  • 1
    Spray 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Layer onion slices in slow cooker. In small bowl, stir chili powder, 1 teaspoon cumin, the paprika, 1 tablespoon salt and the pepper until blended. Rub into brisket; place in slow cooker. Sprinkle any remaining rub on top of meat. In small bowl, stir brown sugar, ketchup, water and cider vinegar until blended. Pour over brisket.
  • 2
    Cover and cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until meat is tender and can easily be sliced.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add coleslaw mix, red pepper and chopped jalapeño chile. Cover; reserve in refrigerator until needed.
  • 4
    Transfer brisket to cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Discard sauce, or heat as directed in tip. Heat boats as directed on package. Thinly slice brisket into small slices to fit into boats; divide among warmed boats, and top with coleslaw. Garnish with sliced jalapeños.

Expert Tips

  • Short of time? Use prepared coleslaw to top these boats.
  • Texas brisket is typically served dry, but if a sauce is desired, take remaining liquid from slow cooker after beef is removed, and skim off the fat. In 2-quart saucepan, cook liquid over high heat until reduced to sauce consistency.
