  • 1 tsp cumin


  • Mix rub ingredients together.
  • Add oil and garlic to Instant Pot and sauté using the sauté setting for 2-3 minutes.
  • Rub brisket on both sides with rub mixture.  Cut brisket in half so it lays flat in the Instant Pot.
  • Pour beef broth into the Instant Pot, around the meat so you don’t wash off the rub.
  • Put on the lid and cook on meat/stew setting for 90 minutes.  Do a 10 minute natural release and then a quick release.
  • Remove meat and place on a cutting board.  Slice meat going against the grain.
