You can never have too many main course recipes, so give Cola-Braised Brisket Head to the store and pick up brown sugar, canned tomatoes, vegetable oil, and a few other things to make it today. To use up the light brown sugar you could follow this main course with the Apricot tart with brown sugar & cinnamon pas
Combine brown sugar, salt, paprika, onion powder and pepper in a small bowl. Rub mixture all over brisket.
Warm oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook brisket until browned on all sides, turning with tongs, about 7 minutes total.
Transfer meat to slow cooker.
Arrange onions on top of brisket.
Whisk together cola and tomatoes in a large bowl and pour over onions and brisket. Cover and cook on low until meat is fork-tender, 7 to 8 hours.
Transfer meat to a cutting board and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
Remove gravy from slow cooker. Slice meat against the grain and serve with gravy.
