Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage


Dinner, InstaPot, Main Dish


3 to 4 Pound Corned Beef

1 Onion Cut in Quarters

2 Stalks Celery cut in Half

1 tsp. Minced Garlic

2 Bay Leaves

2 Cups Beef Broth

1 Head Green Cabbage Cut in Quarters

1 Pound Baking Potatoes or Red Potatoes

4 Carrots Cut on Bias in 2 to 3-inch pieces


Rinse corned beef well. Reserve seasoning packet.

Cut onion into quarters and put in the Instant Pot. Put bay leaves in the Instant Pot. Put the trivet in the Instant pot on top of onions. Put corned beef in instant pot fat side up. Pour beef broth over corned beef.

Add seasoning pack to the top of Corned Beef.

Put the lid on top of the Instant Pot and close valve

Pressure cook corned beef (on high) 75 minutes and do a Natural Pressure Release

If cooking a corned beef bigger than 3 pounds add 10 minutes of pressure cook time for every pound over 3 pounds.

Once pressure is released remove corned beef from the Instant pot.

Cut cabbage into six wedges and add to instant pot with carrots and potatoes. Put the lid back onto Instant Pot close valve and pressure cook vegetables for 3 minutes. When cooking time is complete do an instant pressure release.

Cut the fat off of the top of corned beef. Turn corned beef over so the fat side is down and slice the corned beef against the grain into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices and serve.


Michelle notes:
This was amazing. Everybody loved it. Even the veggies were infused with flavor. Did not bother cutting the fat off before serving. Cooked the veggies for 4 minutes, but I suspect 3 is probably fine. For a 4 lb corned beef I cooked it for 85 minutes as per the directions.

IF you don't naturally release, you must cook it for longer.


If you would like a more TENDER corned beef pressure cook 90 Minutes.
