Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe Instant Pot

corned beef and cabbage instant pot recipe

A corned beef and cabbage recipe in the Instant Pot without beer! This recipe is chocked full of corned beef brisket, cabbage, carrots and potatoes – yum!

Now don’t get me wrong – I freaking love beer. But making this version of my Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe means I can share all the food love with my gluten free friends and family.

Because I think we’ll all agree, food tastes better when it’s shared with others!

I love that this recipe can be made in my newest favorite appliance, an Instant Pot. Now, Instant Pot is just a brand name for an electronic or programmable pressure cooker.

It’s kinda like how we call everything in our house a “kleenex” when the real term should be facial tissues. But I think we all know that no one calls it facial tissues.

I could go down a real rabbit hole here, but I’ll get back on track!

Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe Instant Pot

I love the convenience of cooking corned beef and cabbage in the Instant Pot. Corned beef and cabbage has a very distinct smell and although I love to eat it, I don’t like to smell it for three days.

To make this recipe, you’ll need a six or eight quart Instant Pot. I’m just calling it that because it seems to be “the” term that everyone uses it.

But if you have a Yeti pressure cooker, a Crockpot pressure cooker – yes, this still alllll applies to you!

My Instant Pot is a little on the older side and the trivet that came with it is just a flat, footed metal piece. Word on the street is that the newer models have a container with handles that can flip up.

If you have an Instant Pot like me, we can easily remedy this problem with an Instant Pot sling. Don’t worry, it’s not a one-trick pony!

You will need it for things like Instant Pot lasagna and Instant Pot cheesecake too.

The point is, we’re gonna start by placing a trivet with handles in your pot.

So let’s get started…

How to Make Instant Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage

STEP 1:

Add the trivet with handles to your Instant Pot.

Add garlic, onion, and bay leaves to your container. Add the broth.

STEP 2:

Place the brisket fat-side down on the trivet and season with salt and black pepper. I like to go light on the salt because corned beef is generally on the salty side.

Sprinkle the spice packet that came with the brisket on top.

Add the lid and lock into place. Set the vent to “Sealing” and select the “Manual” button.

Set the cook time to 85 minutes.

STEP 3:

This is the perfect time to prep your carrots, potatoes, and cabbage. I’m allllll about time saving, friends!

Speaking of which, you can save time by using a bag of baby carrots instead of peeling carrots, if you like.

When the cook time is complete, let the pressure release naturally for about 10 minutes. Basically, just let it hang out.

Then, do a quick release by turning the spigot to venting to let any other pressure out.

Remove the corned beef brisket by carefully lifting the trivet out by the handles. Be sure to use potholders because it’s gonna be hot! Put the corned beef on a platter and set somewhere to keep it warm.

I set mine in the microwave but maybe that’s totally weird. I don’t know!! 😉

STEP 4:

Return the trivet to the Instant Pot and add the carrots, potatoes, and cabbage on top. You’ve got them ready to go, don’t you!?! GO YOU!!!

Cover and lock lid the lid back into place. Set the vent to “Sealing” and select the “Manual” button. Adjust the cook time down to 3 minutes.

When cook time is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes before doing a quick release for the remaining pressure.

Transfer the cooked vegetables to the serving platter with the corned beef. Slice the beef against the grain and serve immediately along with the vegetables.
