With Saint Patrick’s day coming up this weekend, we are up to our knees in cabbages and potatoes.
However, I’m really excited to share this easy Irish mash-up recipe with you today!
Secretly, I love corned beef in recipes, but have never been a big fan of the stand-alone Irish Corned Beef and Cabbage. (There must be something wrong with me.)
I’m crazy over corned beef hash and corned beef sandwiches. I’ve even had corned beef pizza and egg rolls before that were both truly spectacular.
My detachment to traditional corn beef and cabbage comes from the fact that most people over cook their beef, leaving the texture dry and grassy in texture.
Therefore this year I decided to make a not-so-authentic dish, combining the best attributes of both Corned Beef and Cabbage, and traditional Irish Stew.
Plus, I made it in an electric pressure cooker (Instant Pot) for speed and easy clean up!
This Pressure Cooker Corned Beef Cabbage Irish Stew recipe is simple to make and has all the elements we love to enjoy on Saint Paddie’s Day… Corned beef, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and a swirl of cheese to thicken and flavor the broth.
Because the corned beef is cooked in the broth and served in the broth, is stays ultra moist. So tender in fact, that it nearly melts in your mouth!
It’s easy to over do it around the holidays and wear yourself out, trying to make the perfect meal. This Saint Patrick’s Day, simplify by making one soup that has it all.
If you pair this Pressure Cooker Corned Beef Cabbage Irish Stew with a loaf of Irish bread and a stout beer, you have a meal all your friends will adore. Best of all, you’ll get to celebrate with them, instead of fussing over an elaborate meal while everyone else is having a good time.

Start by sautéing onions in an electric pressure cooker. Trim the corned beef and cut it into cubes.
Then brown the corned beef in the same pot.
Top the corned beef with mini golden potatoes, carrots, roughly chopped cabbage, thyme and water.
Pressure cook the soup for 30 minutes to soften the meat, cook the veggies, and create a rich rustic broth.
Then stir in some shredded Dubliner cheese to thicken the broth. Heaven in a bowl!

Pressure Cooker Corned Beef Cabbage Irish Stew
- 2 pounds Cattlemen’s Ranch Flat Cut Corned Beef Brisket Flats
- 2 tablespoons Countryside Creamery Unsalted Butter
- 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 pound mini golden potatoes, halved
- 3 carrots, sliced
- 3 cups roughly chopped cabbage
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon Stonemill Thyme Leaves
- 6 cups water
- 6 ounces Dubliner Cheese, or Specially Selected Aged Reserved White Cheddar
- 4 teaspoons Baker’s Corner Corn Starch
- Stonemill Salt and Pepper
- Trim the fat off the corned beef. Then cut the beef into 1 inch chunks. Chop all the vegetables.
Place the butter (or oil) in the base of an electric pressure cooker and set on Sauté. Add the chopped onions, and soften for 2-3 minutes. Then add the corned beef chunks and the included seasoning packet to the pot. Brown the meat for 3-5 minutes.
Add the potatoes, carrots, cabbage, thyme, and water to the pot. Lock the lid into place, and set on Pressure Cook High for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, shred the Dubliner cheese and toss it with the cornstarch, and set aside.
Turn off the pressure cooker, and perform a Quick Release . Once the steam valve button drops, you can safely remove the lid. If you didn't trim the fat well enough, there could be a thin layer of fat on the top of the soup. If needed, skim off the fat with a large spoon.
Turn the pressure cooker back on Sauté and stir in the cheese. Once the cheese has melted and the broth thickens, taste, then salt and pepper as needed.
