How to Make Instant Pot Brisket

  1. Prepare the rub: In a small bowl, combine all of the rub ingredients and stir to combine.
  2. Rub the spice mixture over and into the surface of the brisket. Refrigerate for 4-24 hours and remove from the refrigerator 30-45 minutes before cooking.

  4. Select the ‘Saute’ function on the Instant Pot and add oil. Brown the brisket on each side for 2 minutes.
