What Is Corned Beef?

Corned beef can be made with brisket or round, but brisket is my favorite since it tends to be more tender.

This is another version for the Instant Pot Corned Beef recipe.

The “corning” process is a salt cure, and the name comes from the large pieces, or “corns,” of salt.

Salt curing is actually common in many countries, with roots in British, Irish, and Eastern European cuisine.

Can I Replace the Beef with Chicken?

Yes, but then you will have Instant Pot Chicken Stew :]

You can also try Instant Pot Lamb Stew and Instant Pot Pork stew.

All are great comfort food recipes to add to your collection.

Can I Use Regular Carrots?

This recipe calls for baby carrots to make prep easier, but yes, you could easily substitute regular carrots.

Just peel and cut them into bite-sized pieces.

To cut whole carrots, I like to cut them in half lengthwise and then slice them to create half-moon shapes.

Another fun cut for carrots is known as the oblique cut, in which you roll the carrot in quarter turns and cut on a diagonal to make a sort of rounded triangle shape.

This is just for added visual appeal—any cut of a similar size will work!

How to serve?

  • To keep it low-carb I like to serve it with cauliflower mash, or Sauteed Brussels Sprouts.
  • Also great with roasted or boiled red potatoes, Yukon potatoes.
  • Try them with these Whole Wheat Soda Bread Muffins.

What Type of Potatoes Should I Use?

For the regular potatoes, you can use any medium-sized potato—red potatoes, white potatoes, Russet, or Yukon gold will all work well.

This recipe is very flexible, which is part of its appeal.

    1. A pork loin roast that size should only take about 20 minutes (+ a natural release). Seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic is a great start.

  1. Can't wait to try this. What should I do with the seasoning packet that's included with the corned beef?

    1. It's probably a blend of pickling spices, so you could pickle something! Probably peppercorns, mustard seeds... Pickled cucumbers would be great.

  2. First time user of the instant pot. I made this today and it was so good. The corn beef was so tender and did not take long at all. I am hooked on the instant pot!!!
