6 Favorite St. Patrick's Day Dishes for Your Instant Pot

1. Instant Pot® Corned Beef

Cooking a gnarly slab of brisket usually takes hours in the oven or slow cooker, but your Instant Pot can do it in a fraction of the time. "If you'd like to do a complete Irish feast, remove the trivet while your brisket is resting and place baby carrots, quartered red potatoes, and cabbage wedges in the bottom of the Instant Pot. Secure the lid, lock, seal, and select the manual setting. Set for 5 minutes. Do a quick release. The rested brisket and vegetables are ready at the same time." — Soup Loving Nicole
