Instant Pot Corned Beef With Braised Cabbage is the perfect traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner to make for your family. 

It’s perfectly juicy, tender and is how we have celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in our family since I was a child. 
Believe it or not corned beef is not a traditional Irish dish but it is a traditional Irish-American dish.
The best part about this recipe is how stinking easy it is! I mean it’s ridiculously easy. 
With the help of the Instant Pot you can have a delicious corned beef on the table in no time at all! 

What is corned beef?

Corned beef is a salt cured beef brisket. It’s seasoned with flavorings and cured in a salt brine. It yields a pinkish meat from the nitrates added to cure the meat. 

Do I rinse corned beef before cooking?

Ways to serve corned beef:

I love serving corned beef with the braised cabbage recipe below, but another great idea is to use the leftovers in a grilled cheese or hot sandwich. Shave the corned beef very thin, top with sauerkraut and add some delicious provolone cheese. Sandwich it all in between some rye bread and you got a winner.
