Unraveling the Mystery
You might have some questions before embarking on this culinary adventure, and we’re here to answer them. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any additional queries. Now, let’s dive into the ingredients and style of meat we will be using. While sometimes you don’t have a choice between a flat or point cut, both options are equally delicious.
The Perfect Combination
To create the ultimate Ninja Foodi corned beef and cabbage, gather the following ingredients:
- Foodi or Instant Pot (both work well)
- 3 lbs. of corned beef
- Note: There are different cuts available, such as flat cut and round.
- The seasoning packet comes conveniently tucked inside the bag.
- Potatoes (4 large red potatoes or 2 large russet potatoes)
- While you can substitute water or broth, using beer amplifies the taste.
- Choose your preferred type of beer; I recommend a blonde ale.
- You’ll need 8-10 large top pieces for the dish.
- The remaining cabbage can be used for another recipe or turned into red cabbage coleslaw.
- Onion (optional but a great addition to serve as a side dish with the potatoes)
And don’t forget our mouthwatering mustard sauce to accompany the corned beef once it’s done!
Secret Trivet Trick
Prepare to be amazed because we will be using potatoes as a trivet. Yes, you read that right! The potatoes not only provide support but also absorb all the delicious flavors, turning them into an irresistible treat. Trust me; you won’t be disappointed.
Unleashing the Power of the Ninja Foodi
We will be utilizing the pressure cooker function to cook our corned beef and cabbage, similar to our Ninja Foodi roast recipe. Remember, when placing the meat in the pot, position the fattiest side facing up. This arrangement allows the juices and moisture to melt off, keeping the dish succulent and tender.
While a slow cooker method is equally fantastic, this Ninja Foodi recipe is a time-saving alternative that will leave you with just as impressive results. For those using an Instant Pot, you’ll find the directions very similar.
The Magic of Ninja Foodi
You might be wondering why we use potatoes as trivets instead of the traditional trivet with handles. The answer lies in the extraordinary infusion of flavor that happens when pressure cooker potatoes soak up all the deliciousness within the pot. Brace yourself for an out-of-this-world experience!
Slicing Cabbage with Finesse
Typically, you won’t need to cut the cabbage. Instead, gently peel off the leaves and place them on top of the meat for an added touch of steamed perfection. If you’re on the lookout for more Ninja Foodi recipes, we have a wide array for you to explore.
