Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

Are you tired of only enjoying corned beef once a year? Well, prepare to have your taste buds tantalized! Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage is not only incredibly delicious but also incredibly easy to make. This recipe will become your go-to favorite in no time!

Let’s face it, corned beef is simply irresistible. At my house, it’s not just a St. Patrick’s Day treat – it’s a staple we enjoy all year round. I always stock up on corned beef when it goes on sale, so I have a freezer full of this flavorful delight whenever I want it. My only complaint? The traditional cooking methods take forever, whether it’s in the crockpot or on the stove.

But fear not! With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I decided it was time to conquer Corned Beef and Cabbage using my beloved Instant Pot. No more standing over the stove or hovering over the slow cooker for hours on end!

Now, let me tell you, it took a bit of trial and error to perfect this recipe. During my first attempt, I threw everything into the pot and cooked it on manual mode for 45 minutes. Unfortunately, my 2.5 pound corned beef was still not done, and everything else turned into mush. But hey, we learn from our mistakes, right?

The second try was a slight improvement, but it still wasn’t up to my standards. But I persevered because I was determined to get it right. And on my third attempt, I finally nailed it!

Tips for Perfect Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

  • If your corned beef is frozen, cook it in the Instant Pot on manual high pressure for about 34 minutes per pound.
  • Be sure to use LOW sodium broth to avoid an overly salty dish.
  • If the meat is not done to your liking, simply close the Instant Pot and put it back on manual high pressure for 15-minute intervals.
  • Cook the veggies separately to prevent them from turning into soup.
  • Alternatively, you can cook the veggies in the broth mixture, which adds an extra layer of deliciousness.

If you adore St. Patrick’s Day or simply can’t resist the allure of juicy corned beef, you must give this recipe a try. Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage is a triple win – it’s scrumptious, fuss-free, and guaranteed to please your taste buds!
