"Spicy Mexican-style beef brisket cooked in a pressure cooker. Delicious! Serve with warm corn tortillas, sliced avocado, cilantro, and black beans.
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
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.
This dish is fantastic. Very spicy, easy to make, the pressure cooker makes the brisket super-tender. A family pleaser.
I thought ( and so did my hubby and his friend, who are both foodies) that this was great!! I used a chuck roast instead of a brisket because it was on sale, and I cooked it in my crock pot. I did sautee the onions and garlic first, and seasoned and seared the meat as well before putting it in my crockpot on top of a layer of thick sliced potatoes and onions (you can remove them later if you want, but we kept it in the with shredded meat and it was awesome). I blended all of the ingredients following the recipe exactly except that i used 2 cans of tomatillo sauce instead of whole tomatillos and also i used dos equis amber to replace the water ( you could also use beef broth too, which I did add a bit of as well). Cooked for 5-6 hours. We made home made corn tortillas and black beans and rice. Finished off the rest of the Dos Equis...Awesome dinner!!! I will definately be making this again!!
I've made this with brisket and with pork tenderloin, and I prefer it with pork. I don't own a pressure cooker so I make it in the crockpot - turns out great. One can of chipotle peppers is really really spicy, so I use about half - still a little too much for me but Husband loves it. (he says the leftovers are even better the next day) Thanks!
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 worked fine! Also, my pressure cooker isn't the type that goes on the stove, it is a stand alone unit and it didn't have a "medium" pressure setting - so I just cooked it on high for an hour instead and it was perfect! The chipotle spice was perfect for my husband and I - but if I cooked this for the kids I would need to cut WAY back :) -
I will make this recipe again for sure. This would probably work with any large cut of meat - though the brisket was a great way to go. VERY minimal prep and the pressure cooker does the work for you. Wonderful!
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 followed the recipe). The brisket turned out tender, tasty and fast. Don't be afraid to use the entire can of chipotle peppers since the heat cooks out quite a bit. Excellent recipe but I think I'll keep making it with fresh tomatillos as they seemed to add a good tang to it!
No brisker available so we used top round and a pressure cooler. Just phenomenal!
