  • 4 pounds corned beef brisket
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons pickling spices
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 12 ounces lager-style beer
  • 1 1/2 pounds small red-skinned potatoes
  • 1/2 head green cabbage, cut into wedges
  • 1 pound baby carrots


  • Melted butter
  • Whole Grain Mustard


  • Rinse the corned beef brisket under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Add the sliced onions, garlic, pickling spices, beef broth and beer into the pressure cooker.
  • Place the trivet at the bottom of the pot and place the corned beef brisket on top, fat side up.
  • Close the lid and set the valve to “seal”. Pressure Cook on HIGH pressure for 85 minutes.
  • When done, let the pressure release naturally for 15 minutes then do a quick release to get rid of any remaining pressure.
  • Remove the meat from the pot and let it rest for about 10 minutes, loosely tented with aluminum foil.
  • While the meat is resting, strain the cooking liquid and discard the solids. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the cooking liquid.
  • Pour the strained cooking liquid into the pot, add the potatoes, carrots and cabbage. 
  • Close the lid and set the valve to “seal”. Pressure Cook on HIGH pressure for 3 to 4 minutes (depending on the size of your potatoes).
  • Do a quick release of pressure by setting the valve to "venting". Remove the vegetables from the pressure cooker.
  • Slice the brisket against the grain and serve with the vegetables. 
  • OPTIONAL: Drizzle the vegetables with melted butter and serve with a side of whole grain mustard.
