Love Chili? Love Brisket? Here’s a super simple recipe for Brisket Chili in the Instant Pot!
Recently, a friend recommended me trying the Instant Pot for cooking. Now, I know that they have been the craze for a while, but I’m not usually one to jump on a fad, and frankly I have more than enough cooking gadgets at my house. However, I decided to get one, and there it sat on my counter, forlorn and forgotten, as I didn’t have anything I was just dying to try in it.
Snow Days make you want Comfort Food!
We’ve had a bad patch of weather here lately, and it has really been playing havoc with my schedule. I did cook a brisket a couple of days previously, just to try out a new smoker. As it was just the fam around, I had plenty of leftovers. So, another snow day (enough already!) and I decided to break out the instant pot and make a brisket chili! Bam! Multiple goals in one meal accomplished- use leftover brisket, try out instant pot, and have a warming meal!
Beans, Beans, Beans
I am not a fan of canned beans, though I am forced to occasionally use them. However, armed with my new appliance I wanted to test it out, so went with dried beans (unsoaked- remember this is kind of a spur of the moment thing here!)
Dried beans are super easy in the instant pot. Basically, wash and sort them, then just give them a run through the “bean” cycle with stock (I use 4 cups liquid per 1 lb beans.) Then, add remaining ingredients and run through another bean cycle and voila! You have dinner!
