Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Cook onions, brown
sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt until onions are golden, 10-12 minutes. Stir in tomato
paste and flour and cook until darkened, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and cook until
fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in broth and cook until sauce thickens, about 4
minutes. Off heat, stir in 2 tablespoons vinegar and transfer mixture to bowl.

Combine 1 teaspoon salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne in bowl.
Using fork, prick brisket all over. Rub spice mixture over brisket and wrap tightly in

brisket. Set slow cooker to low, cover, and cook until brisket is fork-tender, 9 to 10
hours (or cook on high for 5 to 6 hours). Turn cooker off and allow brisket to rest
for 30 minutes.

Transfer brisket to cutting board, cut across grain into 1/2-inch slices, and transfer
to serving platter. Tent with foil. Pour sauce into large skillet, discard herbs, and
simmer over high heat until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Skim fat, add
remaining vinegar, then pour half of sauce over brisket. Serve with remaining sauce on
side.
