Pressure Cooker "Barbecued" Brisket

Mikekey *


This is a great recipe for cold weather, when you crave bbq but don't want to grill. Serve on rolls with coleslaw, or as is with corn and sweet potato fries or mashed potatoes. This is for a stove-top type cooker, so make adjustments if using an electric cooker.
