Simple Slow-Cooker Brisket & Hearty Brisket Tacos

I’m a big time brisket fan. It started out as one of our traditional Jewish holiday menu items for my family, and has slowly evolved into a meal that I love to throw in my crock-pot anytime of year. Plus, it makes really, really awesome tacos, and fabulous breakfast when paired with eggs!

Hanukkah is approaching and whether you eat brisket on this holiday or not, or whether you celebrate or not, I thought it would be the perfect time to share with you my super simple, super flavorful brisket recipe!

    Pumpkin BBQ Sauce

    Over the summer I brought you guys a Sweet and Smoky BBQ Sauce. That recipe is seriously one of my favorites. BBQ Shredded Chicken Lettuce Cups, grilled chicken, and so on. It’s easy, and the perfect condiment to spice up your lunches- without an of the junk.

    BUT, since Fall is in full swing, I wanted a BBQ sauce with a little more Fall flavor going on. Pumpkin + BBQ Sauce = perfection! Less smoky than my other, and more Fall flavors… WIN!

    Slather this on some meatballs and serve for Football Sunday. That’s what I did! Options are endless.

    One-Pan Fiesta Chicken and Sausage

    I can’t believe September is here. It’s always a big month for me. The start of the new school year, the transition into the fall, my birthday, and the Jewish Holidays where my family gets together. A big month, indeed.

    While the Fall transition into pumpkin and apple recipes is slowly creeping, the tomatoes are still growing, the basil and cucumbers taking over, and the fact that it’s still 80+ degrees here is keeping me grounded for a few more weeks. I just can’t force it… yet. What I CAN definitely do though is bring some one-pan, crock-pot, and 20-minute meals to the blog to help with this busy back-to-school month!onepanfiestachicken

     

    This dish is a huge favorite. It’s super simple and so flavorful. You need: one pan and 20 minutes! Easy as that.

    Sloppy Joes

    Lexi's Clean Kitchen

    I have this thing with sloppy joes. I’ve always just LOVED them. It’s a unique take on flavor, plus it’s messy. When the bread gets soggy from the sauce… perfection!

    Paleo Sloppy Joes | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

    This is some seriously delicious comfort food, and a family favorite! Serve them on top of my paleo rolls for a deliciously satisfying meal.

    Paleo Sloppy Joes | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

    I love how easily these come together! Just twenty minutes, one-pan and BOOM. Comfort food perfection.

    I love topping these with jalapeños, roughly chopped lettuce, sliced red onion and tomatoes but these are delicious all on their own as well!

      Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

      Since we moved into our home in June, and now have a porch with a nice grill on it, you can bet I’ll be out there grilling as long as I can. I’ll likely get a heat lamp to extend the season, that’s for sure. I love all burgers, but especially Salmon burgers. They are packed with nutrients, and you can customize the flavors in totally different ways. Since my trip to the Muir Glen Farms I am even more into tomatoes then before, and these burgers give just a touch of that delicious flavor.

      Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

      These burgers have just the right amount of flavor. They are bursting with scallions, jalapeños, and fresh garlic- and go fantastic with some homemade guacamole and fixins’, if you ask me!
