3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

1 1/2 tablespoons chipotle chile powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon celery salt

1 clove garlic, minced

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

4 1/2 to 5 pounds point-cut beef brisket, trimmed (fat cap intact)

1 1/4 cups ketchup

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Potato salad and cornbread, for serving (optional)


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and cook, undisturbed, until they start to color, about 5 minutes. Stir and continue cooking until golden, about 3 more minutes. Add the red onion and jalapeno; season with salt and cook, stirring, 3 minutes. Stir in the brisket and cook until heated through. Add 3/4 cup brisket sauce and cook, stirring, until absorbed, about 3 minutes. 
  2. Stir in the Swiss chard until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt, then arrange the sliced cheese on top. Cook until the cheese begins to melt, about 1 more minute.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Brisket

  1. Combine the brown sugar, chile powder, cumin, celery salt, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Rub all over the brisket, then transfer to a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker. Combine 3/4 cup ketchup, the vinegar and Worcestershire sauce in another small bowl. Pour over the brisket along with 3/4 cup water. Cover and cook on low, 8 hours.
  2. Remove the brisket to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes. Meanwhile, skim off the excess fat from the sauce; stir in the remaining 1/2 cup ketchup. Reserve one-third of the brisket (about 12 ounces) and 1 cup of the brisket sauce for Southwestern Brisket Hash. Slice the remaining brisket and divide among plates. Top with some of the sauce and serve with potato salad and cornbread.
