It may be the most famous dish to eat on St. Patrick’s Day, but this Irish-American corned beef recipe is a favorite in my house any time of the year. It would typically simmer all day on the stove but thanks to the pressure cooker it only takes 90 minutes for the meat to come out super tender. Of course, if you wish you could also make this in the slow cooker, see my Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe. Make enough for leftovers so you can make this Corned Beef Hash!

What to serve with corned beef and cabbage:

Cooks Notes:

  • If you have a larger piece of brisket, cut it in half to fit, the cook time will remain the same.
  • To add potatoes, cut them into 1 inch chunks then cook once the brisket is done, high pressure 5 to 7 minutes, natural release. Then add the cabbage and follow step 3.

  1. Amazing!  The meat came out tender & juicy. I used two corned beefs, cut off all fat, & cut each in half. I didn’t have cabbage so I left that out. Followed the recipe otherwise. Whenever I make Corned Beef it seems touch & dry. I will only use this recipe in the future. Thank you. 

  2. I only had 1-1/2# beef brisket. but it burned in the instapot! So disappointing. If I make it again, I will use slow Cooker.

  3. The meat was delicious, but the carrots and parsnips were practically mush.

  4. Made this for St. Patrick’s Day and added the horseradish cream from the other Skinnytaste corned beef recipe. We loved it!💕

  5. Would the same time 1.5 hours be the same for 4 lbs?

  6. I bought a corned beef bottom round instead of brisket and followed this recipe- the meat turned out beautifully fork tender!! I didn’t have all the ingredients so I used the beef, half of spice packet, water and 3 bay leaves. Then cooked cabbage as directed. So delicious thank you!!! 

    • Same here. Could not find the frozen pearl onions at Price Chopper for nothing so I did not add them or regular onions. But, I used all of the spice package included and did not use the peppercorn/bay leaves. Now it is sitting in the Instant Pot for 1.5 hr; hopefully the meat will make sense 🙂

  7. This was perfect! Not to mention easy peasey…. I often feel crock pot corned beef tastes kind of bland and washed out. The meat came out fork tender and delicious. I made the recipe pretty much as is substituting a large chunked up onion for the pearl onions and added a small handful of baby potatoes.

  8. I’m wondering if I got the meat already shredded (bought “lunch meat” ). How would that affect cooking time 

  9. Made this last night. Could only find a 3 lb. brisket at the store. Used the whole thing, but cut it in half and followed the recipe as written. Came out perfect! My husband and I loved it! Thank you, Gina!

  10. I actually think that my husband fell a little more in love with me after I made him this dish. It was that good! 

  11. I have a question – how long should I cook a 5 lb. point cut corned beef brisket in the instant pot?

  12. I have two corned beef briskets that weigh 8 lbs. total, same amount of cooking time?

  13. 3 oz of beef per serving.. is this weighed raw or cooked?

  14. I’ve made this a couple times and absolutely love it!! I can’t find frozen pearl onions so used sweet pickled pearl onions and was delicious! Question though for Gina, why is the IP version of this recipe 1 point less (purple) than the Crock-Pot version?

  15. Made this last night. It was so delicious! My 8 year old said it was his favorite meal ever. haha. The carrots were quite overcooked and turned to mush, but I’m assuming that’s normal. Still tasted good.

  16. Another winner, Gina! Made exactly as written and it was delicious!!!

  17. If using fresh, not frozen, onions, when is the best time to add them?

  18. Hello, wondering if anyone can clarify the time to cook on his. Some say it is way too long for 1.5 hours and others haven’t commented either way. I want it cooked but sure I want it shredded. Ty! 

    • I cooked mine as directed and it came out perfectly! Some of the out pieces broke down a bit, which I found to be delicious. Most of it held together just fine though

  19. This was delicious. I used frozen pearl onions and would put them in with the cabbage next time. My big kids devoured the meat and my little kids devoured the carrots. Thanks Gina!

    • This was delicious. I messed up a bit. I didn’t pay attention to the fact that the cabbage goes in later. The cabbage was still good but I’ll do it right next time. I couldn’t get pearl onions so I just put a quartered white onion in for flavor. Everyone loved it. But it’s worth mentioning that the beef cooks down a LOT.  I’m glad I didn’t plan on feeding more than the 3 of us because there is absolutely no way this feeds 6. I used 2 lbs and got 3 fist sized portions out of it. Next time I’ll make a bigger one so we have leftovers.
