I love corned beef and cabbage. It was a recipe my mom made every year around St. Patricks Day and it takes me back to my childhood every time I eat it. If you are making this recipe for St. Patricks’s day, you may also want to make a batch of rainbow pancakes and rainbow cereal bars. You may also like our recipe for Ninja Foodi Whole Chicken.

Corned Beef and Cabbage in the Ninja Foodi

This recipe is really where the Ninja Foodi shines. It is the best of both worlds – pressure cooker and air fryer. It gives you juicy meat with the perfect amount of crispness. I hope you enjoy it!

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 brand of 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 it’s time to use the crisp lid, transfer the dish to your oven and broil for a few minutes, until crispy. 

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