Pressure Cooking speeds up the process of cooking Corned Beef

As the title of the recipe suggests Gerri has chosen to use a pressure cooker for this recipe. But you can cook the corned beef in a slow cooker, on the stove top or in an instant pot.

If you’ve never used a pressure cooker, they produce similar results to a slow cooker in a fraction of the time.

  • Slow cooker: Add all ingredients to the slow cooker. Cook on low heat for 7 hours.
  • Stove Top: Follow the first 4 steps of the recipe below. Bring the pot to the boil, then drop to a simmer. Simmer, covered for 3 hours.

How To Make Corned Beef in Pressure Cooker

  1. Rinse and dry the pickled beef with a paper towel. Prepare your ingredients.
  2. Saute in pressure cooker the carrot, onion, thyme and garlic in the olive oil for 4 minutes over high heat.
  3. Add the peppercorns, red wine vinegar and salt and cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the beef and pour over the beef stock. You may need to add a little more water or less stock depending on the size of the beef and pressure cooker. You want the beef to be only just covered.
  5. Bring the stock up to a simmer and fix the pressure cookers lid tightly to the base. Continue cooking on high heat until your pressure cooker begins to release steam.
  6. Drop the heat to low and leave to cook for 2 hours – or 1 hour per 1kg/2.2lb
  7. After 2 hours turn off the heat and leave for 20 minutes to release the pressure slowly.
  8. Carefully open the pressure valve on the lid to release any excess pressure, and take off the lid.
  9. Gently remove the corned beef. If you have a large piece use a set of tongs to grip the meat from the top and a rigid spoon under the bottom to support the weight.
  10. Discard the cooking liquid and vegetables as the contents of the pot is very salty. The liquid can be strained and used a stock to flavour soups if you desire.
  11. Slice up your corned beef and enjoy.

Ingredients For Low Carb Mustard Sauce:

  • Two tablespoons of Dijon Mustard
  • 1.5 Cups of Heavy Cream
  • One Tablespoon of Parsley
  • One Tablespoon of Pepper
  • One Tablespoon of Pepper
  • One Pinch of Salt

How To Make Low Carb Mustard Sauce:

  1. Mix the butter and mustard in a small pan over low heat
  2. Add the cream and mix together. Initially, the butter and the cream will stay separate but will come together as the heat rises.
