  5. In a separate pan, heat over medium heat and add remaining tablespoon of olive oil.
  6. Saute onions until golden brown.
  7. Add brisket, fatty side down into your slow cooker or Instant Pot.
  8. On top of the brisket, place the cooked onion, minced garlic, tomatoes, stock and add a bit more salt and pepper.
  9. Cook on the slow cook setting in your Instant Pot for 6 hours.
  10. Cooking the meat for 6 hours will allow you to slice it for a nice presentation. If you like your meat more tender so that it completely falls apart, cook for 8 hours total.
