Dry Rub:

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup ketchup

    • In a small bowl, combine the dry rub ingredients (salt, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, celery seed, and pepper).
    • Rub the mixture over the beef brisket.
  2. Marinate:
    • Place the brisket in a 3-quart slow cooker. Let it sit in the slow cooker for at least an hour.
    • If possible, refrigerate the slow cooker overnight to allow the beef to absorb the spices from the rub.

  4. Cook:

    • Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 8 hours, or until the meat is tender.
  5. Serve:
    • Slice the meat against the grain. The brisket should be tender and falling apart.
    • Serve with the reserved sauce.

Weight Watchers Points Estimation

To estimate Weight Watchers points, we need to consider the nutritional values of the ingredients used in the recipe. Here’s a rough estimation:

Dry Rub (negligible points):

  • Spices and herbs generally have minimal points.

Sauce (estimated total points):

  • Ketchup: ~3 points for 1/2 cup
  • Chili sauce: ~3 points for 1/2 cup
  • Brown sugar: ~4 points for 1/8 cup
  • Cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Liquid Smoke, ground mustard, A1 sauce: Minimal points, roughly 1 point combined

Beef Brisket:

  • The points for beef brisket can vary based on the cut and fat content. On average, cooked brisket has about 7 points per 3 ounces.

Total Points Calculation:

  • Dry Rub: 0 points
  • Sauce: ~11 points (total for the entire amount)
  • Beef Brisket: Assuming a 2 lb brisket (~32 ounces), we have approximately 74 points for the meat (7 points per 3 ounces).

Total Points for the Entire Dish: 85 points (approximation)

  • Per Serving (assuming 8 servings): ~10-11 points per serving

This is a rough estimation and can vary based on specific brands and measurements. For accurate tracking, it’s best to use the exact ingredients and input them into the Weight Watchers calculator.
