Instant Pot® Corned Beef

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Corned beef used to be a weekend only treat for me due to how long it took to cook, until I discovered the Instant Pot®. Save yourself time and hassle by letting your Instant Pot® do all of the work for you, and in a fraction of the time. You can have it and all of the fixings on your table in 2 hours. If you decide to fix cabbage, be sure to keep it in large wedges so that it does not overcook."

Perfect recipe for making the most tender corned beef. 90 minutes works every time in the IP! Since my beef was missing the spice packet, I used my own spice mix. I used Two Brother's Gluten Fre...

This is probably the best corned beef I’ve ever had. I used hard cider instead of beer (it’s what I had, and I don’t like beer anyway) and it was absolutely delicious. So tender and flavorful! A...
