Paddy’s Day Take Two!

Testing the Instant Pot theory of corned beef in 90 minutes! 

So it was pretty tender, a little tough in some places. Taste was great! Fat didn’t render enough. Definitely not the same as a low and slow 8 hours in the slow cooker.

After some discussion with a friend about the power levels on the various settings, we decided that the online recipe that Instant Pot has is off on the timing a bit. The pressure settings are “Dual pressure settings: High 10.2 ~ 11.6psi (70 ~ 80kPa); Low 5.8 ~7.2 psi (40 ~ 50kpa). Up to 240 minutes.” Instant Pots cook at a lower pressure that traditional stovetop pressure cookers do. Electric 12.5 on high vs stovetop 15.

So the next time I do a corned beef, I’ll run it at High Pressure for a longer period of time. Maybe 2 to 2.5 hours to get the meat really tender.
