This used to be a slow cooker meal that would take a full day to make… but now I have adapted it for the pressure cooker and the process now takes far less time. This is my go-to recipe for pot roast on a busy weekday. It uses inexpensive cuts of meat, namely beef chuck, made posh by the slow cooker. After years of tweaking others’ recipes I think I found a good mix of high-quality pot roast while still being very quick and easy.
- 1 (6 pound) beef brisket, trimmed of fat
- 2 (16 ounce) jars dill pickle spears
- 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
Place brisket in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour dill pickle spears and pickle juice over the beef; add barbeque sauce.
Cook on High until beef shreds easily with 2 forks, about 6 hours.
