Instant Pot Corned Beef


Keto Instant Pot Corned Beef

******** UPDATED RECIPE 9/12/2019 ***********

I’ve tried making corned beef in both the oven as well as a crockpot.  It is hit or miss at times in terms of the beef being dry or not.   I wanted a consistent way to make one of my most favorite meats!

I went to work and gave my Instant Pot a shot.  It turned out WONDERFUL!  But, sometimes things are a fluke and so I tried it 2 more times, each with a slightly different recipe.  

Every time, the meat came out tender, flaky and just downright AMAZING!

I varied one ingredient each time and choose the variation with the best flavor.  

Apple Cider Vinegar for the win!  

The substitute was a Coke Zero that my hubby wanted to try.  It actually tasted pretty good, but I prefer to stay away from that as an ingredient in a recipe.  

I’m glad I gave it one more shot, because Apple Cider Vinegar was the last one to try.

Do I Put the Seasoning on the Fat Side?

There is great debate over this one.  Some people like to fully flavor the fat and other like to flavor the meat.  

I am not a huge meat fat fan.  I know, I know, I’m keto so how could I not, right?  Well, I don’t.  I eat plenty of fats, but I prefer to eat AROUND the fat on meat.  

So I put the seasoning on the meat side.  

It is totally your choice however!

What Is a Good Side Dish to Pair with Corned Beef?

My favorite is my low carb and gluten free broccoli casserole of course!

A few others that top my list are Cheesy Zucchini Gratin and Sweet and Sour Green Beans with Bacon!
