Why only cook corned beef once a year? It is so darn delicious and simple in the Instant Pot! Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage is going to be your new go to from here on out!
My house is a weird house. Corned Beef is a staple, not just on St. Patrick’s Day! We love it for some reason. I usually stock up my freezer when they go on sale around St. Patrick’s Day then cook them through out the year. My only complaint about cooking yummy corned beef is how LONG it takes both in the crock pot or on the stove.
With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I figured, what better time to conquer Corned Beef and Cabbage in my love (AKA the Instant Pot)! I refuse to be standing over the stove our hovering over the crock pot!
As with everything that goes along with the Instant Pot, it was a bit of a learning process at first to prefect corned beef and cabbage. I originally threw everything in the pot and cooked it on manual for 45 minutes. As you can imagine, my 2.5 pound corned beef was not done and everything else was just mush.
My second attempt went a little better but was still not up to par. I just looked at these like a learning experience and was able to prefect it the third time around.
Tips from my fails:
- If your corned beef is frozen, cook it in the Instant Pot on manual high pressure for about 34 minutes a pound
- Only use LOW Sodium broth or your going to end up with a salt lick
- If your meat is not to the consistence you like it, just close the Instant pot and put it back on manual high pressure for 15 minutes intervals.
- Cook the veggies last or they are going to be soup!
- Cooking your veggies in the broth mixture tastes equally as delicious as boiling them with the meat.
