With Saint Patrick’s day coming up this weekend, we are up to our knees in cabbages and potatoes.

I’ve been cooking all sorts of authentic Irish, and Irish-inspired, dishes like Sweet Irish Soda Bread, Baileys Irish Cream Jello Shots, Pub Cheese, Irish Potato Pie, and Boxties with Whiskey Gravy.

However, I’m really excited to share this easy Irish mash-up recipe with you today!

Perfect Pressure Cooker Corned Beef Cabbage Irish Stew Recipe (Instant Pot for Saint Patrick's Day!)

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!

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Trim the fat off the corned beef. Then cut the beef into 1 inch chunks. Chop all the vegetables.
  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    Dang, this looks delicious! I’m definitely going to be making this very soon!

    WOW! That is a lot of sodium! I’m guessing the sodium is coming from the meat preservative, cheese, and added salt? If i purchase fresh meat from a farm or butcher, should be less sodium, right? Also, i am dairy intolerant. will have see if i can find a suitable dairy-free match. Hopefully it will be lower in sodium, too..not gonna hold my breath. LOL.

      Hi Anna,

      Yes, corned beef is a splurge on the sodium for sure. I hope you can find dairy-free cheese. :)

    Hello and thank you for sharing this recipe> But does the corned beef have to be flat? Why Corned beef flat? Can any of the cut corned beef be used?

    • Sommerposted March 15, 2018 at 1:45 pm Reply

      Hi Raquel,

      Yes, you can use other cuts of corned beef. The corned beef brisket is what I found at ALDI. :)

      Hi Katie,

      Yes, it just needs to cook long and low. Maybe up to 10 hours.
