  • 1 yellow onion quartered
  • 2 pounds corned beef flat cut
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 12 ounces dark beer
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 small cabbage quartered
  • 6 small red potatoes halved
  • 5 carrots cut into large chunks


  • Rinse or pat the meat with a paper towel to remove some of the brine
  • Add the onion to the pot, and place the corned beef on top
  • Spread mustard over the beef, then sprinkle the seasoning packet over the beef and into the pot
  • Pour the beer into the pot, and add water
  • Cover, and turn valve to Sealing position, and hit PRESSURE COOK for 75 minutes (115)
  • Pot will take a few minutes to reach pressure then begin counting down and cook. Allow a 15 minute release, then turn valve to Venting to quick release remaining pressure
  • When pin drops, carefully open lid, and remove beef to a large platter. Cover with foil
  • Remove some of the cooking liquid, leaving at least 1 cup for the 6 quart or 2 cups for the 8. Place the trivet or steamer basket into the pot, and add potatoes, carrots and cabbage
  • Add lid, turn valve to sealing, and hit PRESSURE COOK for 4 minutes
  • When cook time is up, do a quick release. When pin drops, remove lid and carefully remove vegetables. Arrange on a platter with the corned beef, and serve


Recipe was tested in both 6 and 8 quart Instant Pot electric pressure cookers.
If using a much larger cut of beef, cook for 90 minutes.
