Making brisket is usually an all-day—or, if you prefer a slow-cooker, an all-night—affair. The notoriously tough piece of meat typically needs to cook for hours before it becomes the delectable, fork-tender treat we know it can be.

Admit it: A brisket can try a person's patience.

But fear not, friends. Guy Fieri, the spiky-haired TV chef who serves as the mayor of Flavortown, will have you saying, "Holy Brisket, Batman," as only he would, when you try this recipe.

You see, Fieri suggests using a pressure cooker—not an oven, grill, or slow-cooker—and by doing so, he says you can reduce your cooking time to a mere half an hour.

A brisket in half an hour? That's crazy, you say. Fieri would beg to disagree.


Fieri promises that half an hour in a pressure cooker will produce the most amazing brisket this side of Texas—or Passover—depending where your brisket affinities lie. He suggests you finish your brisket off with a buttered brioche bun, and "un peu de coleslaw de broccoli," because Fieri is beaucoup Francais, y'all.

We're confident that if you give this brisket recipe a whirl, you'll not only be sitting down to an awesome brisket very, very soon; you'll also be a pressure-cooker devotee from here on out.
