  • 1 large sweet onion (such as Vidalia, Maui, or Walla Walla), cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices and separated into rings (1 cup)
  • 1 2- to 2 1/2-pound fresh beef brisket or boneless beef bottom round roast
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 dried thyme, marjoram, or oregano, crushed
  • 1/2 black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cup lower-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium red or green sweet pepper, sliced
  • 1 16-ounce loaf whole grain baguette-style bread, cut crosswise into 6 pieces and halved lengthwise, or 6 whole grain hoagie buns, split, and, if desired, toasted


Step 1

Place onions in a 3 1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker lined with a Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liner. Trim separable fat from beef. If necessary, cut beef to fit cooker. Place beef on top of onions.

Step 2

Sprinkle with garlic, thyme, and pepper. Pour beef broth, water, and Worcestershire sauce over all.

Step 3

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 9 to 10 hours for brisket or 8 to 9 hours for bottom round or on high-heat setting for 4 1/2 to 5 hours for brisket or 4 to 4 1/2 hours for bottom round. Add red pepper to the slow cooker to soften slightly.

Step 4

Transfer meat to a cutting board; thinly slice across the grain, removing any visible fat as you slice.

Step 5

Using a slotted spoon, remove onions and red pepper from cooker.

Step 6

Divide sliced brisket and onion and pepper slices among bread bottoms. Add bread tops.

Step 7

Skim fat from cooking juices in cooker; pass juices for dipping sandwiches.
