Did you make it? Rate it!

    I have had great success with your Instant Pot recipes. I would like to make this beef brisket with a 1 lb piece of meat. How long should I cook? Can I use the same amount of fluid to make gravy?
    Thank you.

      Hi Mary,

      Yes, you can make this with a 1-pound piece of meat! The amount of cooking liquid can remain the same — don’t use less, or the pot may not come up to pressure properly. I would cut back on the salt a bit (3/4 teaspoon instead of 1 1/2 teaspoons).

      If you’re still using brisket, just a smaller piece, I’d leave the cooking time the same.

    This recipe did not work at all in a standard pressure cooker. In fact I ended up with a completely ruined piece of meat. :(

      Hi, Melanie! I’m so sorry this didn’t work for you! Can you let me know a little more about what happened? Was the meat over cooked or undercooked? Did you make any changes or adjustments to the recipe? What brand of pressure cooker were you using? Thank you!

    How would you do this recipe with a stovetop (non-electric) pressure cooker?

    • Emma Christensen

      Hi, Rebecca! The stovetop pressure cooker instructions are included in the recipe, in parentheses. Hope that helps!

    Where do the carrots come into play. No mention of them at all.

    This is good. I also use mine for other tuff pieces of meat. I do beef heart the same way as the brisket, sear and cook. One can also “reverse sear” if you want a more seared flavor and look on the meat. Just place brisket in the highest oven temp that you can for a bout 6-8 min after cooking do not sear the first time. I aso cook chicken gizzards seared then cooked and make a strogonoff gravey with sour cream paprika mustard etc and place over egg noodles. Gizzard stroganoff sounds funny but is delishous and very tender.

      Hi Michael, I bet gizzard stroganoff is great, I love chicken gizzards!

        Gizzards were a common school lunch item in the 50’s. Loved them. How about a recipe for gizzard stroganoff?

    I have a traditional Italian “Lagostina” pressure cooker which I use very often mainly for soups. I have never cooked meat in it. Thanks for this delicious recipe, this brisket looks fantastic!

    Your Beef Brisket is mouthwatering!
    Pressure cooker meals are wonderful. More flavor and cook faster too!
