It’s that time of the year……St. Patrick’s Day.
We wear green, drink Guiness (unless you are like me and are gluten intolerant) and eat Corned beef and cabbage!
Did you grow up like me, eating corned beef and cabbage every year around this yEither you love it, or you hate it. Either way, you can’t argue with the nutritional density of the ingredients: Grass-fed beef, cabbage, onions, carrots, celery, potatoes and beef stock…….YUM!
The even nicer part about this recipe, is that by using the InstantPot you can cut down MAJORLY on the cooking time!!! The InstantPot version of corned beef takes only 90 minutes to cook, compared to anywhere from 4-8 hours. I’d say that alone is a WIN!
Let me know if you get a chance to try out this super simple recipe, and what you want to see me make next time!
AKOS InstantPot Corned Beef and Cabbage
- 3 lb corned beef
- 1 seasoning packet
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 5 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 cups beef stock or beef bone broth
- 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
- 4 Japanese Yams, cut in 2″ pieces
- 8 carrots, cut into thirds
- Small head of green cabbage, cut into wedges
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Rinse the brisket with cold water and pat dry.
- Place onions in the bottom of the InstantPot and place the brisket (fat side up) on top. Rub with brown sugar and spice mixture and top with garlic. Pour in the beef broth to the side, making sure not to pour over the meat.
- Select manual pressure and set the timer for 90 minutes.
- After cooking time has finished, let InstantPot naturally release pressure for 10-15 minutes, then do a quick release of any remaining pressure, being sure to protect your hand with a towel or hot pad.
- Remove the brisket and onions and place on a platter to rest, covering the platter with aluminum foil.
- Strain the InstantPot liquid and discard herbs, returning liquid to the InstantPot.
- Add the potatoes, carrots, celery and cabbage, in that order. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Cook on manual pressure for 5 minutes. Let pressure naturally release for 5 minutes and then do a quick release of any remaining pressure, be sure to protect your hands (I know I already said it, but I have done this before, and trust me, it isn’t very fun.)
- Thinly Slice corned beef against the grain and serve with the potatoes, carrots, celery and cabbage. ENJOY!
