Dr. Pepper Brisket (Instant Pot)
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
Dr. Pepper Brisket (Instant Pot) is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Multicooker Monday. We share recipes that use various small appliances, including the Instant Pot, Slow Cooker, and more.
I am sharing my recipe for the brisket with a cooking sauce that translates into a bbq sauce. After it cooks, you can chill that down overnight, lift out the fat, then reduce it.
It is probably better to chill up the brisket anyway, as it makes it easier to slice. So I always do this a day ahead so I can have bbq sandwiches for lunch or even a make-ahead dinner.
Brisket also freezes well if you want to serve the extras later on.

This recipe almost makes me wish that I didn’t loathe my instant pot! Perhaps I’ll have to play around with an oven-roasted version…because it sounds seriously yummy!!!
I’ll have to give this sauce made with Dr. Pepper a try. Thanks Sue.
It’s amazing how soft drinks turn into such delicious sauces. This sounds fabulous.
This sounds great, and an Instapot is on my list of ‘must get soon’ items. Just need to get a bigger house so I’ll have room to store all the fun toys.
You sure you’re not from Texas? 😉 Most Dr. Pepper related recipes seem to come from these parts. I would love one of those juicy sandwiches, Sue!
My Mom’s family is from NE Texas (Dallas, Texarkana,) (also Fouke and Shreveport) but I can’t say I picked it up from them.
The sauce is interesting, amazing idea to use Dr. Pepper. Very creative! I should try it too!
This sounds SO good – I love the tenderness and light sweetness cooking with Dr. Pepper adds to dishes like this!
