This tender, flavor-packed Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe is made in the Instant Pot. It’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day Dinner and can be on the table in just 1 hour and 30 minutes.
CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
Do you enjoy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by eating a delicious dinner of Corned Beef and Cabbage? We just started making this every year as a family even though I grew up eating it a few times a year. It was a family favorite for me back then.
It wasn’t always one of my favorite dishes to make simply because it took all day. I used to make Slow Cooker Corned Beef with basically the exact same ingredients, but would cook it all day long on low heat so that it would come out tender and juicy. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can make corned beef in your slow cooker.
INSTANT POT CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
With the Instant Pot, I can make the exact same tender and juicy beef, in a lot less time…an hour and a half to be exact! So I feel a lot more motivated to make this dish for the family and I to enjoy on what sometimes can be a busy weeknight and holiday!
Now you can make it to enjoy on the holiday with your family too! It literally could not be any easier…or faster to make this for your St. Patrick’s Day Dinner. And, now that it is so easy, you might find yourself wanting to make it a couple times of year too!
CORN BEEF AND CABBAGE RECIPE
Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe
- 3 lbs corned beef
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 4 cups of water
- 2 bay leaves whole
- 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/2 tsp whole allspice
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 lbs of potatoes quarters
- 2 cups carrots
- 1 head of cabbage cut into slices or wedges
Place rack in the Instant Pot and place corned beef on top of the rack.
Pour the water into the pot.
Add the garlic cloves, bay leaves, mustard seeds, allspice, salt and pepper to the top of the beef.
Seal the Instant Pot lid and the valve.
Cook on high pressure for 90 minutes.
Do a quick release and release all the pressure before opening the lip.
Take out the corned beef and wrap in tinfoil and set aside.
Add the bay leaf and garlic cloves back to the juice if needed (off the top of the beef).
Place potatoes, cabbage and carrots into the pot.
Shut the lid and seal.
Cook for 5 minutes on high pressure.
Do a quick release and open the lid.
Serve immediately with the corned beef.
You can use the spice packet if your corned beef comes with one, for extra flavor, but you don't need to because of the spice already added in the recipe.
