Time Lapse Tuesday: Revisiting Corned Beef

Pressure Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

St. Pattie’s day is coming, and I wanted to improve my Pressure Cooker corned beef recipe. That recipe was a pain to get right. The big piece of corned beef would not cook through in the pressure cooker. I kept increasing the time – 45 minutes, 60 minutes, 75 minutes…eventually I had to go to 90 minutes to get it to cook through.

(That big piece of corned beef is dense, and it takes a long time for the heat to penetrate into the middle, even under pressure.)

But…what if I tried the trick I learned when making my pressure cooker pot roast recipe, and cut the corned beef into smaller pieces? If I’m going to slice it when it comes out of the cooker, why not cut it before I put it in the cooker?

It took a few tries to get the timing right – corned beef is stubborn that way – but a corned beef cut into 4 pieces cooked in 60 minutes. That’s 30 minutes cut off of the cooking time! Also, I could fit a larger, 4 pound corned beef brisket into the pot – I could jigsaw the pieces into the cooker.

Check it out – my new, improved corned beef method:

    Looking forward to trying this. I tried your previous recipe & made a huge mess of it! My corned beef was undercooked, so I put it back with the veggies & way overcooked them (my fault). The corned beef was perfect though, but it was like eating delicious corned beef with mushy baby-food veggies!

    Hello Mike,
    I found your site when I was looking for a recipe to cook a 3 lb corned beef in my XL pressure cooker. I have to thank you, yours turned out perfectly! I cooked it for 70 minutes with a slow release and it was tender and flavorful. I covered it with water as you suggested in your post so it wasn’t too salty either.
    Thanks for your site, I look forward to trying out more of the recipes!
