Ingredients

  • 1 fresh beef brisket (2-1/2 to 3 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke, optional
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 can (12 ounces) beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

Cut brisket in half; rub with liquid smoke, if desired, along with celery salt, pepper and salt. Place brisket fatty side up in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Top with onion. Combine beer and Worcestershire sauce; pour over meat. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 50 minutes. When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions.
Remove brisket, cover with foil and keep warm. Strain cooking juices, then return juices to pressure cooker. Select saute setting, and adjust for high heat; bring liquid to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into juices. Cook and stir until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve with beef. Yield: 6 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • This is a fresh beef brisket, not corned beef.
  • Liquid smoke is a great addition to this recipe as it adds depth of flavor. Be careful not to overdo it; a small amount goes a long way.
  • Look for liquid smoke in your grocery store near the spices and marinades.
