What You'll Need:

1 pound new baby potatoes (about 12)
1 onion, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
1 (3-pound) beef brisket, trimmed
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 cup brewed black coffee
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup light brown sugar

What To Do:

In a 6-quart slow cooker, place the potatoes, onion, and carrots. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper and place over vegetables.

Cover and cook on low 8 to 9 hours, or until beef is fork-tender. Slice beef across grain; serve with vegetables and sauce.
