If you’re looking for the best Instant Pot Brisket, you’ve found it with this Instant Pot Tender Brisket and Gravy recipe!
There are a couple of things that I know must be pretty clear at this point when it comes to this blog.
- I’m more than a little in love with my Instant Pot lately. Since half of my family received them for Christmas, I’ve been extra motivated to develop more recipes for it.
- I’m clearly a fan of beef brisket recipes. I just can’t get enough of a good piece of brisket. Cooked properly, they have amazing flavor and absolutely melt in your mouth. One of the first recipes that I ever posted was this Belgian-Ale Braised Brisket (please ignore how utterly atrocious the pictures are, so embarrassing to see now!), and my favorite meal that my mom makes is this
But judging from the fact that these recipes have been going crazy in the Instant Pot Facebook group, you guys are enjoying the overload of Instant Pot recipes just as much as I am. A win-win for everyone!
Now on to the recipe.
As stated before, I am a huge fan of brisket. But as with any tender meat, it needs to be cooked for a looooong time. In fact, my Slow Cooker Brisket and Gravy needs to be slow cooked on low for 8 hours. So, in sticking with my Instant Pot theme lately, I ventured to make it in the Instant Pot. I was able to cut the time down to just about an hour and 15 minutes. That’s a far cry from 8 hours, and not a lot of time considering how tender and delicious it turned out!
What to serve with Instant Pot Brisket
- My family always serves this dish with a side of either Creamy Whipped Potatoes or Garlic Mashed Potatoes. However, you could also serve with egg noodles (top them with some extra gravy and they would be divine.)
- Because this meal is so rich and carb-heavy with the gravy and potatoes (or noodles,) I also like to serve with some broccoli or even a leafy salad.
