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.

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.

I have a new pressure cooker and was looking for a fun recipe to try - and this was it! I couldn't find canned tomatillos at my grocer so we bought a pound of regular tomatillos - and that worke...

We just got an electric pressure cooker so I tried this recipe. The only change I had to make was to use fresh tomatillos since I couldn't find canned (I softened them up in a skillet then foll...

No brisker available so we used top round and a pressure cooler. Just phenomenal!

This is my third time to make it and my family loves it each time!! I had to cut back the chipotle for my kids, and i take some of the cooked sauce and use it to make quinoa with it as a side di...
