How you doin’? Beef brisket is a tough cut of meat—one of the toughest—that can be cooked in a number of different styles. If cooked properly, brisket can be broken down into a cut of meat that is flavorful, tender, and buttery rich Texas-style barbecue—Yum!
Traditional Texas-style barbecue smoked brisket is usually prepared by rubbing the brisket with a dry spice rub, then smoking the beef slowly with over charcoal or wood for 10 to 12 hours at 212⁰ F.
My Instant Pot Beef Brisket can’t replace a good Texas-style barbecue smoked brisket completely—nothing can—but it’s an awesome shortcut and great alternative when you don’t have access to a grill, smoker or the time to do it.
You won’t be able to help but fall in love with this tender beef and great texture, bursting with moist and juicy beefy flavors. Plus the super yummy smoky, sweet, savory, spicy homemade barbecue sauce.
This recipe will save you time and hassle to meet your craving for deliciously gorgeous brisket, without any of the smokehouse clean-up.

ChefSecrets: It ain’t no secret—always slice your brisket against the grain to maximize tenderness; and serve your sauce on the side.
