You guys! I promised you a creamy gnocchi with corned beef and zucchini recipe but first I wanted to give you a recipe to actually make the meat! This is super simple and completely hands off!
I love making instant pot recipes such as this instant pot pork tenderloin with potatoes & carrots!
You are going to want to make this time and time again!
Do you like corned beef?
Wait. Do you even like corned beef? I asked my sister this last week and she was like, NO!
I was actually kind of shocked because I can’t understand why? Is it the flavor? Maybe it’s too salty?
I would love to know your thoughts!
I’d though this would be fun to add to my St. Patrick’s Day recipes here on the site!
How to make it?
So how do you actually make this? Well I looked at other recipes online and people are cooking it for 75 minutes to up to 90 minutes in the pressure cooker. I said to myself this can’t be right. Surely it can cook faster than that.
Well, let me tell you. It can. First time I cooked it at 70 minutes and it was definitely falling apart as I was taking it out of my instant pot.
The second time I made it I cooked it at 65 minutes. It wasn’t falling apart but it did shred pretty easily, which is what I wanted.
Could you cook it at 60 minutes? Absolutely because it was already way above the recommended cooking temperature at 65 minutes.
If you want it falling to pieces then definitely cook it long, there is no harm in that!
