out.
  7. Remove from the crockpot and let rest for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Slice against the grain (This will prevent it from being stringy)
