This pulled BBQ beef brisket it's the real deal; incredibly flavourful, tender and healthy, thanks to a homemade BBQ sauce!! Ideal for a family feed, or to cook and enjoy leftovers through the week or to freeze for later!! Gluten-free & slow cooker friendly.


Units Scale
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 6 garlic cloves diced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1.2kg chuck roast beef
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1.2 cups Homemade no ketchup bbq sauce*
  • Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) for cooking


  1. Rub all the spices over the meat.

  2. Add EVOO to a deep pot, and sear the meat through all the sides until they're nicely brown (approx 4-5 minutes per side). Set aside.

  3. Add the diced onion, garlic and salt to taste to the pot. Cook on medium heat until it becomes transparent and soft (approx 10 minutes).

  4. Add the beef on top and pour all the stock. Cover with a lid and cook on low heat for 4 hours, or until you can pull apart the meat.

  5. Transfer the meat to a plate and pull apart using a fork. Transfer the pulled meat back to the pot, combine with the juices, and cook on medium heat for 30 minutes without lid, so the water evaporates.

  6. Pour the bbq sauce and mix well to combine. Cook on medium heat without lid for another 30 minutes. It's now ready to enjoy!


  • You can cook this dish in the slow cooker too. After searing the meat and cooking the onions, transfer to the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Then follow the last two steps with the lid on.
  • Don't skip searing the meat!! It's the most important step to ensure a deep and rich flavour.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5-7 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
