We’ve updated this post to answer common reader questions about how to make corned beef and cabbage and a video so you can see for yourself how easy it really is. Enjoy!

What is corned beef? Let’s start with the basics: what exactly

is corned beef?

No, it has nothing to do with corn. Rather, corned beef is a breast cured with salt to turn into corned beef.

(“Corn” refers to the large rock salt “tripe” traditionally used to cure meat. This curing process keeps the flesh perfectly moist and gives it a characteristic pink color.)

Growing up, I avoided corned beef altogether; for some reason, I expected gummy canned meats, rather than the tender, juicy breast it really is.

Even my fussy daughter was amazed at how tasty and delicious this Instant Pot corned beef turned out


How to choose the right cut of meat?

For this recipe for canned beef and cabbage from Instant Pot, look for flat-cut corned beef breast. Usually, this is a fairly uniform and flat piece of meat that will cook more evenly than the punctually cut breast.

The flat-cut breast also makes a more pleasant presentation than the spot cut breast. In addition, the layer of fat at the bottom of the cut melts in the pressure cooker to create silky and tasty juices for this dish.

💡 For best results, start with meat that has a uniform thickness. This ensures that your meat is cooked thoroughly and evenly in the pressure cooker.

If you end up with a portion of meat that’s too big for your pressure cooker, simply cut the breast in half or into smaller pieces and place it as best you can inside the bowl. Do not crush the meat inside.

How to Make Canned Beef and Cabbage in ANY Brand of Electric Pressure Cooker This

corned beef and cabbage


will work on any brand of electric pressure cooker, including the instant pressure cooker, Ninja Foodi, or Power Pressure Cooker XL.

  1. Start by rinsing your cut of meat in cold water. This removes any excess salt from curing.
  2. Next, combine the seasoning, onion and garlic in your pressure cooker. Place the meat on the rack over the aromatics. (Note: The rack isn’t necessary, but it makes removing the meat a little easier.)
  3. Then pour a liter of meat broth. The broth should come at least half of the sides of the meat in your pot.
  4. Now, simply seal the lid and cook under high pressure for 90 minutes. After a natural pressure release of 10 minutes, you can change the lever to make a quick release. When you remove the lid, be prepared for a fantastic release of delicious, smelling steam.
  5. Carefully transfer meat to a seating area while cooking potatoes, carrots, and cabbage. Vegetables have a cooking time of 3 minutes in the pressure cooker, so you won’t have to wait too long.

It is important to cook the vegetables after the meat is finished because 90 minutes in a pressure cooker will turn your delicate potatoes and carrots into total porridge.

By separating into two different pressure cooking times, we can use the tasty cooking liquid of the meat to cook the vegetables, which acquire all that tasty flavor without cooking too much.

Do I use the corned seasoning package?

The key is to use the pack of seasonings that can come

with your breast cut.

If your breast doesn’t come with a spice pack, choose a tasty pickled spice blend. McCormick makes an excellent blend of pickled spices that you can find in most grocery stores.

Or you can make your own seasoning with this recipe. You may already have all the spices on hand
