Transforming Strength Sweet Sour Brisket Recipe

Slow Cooker Sweet & Sour Brisket is a nutritious and healthy recipe recommended by Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach Matt Hartsky.


  • 2-3 Pounds Beef Brisket
  • 1 Medium onion, sliced
  • 1 (15 ounce ) Can tomato sauce
  • 4 Teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 Teaspoons balsamic vinegar 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • Sprinkle brisket with salt and pepper.
  • Place sliced onion in bottom of a 4 quart slow cooker.
  • Put brisket on top of onion.
  • Whisk together tomato sauce, maple syrup and balsamic vinegar & pour over brisket.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until meat is tender.
  • Slice and serve.

Add vegetables on top of brisket the last hour of cooking. They cook in the sauce and add a good flavor. 

PS. This really doesn’t taste like sweet and sour but had a unique sweet/tomato flavor. 

After removing meat and vegetables from slow cooker there was a lot of juice. To thicken, whisk a tablespoon of corn starch into juice and let it cook a few more minutes.
