Instant Pot Corned Beef with Beer

OK, I’m not Irish. I can’t even claim the least little bit, but every year on St. Patrick’s Day, I pretend I have a wee bit of Irish in me. I love all the traditions and the wearing of the green, so it is fun to take part anyway and just pretend for a day. I love corned beef, just like any good Irish girl would, and I just learned how to make Irish Soda bread too – so I must have some Irish hidden in me somewhere.

I’ve made this deliciousness in the crockpot and is a great option when you’re away from the house all day. I’ve included the instructions in the notes section of the recipe card. However, I wanted to try making it with my new favorite appliance, the Instant Pot. And, believe me when I tell you, it came out awesome!
