MAKES: 4-6 servings


  • 4 cups water
  • 1 corned beef brisket with spice packet (2 pounds)
  • 1 medium head cabbage, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 large red potatoes, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 4 large carrots, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 2-inch pieces


  1. In a 6-qt. pressure cooker, combine water and contents of corned beef seasoning packet; add beef. Close cover securely; place pressure regulator on vent pipe. Bring cooker to full pressure over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 45 minutes. (Pressure regulator should maintain a slow steady rocking motion; adjust heat if needed.)
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the cabbage, potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add carrots and onion. Cover and simmer 20-25 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender; drain.
  3. Remove pressure cooker from the heat; allow pressure to drop on its own. Remove beef to a serving platter. Discard cooking liquid. Serve beef with cabbage, potatoes, carrots and onion. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"Very easy recipe. I wish that you could just throw everything in the pressure cooker but I bet the veggies would be too mushy. I used the leftovers to make Rueben's the next day. What a great way to honor St. Patrick's Day!"
