    Cool, I thought you might have one of the smoker sized 6 pounders!:)

    Try this:

    Ingredients:

    Either 3-4 Tbsp Vegetable oil, or trimmed Brisket fat
    2 Lbs Brisket, Trimmed and cut into 1/2-3/4" pieces
    2 Lg. Onions, Cut into 1" pieces
    3 Lg.. Carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
    3 Lg. Stallks Celery, Cut into 3/4" pieces
    12-14 Baby red Potatoes, cut in half
    3 Cloves Fresh Garlic, minced
    4 Cups Beef Stock
    3 Tbsp Worchershire sauce
    1 32 oz bottle V-8
    2 Tbsp Kosher or Sea salt
    1 Tbsp Fresh ground black pepper
    5 Tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
    1/4 Cup All Purpose flour

    Directions:

    In Large Stockpot, heat oil or trimmed Brisket fat on medium high until heated.
    Brown Brisket pieces,
    Then add garlic. Stir until garlic releases its aroma,
    Add Celery, Onions and Carrots. Stir gently for about 5 minutes.

    Add Beef Stock, Salt, Pepper, Worchershire sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
    Simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.

    Add potatoes and V-8 juice, raise heat back to a low boil for 20 minutes, covered. Add parsley and reduce to a simmer again, covered, for about 15 minutes

    In a separate bowl, whisk flour into 2 Cups cold water.

    Remove lid from pot, and gently whisk in flour slurry, bit at a time, allowing time for liquid to thicken.

    Hola ye of wondrous cooking skills and knowledge!
    Question -- Is the Instant Pot product line as good as advertised?
    Are there other similar devices in the market which are less expensive but just as good?
    What say ye?

    I have a Farberware.

    I've had the opportunity to try the InstaPot,, as well as a few others.

    I found that that the Farberware does the same as the others, for half the price.

    I paid $45 for mine, and I use it VERY often. As a matter of fact, I'm making my Char-Shu Ribs tomorrow. (My recipe is in this thread)

    It's a shame that you can't eat that, Mr. Bill.

    It's one of my favorite dishes
