How To Make Corned Beef and Cabbage in the Instant Pot

To cook corned beef and cabbage in the Instant Pot, you need the following ingredients:

  • garlic
  • yellow onions
  • bay leaves
  • chicken or beef broth
  • water
  • corned beef brisket with spice pack
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • carrots
  • red potatoes
  • cabbage

To make this updated twist on the classic Irish dish, start by placing garlic, onion, and bay leaves to the Instant Pot® container and pour broth and water on top. Place the trivet that comes with the Instant Pot® inside the container with the handles positioned up for easy removal.

Next, place the brisket fat-side down on the trivet and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Sprinkle the spice packet that came with the brisket on top.

Add the lid and lock it into place. Set the vent to “Sealing” and select the “Manual” button. Adjust to the “High” setting and set the cook time to 85 minutes.

When cook time is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before doing a quick release on any remaining pressure. Remove brisket by carefully lifting the trivet out by the handles (using potholders) and transfer to a platter. Set aside and keep warm.

Return the trivet to the Instant Pot® and add the carrots, potatoes, and cabbage on top. Cover and lock lid into place. Set the vent to “Sealing” and select the “Manual” button. Adjust cook time to 3 minutes.
