Instant Pot Texas Brisket Chili

Texan brisket in the instant-pot Chili is an all-beef, no-bean stew that is simmered until meltingly tender in broth, chiles, seasonings, tomatoes, and a touch of liquid smoke. Talk taste!

Instant pot Texas brisket chili

For a taste combination unlike any other, the Instant Pot Texas Brisket Chili contains a ton of garlic and onions, a variety of seasonings, two kinds of chiles, and liquid smoke. Because of the Instant Pot, the beef practically melts in your mouth and has an earthy, intensely savory flavor.

Just to be clear, you won’t find any beans here. This one only contains beef, unlike the original. But don’t let that stop you from experimenting with different vegetables, bacon additions, and other variants that we’ll discuss later. Prepare to compete for the leftovers because this dish grows better with time.
