For the Horseradish Cream Sauce


  1. Place brisket in the pressure cooker pot.  Add beef broth, onion, garlic, parsley, bay leaves, and the contents of the seasoning packet if it was included with your brisket package (if not, add peppercorns).  Stir lightly so most everything is sitting in the broth.  Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 90 minutes.
  2. While the meat cooks, make the Horseradish Cream Sauce by mixing all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.  Can be made up to 3 days in advance if desired.
  3. When pressure cooking is complete, use a natural release (could also use a natural release for 10 minutes and then quick release the rest by turning the knob).
  4. Carefully remove meat, place it on a cutting board, and cover with foil and a kitchen towel to keep warm.  Strain the liquid into a large bowl (or I like to use a large fat separator so my liquid won’t be so greasy).  Discard the solids and pour the liquid back into the pressure cooker pot.  Add carrots, parsnips, cabbage, and potatoes.  Again secure the lid and turn the pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 6 minutes.
  5. When cooking is complete, use a quick release.
  6. Slice meat or cut into chunks and pour a bit of the cooking liquid over top.
  7. To serve, place meat on a plate with a scoop of veggies.  Drizzle meat with the Horseradish Cream Sauce and ENJOY!

Freezer Instructions

  1. I’ve not tried this yet, but I suspect you could trim and freeze the brisket, then cook for the same 90 minutes at High Pressure as written above.  I will update here once I’ve tried it!
