Brisket, sauerkraut & horseradish cream


  • Heat a little oil in a pressure cooker and gently sauté the bacon for a few minutes until it begins to crisp, continually stirring. 
  • Add the onion and garlic. Stir and cook until tender. 
  • Place the beef on top, fat side up. Season quite well, spread a layer of sauerkraut on top and pour over the wine and stock. Cover, bring to pressure and cook on high for 8 mins. Then turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1½ hours. Turn off the cooker and set aside for 30 mins, still covered
  • Mix together the sour cream, horseradish cream and chives. 
  • Serve the sliced brisket on a bed of sauerkraut with a dollop of horseradish cream on top.
