Spicy Mexican-style beef brisket cooked in a pressure cooker. Delicious! Serve with warm corn tortillas, sliced avocado, cilantro, and black beans.

Directions

  1. Place the tomatillos, chipotle peppers, tomato sauce, water, salt, and brown sugar in the work bowl of a food processor, and blend until smooth. Set the mixture aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pressure cooker with the lid off over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onions are translucent, about 3 minutes. Drop the brisket into the pressure cooker, and sear it on both sides. Pour the tomatillo mixture over the brisket, bring to a boil, and place the lid on the cooker. When the pressure comes up, set the heat so the cooker develops medium pressure, and cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  3. Allow the cooker to release pressure on its own (without using the quick-release), and remove the brisket. Serve hot, with tomatillo sauce on the side.

SUPER SPICY! My kids could not eat it. I tried to add several tablespoons of brown sugar to cut the spice, it didn't work. My husband and I loved it! We ate it with fried corn tortillas, guacamole and cheese. I served it with Chi Chi's corn mush/casserole - it was the perfect compliment of sweet to go with the spicy.

Delicious, but yes, it was spicy. Thanks for the warning! I used half of the can of chipotles and it was still a little spicy but we loved it.

This dish is fantastic. Very spicy, easy to make, the pressure cooker makes the brisket super-tender. A family pleaser.
