Instant Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage

St. Patricks Day is just a round the corner and according to my dad that means it is time for Corned Beef and Cabbage.  Normally I will find a local place who is fixing it and get it for him, but this year I decided to get it a try in the Instant Pot.  PS….I LOVED IT!

Everything in one pot

The beauty of the instant pot is that you literally can cook everything in one pot.  That means one pot to clean up when everything is all said and done…I so LOVE that!!  OK, well maybe one pot and a cutting board but still minimal cleaning up.

Another great thing about one pot dishes is the flavor that is created.  As it all cooks the flavors really come together, especially in this dish.  The potatoes & onions soak up all the amazing juices from the brisket and then the cabbage and carrots braise in the brisket juice giving everything a ton of flavor.  Each bite is just AMAZING!

Not just for St. Patricks Day

I have always been the girl who would eat corned beef on St. Patricks Day but it was not something I felt the need to eat any other time of year.  That is until now.  

If I would have known how easy and how yummy it is I would have been making this meal a lot more.
