Default Slow cooker beef brisket - can I prep in advance?

I'm planning to serve slow cooked beef brisket on Easter Sunday, but I'd like to prep as much as possible on Saturday. We need to leave for church before 9 am , we'll be home at about 1 and I'd like us to be eating by 2 (though I will have a simple starter for children who can't wait that long!). I want to brown the meat before it goes in the slow cooker, and that's what I want to do the day before. Could I brown it, cool it and put it in the fridge to save time on Sunday morning?

Default Re: Slow cooker beef brisket - can I prep in advance?

I'm not sure. I usually won't brown or partially cook a piece of meat, refrigerate it, and then finish cooking it. You could, however, completely cook the brisket on Saturday and then heat it in the slow cooker with a little broth for Sunday. My mom makes brisket all of the time and cooks it ahead, freezes it and then reheats it.

Thank you. I didn't think of that. If I cooked it on Saturday, how much time would it take to reheat, do you think?

I think it would heat fairly quickly, but I've heated already cooked brisket on low with some broth so it doesn't dry out for about 3-4 hours or so with no problem.

I should clarify that I reheat in the slow cooker on low, not the oven.
