- Dry the brisket off on all sides with a few paper towels and season it generously with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. When the oil is hot, add the brisket to the pan and sear it for about 3 minutes on each side.
- Add the seared brisket, garlic cloves, balsamic vinegar, and thyme to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
- When the brisket is done, slice it thinly and allow it to cool for a little bit before using it in the tacos.
- To assemble the tacos, add a slice or two of brisket, some red cabbage, a tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt (or unsweetened whipped coconut cream), shredded cheese (optional), chopped cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice in between the folds of a large leaf of romaine lettuce.
- Fold the lettuce over and enjoy!
