This Instant Pot Corned Beef with Cabbage is a St. Paddy's Day and New Year's Eve tradition, but it's so easy to make in the Instant Pot, we have it year round. The flavors go together perfectly. Find the corned beef in the packaged meat section in most supermarkets. So delicious!

  • Instant Pot


  • 3 lb corned beef brisket 3 - 4 lbs, with spice packet
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 lb potatoes baby red, quartered
  • 1 lb carrots 3 to 4 large, peeled, cut into 1" pieces

  • Let pressure release naturally for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and carefully transfer beef to a carving board and tent with foil.
  • Remove 2 cups of the water from the Instant Pot and set aside. Carefully discard the remaining water (use oven mitts to do this).
  • Add the 2 cups of water back into the Instant Pot.
  • Place a steamer basket in the pot and add the potatoes, then carrots, then cabbage, in that order.
  • Secure the lid on the Instant Pot and STEAM on HIGH for 5 minutes.

  • Slice the beef against the grain and place the vegetables around the meat.
  • Lightly salt and pepper the veggies. Serve at once!



The cooked corned beef is wonderful the following day.  
The beef and vegetables will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  The brisket will freeze for up to 2 months.  We don't recommend freezing the vegetables as they will break down during the freezing process.
