❤️ Why You’ll Love This Recipe

If you have been hanging around for a long time, you know that I share lots and lots of instant pot recipes and even published an instant pot cookbook

But the Ninja Foodi has become extremely popular with its pressure cooker/air fryer combination. It really is awesome!

Can I make it in the instant pot?

Now, if you don’t have a Ninja Food or crisp lid, I am also including a workaround for making this in your instant pot or other pressure cooker. 

If you want to make corned beef and cabbage in your instant pot pressure cooker, follow the pressure cooker directions as explained below. When using the crisp lid, transfer the dish to your oven and broil for a few minutes, until crispy. 

Alternatively, if you own an air fryer, you can transfer it to your air fryer and follow the directions and laid out below.

  1. I have made this before and it is fantastic. This year I bought a 6lb corned beef – how much longer do you recommend cooking it?

  2. 5 stars
    Such an amazing base for this recipe. It can be tailored and tweaked to fit many pallets and tastes.

    We love this method and have not had a bad meal prepped in the Foodi yet.

    This was so flavorful and savory I cannot rave enough about it.

  3. Could you please update the recipe with the desired temp settings? I am assuming you mean high for 75min so that is what I am trying but you don’t indicate temp with pressure settings or crisping setting.

  4. We decided we wanted to make Reuben sandwiches insta4d of potato, cabbage and carrots. We did not do glaze but OH MY GOSH, this is YUMMY!!!

  5. This was delicious! I made it for my Boyfriend 10 year old nephew and they both loved it!y boyfriend had actually never had corned beef and cabbage. He said it was full of flavor! So true! The balsamic really shines. The veggies were perfectly cooked and very flavorful as well as they cook in all that flavorful stock. Made with Irish soda bread which was also a big hit! Will make again!
