It’s time for one of the most underrated culinary events of the year—St Patrick’s Day! This Mid-March holiday typically involves parades and beer—but in my house we spend the day at home feasting on our favorite Irish American Dish—Corned Beef and cabbage.

We go all out on the 17th. My husband spends the day teaching our girls about his Irish Heritage—which also includes copious amounts of Irish butter on homemade bread while we prep the star of the show—our corned beef.
If you’ve never had a proper corned beef you’re in for a treat. You’ll be amazed how similar it is to great, thickly sliced pastrami. Don’t forget to save some leftovers to make Corned Beef Hash!

    Strain the cooking liquid to remove the garlic and onions, then pour 2 Cups of cooking liquid back into the pot. Place the Carrots into the pot first, then the Red Potatoes and stack the Cabbage wedges on top of them. Seal the lid and choose High Pressure for 3 Minutes, when the timer is up immediately switch the knob to venting and when the pin drops open the lid and strain the veggies. Place the brisket fat side up on a cutting board, sprinkle on some ground black pepper and slice against the grain and serve with the potatoes, carrots and cabbage. Enjoy!
