Both of my daughters are vegetarians. I developed this simple vegetarian Hoppin’ John recipe for them. It can be used as a base for additional ingredients according to personal preference. This recipe was submitted to the Harvard College Dining Services and was selected as a vegetarian option for the student dining halls.
- 1 (6 pound) beef brisket, trimmed of fat
- 2 (16 ounce) jars dill pickle spears
- 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
Place brisket in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour dill pickle spears and pickle juice over the beef; add barbeque sauce.
Cook on High until beef shreds easily with 2 forks, about 6 hours.
