How to Pressure Cook an Awesome Corned Beef

by Grubby Bear

This is my tried and true method for making an amazing corned beef. You can experiment with your own veggies and quantities to taste. You will need a pressure cooker.


  • ½ kilograms Beef silverside
  • 5 Onions
  • 6 Carrots
  • 1 Leek
  • 1 Celery
  • 6 Cloves
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • 1 Teaspoon Peppercorns
  • 1 Liter Stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown sugar
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Simmer the meat on its own

    Step 2

    Once it has frothed up remove and drain the crap away. Wash the meat if need be.

    Step 3

    Once the meat is cleaned add the rest.

    Step 4

    Some onions. Go nuts with these.

    Step 5

    Stick your cloves in one of the onions.

    Step 6

    Rough chop the veggies and chuck them in.

    Step 7

    Throw in some peppercorns and bay leaves.

    Step 8

    I also like to add some brown sugar.

    Step 9

    Cover with stock, water and a dash of vinegar.

    Step 10

    Whack the lid on and turn on the heat.

    Step 11

    Pressure cook for, I don't know, 2 hours? The longer the better. The meat is cooked after about 1 but it really starts to break up the longer you cook it for.

    Step 12

    After a few hours it might look something like this.

    Step 13

    Rest it if you want. We are hungry so we're eating it now.

    Step 14

    Slice and serve with your favorite accompaniments. Enjoy!
