What’s the first food that comes to mind when you think of St. Patrick’s day? For me, corned beef and cabbage. But who am I kidding, you can have this any time of the year.

Corned beef is a salt cured beef brisket. The name corned comes from the curing of the beef with large rock salt which is also known as corns of salt.

Traditional corned beef takes 10 days to make as you have to cure the meat. Grocery stores sell pre-cured meat. Cook time on these meats are generally 50-60 minutes per pound.

Not to worry as you can make this in the Instant Pot and cut down cook times. Yay!

The Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker and one of my favorite countertop appliances. This is the one that I use.

  1. I love finding recipes for my instant pot that I wouldn’t normally think of like corned beef! I’m not a huge fan of corned beef but my husband is so I make it for him. Now I’m glad I can make it in the instant pot so it doesn’t take forever! Thank you

  2. How long should I pressure cook in my instant pot if I am using 4 lbs of corned beef? Also thinking of adding half of more onions, carrots, and potatoes since I am using a pound more of meat.
