- Dry all moisture off of the brisket with a few paper towels. Season each side of the roast generously with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the brisket to the skillet. Sear on all sides for 3-4 minutes each, or until a gorgeous brown crust forms on each side. Place the seared brisket in the slow cooker.
- Add the garlic cloves and thyme to the skillet and turn the heat down to medium. Cook the herbs until fragrant and the garlic is turning golden, about 2 minutes.
- Add all ingredients to the slow cooker with the brisket. Cover and cook the brisket on low for 6-8 hours. (Use the lower end of that timeframe for sliceable meat and the higher end for shred-able meat.) Serve drizzled with the broth it cooked in. Yum!
