1 teaspoon black pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced

Combine first 4 ingredients in a 6-quart pressure cooker. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove 1/2 cup of chili sauce mixture from pressure cooker.

Trim fat from brisket. Cut brisket in half crosswise. Rub the brisket with pepper and garlic. Place in pressure cooker. Spoon 1/2 cup chili sauce mixture over brisket.
