Cola-Braised Brisket

Here was another keeper.  Easy and yummy - a great combo for a recipe!!  I got it from the March 30, 2012 issue of All You Magazine

Cola-Braised Brisket

2 Tbsp. packed light brown sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sweet paprika
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. pepper
1 4 lb. beef brisket, trimmed
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
4 onions, thinly sliced
2 cups cola
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes

1.  Combine brown sugar, salt, paprika, onion powder and pepper in a small bowl.  Rub mixture all over brisket.

2.  Warm oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Cook brisket until browned on all sides, turning with tongs, about 7 minutes total.  Transfer meat to slow cooker.

3.  Arrange onions on top of brisket.  Whisk together cola and tomatoes in a large bowl and pour over onions and brisket.  Cover and cook on low until meat is fork-tender, about 7-8 hours.

4.  Transfer meat to a cutting board and allow to stand for 10 minutes.  Remove gravy from slow cooker.  Slice meat against the grain and serve with gravy.
