Pulled beef brisket

From Cookipedia

I thought I would try various way of making pulled beef. Pork works very well in the slow cooker so I'm trying a version of Slow roast beef brisket with Guinness.

This version has far less ingredients than the original and is much simper as it is cooked in a slow cooker.

Lovely meat from Brian Tweed & Son. Congratulations on the butchery; I asked for a kilo or thereabouts and he cut it by sight and when weighed, it came out at 1000.5 grams!
