How to prepare INSTANT POT BRISKET ?


Preparation time: 2 hrs 

Cooking time: 1 hr 55 mins 

Serving: 4


  • 5 - 2 pounds (766g) beef brisket (2 inches thick)
  • 3 – 5 drops liquid smoke

      Dry Rub

  • 2 tablespoons (26g) brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (5g) chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoons (4g) black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon (2.4g) onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon (2.8g) garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon (3g) cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon (6g) coarse kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon (1g) cumin seed, ground
  • ½ teaspoon (1g) fennel seed, ground
  • ¼ teaspoon (0.5g) cayenne pepper

      BBQ Sauce

  • 1 (205g) medium onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup (250ml) ketchup
  • ½ cup (125ml) unsalted chicken stock or water
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) honey
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon (13g) brown sugar


  1. In a glass mixing bowl, mix dry rub ingredients together. Rub the dry rub mixture on the brisket, then let it marinate for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight, so the salt can penetrate into the meat).
  2. Add sliced onion, minced garlic, 1 tbsp. (15ml) maple syrup, 1 tbsp. (15ml) honey, 2 tbsp. (30ml) apple cider vinegar, 3 - 5 drops liquid smoke and ½ cup (125ml) unsalted chicken stock to Instant Pot. Mix well. Add marinated brisket in Instant Pot. Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 75 minutes and Natural Release for 15 minutes. Remove the lid carefully.
  3. Carefully place cooked brisket on a chopping board and let it rest. If desired, use a fat separator to remove the oil from the BBQ sauce. Bring the BBQ sauce back to a simmer by pressing the "Cancel" button, then "Saute" button. Mix in 1 cup (250ml) ketchup, 2 tbsp. (30g) Dijon mustard, and 1 tbsp. (13g) brown sugar in Instant Pot. Let the BBQ sauce thicken by simmering for 8 - 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. Taste and adjust the seasoning with more salt if necessary.
  4. Serve Instant Pot Brisket with Yummy BBQ Sauce: Generously brush the addictively yummy BBQ sauce all over the brisket. If desired, use a blowtorch or oven (broil) to slightly caramelize the BBQ sauce on the brisket. Slice your brisket against the grain to maximize tenderness. If you didn't marinate the brisket long enough, sprinkle some salt on the sliced briskets to season them better. Serve with the awesome BBQ sauce. Your delicious & beautiful BBQ Brisket is ready to serve!
