Instant Pot Brisket

Instant Pot Beef Brisket can be to the table in under 2 hours, whereas the traditional smoker grill recipes may take upwards of 10-12 hours. This brisket will taste a little different when compared to the smoker method, but this quick method is a great way to satisfy the craving cook for a BBQ brisket sandwich. When you add this tasty BBQ sauce to the tender brisket, you won’t even care about any subtle differences between pressure cooked or smoked.

Brisket is a challenging cut of beef. It can be difficult to master how to produce tender and juicy brisket. This recipe was developed after several attempts and I believe you willl not be disappointed in how delicious the Beef Brisket method of preparation is. The brisket will be so tender you can separate it using a fork. Urban BBQ has found a new way to get an old recipe to the table. Be sure to get a flat cut beef brisket.

Simply watch the video and follow the instructions below to serve up a comforting old fashioned beef brisket tonight. Let the Instant Pot do all the heavy lifting and just pressure cook to perfection. Feel free to get creative with the sauce, my husband like to add a bit of his favorite Kentucky Mash and apple cider to this recipe when he makes it at home.
