This was the first time I EVER made Corned Beef in my life, let alone Corned Beef brisket in the pressure cooker.
There’s a little bit of a back story to my dismay of Corned Beef. It started as a young child. You see, I am half Italian and half Irish..a 50/50 split down the middle. There is no doubt the Italian side dominated my food pallet. Shocking right:) I can remember growing up my grandmother cooking up corned beef in her pressure cooker on the stove. The house stunk for days after. It literally would make me gag. However, I still ate it, or I should say choked it down. Now give me a ravioli and meatball and there never was a choke down.
Being the good wife that I am, I know my husband enjoys corned beef. So I thought I would try it in the pressure cooker. How bad could it stink up the house? Not at all actually and that alone was thrilling.
I admit I was a bit intimidated to try this dish. Rumor has it, it can turn out like an old worn shoe.
My first attempt was a WIN!~ My husband actually said it was restaurant quality. What did I think? I thought, I am not touching that stuff. I made a side of spaghetti:)
Thanks for stopping by Home pressure cooking today. I would love for you to join me over at our Home pressure cooking Facebook page where I drag my hubster in the kitchen with me at least once a week.
I also wrote my own little helpful pressure cooker cookbook guide including 30 meals for 30 days.
Rinse the corned beef under cold water.
First put the seasoning packet, beef broth, onion and garlic in to the pressure cooking pot. Put a rack in the pressure cooking pot. Place corned beef on rack.
Lock the lid in place. Select High Pressure and set the timer for 75 minutes. When beep sounds, turn off pressure cooker. Use a natural pressure release for 10 minutes, and then do a quick pressure release to release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove lid. Always remember to remove the lid away from your face. The steam can get ya!
Remove the rack and brisket from the pressure cooking pot. Set aside the corned beef and wrap aluminum foil on top until ready to serve. Add the potatoes, carrots and cabbage to the broth in the pressure cooking pot. Lock the lid in place and select High Pressure and set the timer for 4 minutes. If your potatoes at that point still are not quite ready, simply hit saute method for a few more minutes.
