Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

Why cook corned beef in the Instant Pot? If you are asking me this, it is because your pressure cooker is going to give you a tender and moist corned beef that will blow you away! 

When you use your pressure cooker for corned beef it locks in the moisture making it juicy and not dry. Then it tenderizes the tough meat in a fraction of the time!

What Is Corned Beef Made Out Of

Brisket. Corned beef is brisket that you add spices and seasoning to. Most corned beef you buy in the store has a little packet of spices and seasoning you can just jump right in! 

Or if you want to ensure the flavor is what you want you can create your own blend. 

Is Corned Beef Tough

If you do not cook your corned beef long enough or properly it will result in incredibly tough meat, 

The instant pot really does a great job of breaking the meat down, infusing flavor, and giving you the best corned beef and cabbage to serve up!

Do You Rinse Corned Beef Before Cooking It

You will find corned beef feels a little slimy when you pull it out of the package. You can toss it in the pressure cooker as is, or give it a rinse if you prefer. 

When cooking with corned beef you do not have to rinse it before you start cooking. Rinsing will remove excess salt to offer a more mild flavor. 

How Do You Know When Corned Beef Is Done Cooking

You want to look for an internal temperature of 145 degrees when cooking. Also, you will find that when your corned beef is done the meat will become tender. If you check your meat and it is still tough, it won’t hurt to cook a bit longer. 

The thing to remember is if your corned beef is larger than mine in weight it could take longer to cook. Just use your judgment and make sure to use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. 

How To Store Leftover Corned Beef And Cabbage 

If you have leftovers just place them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. You will want to use your best judgment if you store it longer than that. 

So don’t wait and try my corned beef in the pressure cooker today. It is one incredible and fool-proof way to cook up a corned beef for perfection every single time.

Why does corned beef always look reddish and like it’s still raw. I can’t get past the look as I like things well done. Is there a way to make it look done?
