Pressure Cooker Corned Beef
"This recipe is from the Australian Women's Weekly Pressure Cooker cook book with a few minor alterations. I love corned beef but the DH would only tolerate it occasionally (maybe twice a year) but done this way he likes it and is quite happy to eat it once a month. If you get a larger piece of corned beef we have found that the cooking time needs to be increased (when we initially did a slightly larger one we didn't need to adjust the time but as we have been using 2K ones we have found we need to increase the time by 20 minutes). I cook this in an electric pressure cooker and in mine it takes 20 to 25 minutes to come up to pressure so have included this in the cooking time plus the 15 minutes resting time. UPDATE - our butcher no longer brines his own corned beef and gets it in from an outside supplier and we have found we have had to up the cooking time by 10 minutes to get the same beautiful results, so have changed the recipe to reflect that."

Perfectly cooked corned beef. Never used the pressure cooker for corned beef, usually bake it or in slow cooker, but this is now my favorite method. And QUICK! I cooked potatoes and cabbage separately and pour the cooking liquid over the vegies to.... Read more
- 1 1/2 kg corned beef (3 pounds)
- 1 brown onion (150 grams)
- 8 cloves
- 2 bay leaves
- 8 black peppercorns
- 1 carrot (120 grams coarsely chopped)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons malt vinegar
- 2 sprigs basil
- 1 litre water (to cover corned beef)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Wash corned beef under cold water and put to one side.
Peel onion and stud with the cloves.
Put a little water in the pressure cooker and put in malt vinegar and sugar and stir to dissolve and then add all other ingredients with enough water to just cover the corned beef, bring up to pressure if using stove top (or set timer on an electric and let it do it work), for stove top once up to pressure adjust heat and cook for 55 minutes.
Do quick release (for stove top run cold water over pressure cooker) and for electric follow manual instructions (I just flick the pressure switch and it releases), remove lid and let corned beef sit for 15 minutes in the water, remove slice and enjoy.
