Most years around St. Patrick’s Day I make corned beef and cabbage. This year, I used my Instant Pot for my recipe. The results were amazing! Be sure to check out the recipe here.

First, you toast rye bread. You can either use a toaster or do this in a skillet. If you use a skillet, spray it with olive oil over medium-high heat. You can add the cheese slices on top of one of the bread slices so that the cheese melts while the bread toasts.

Next, load up your corned beef brisket.

From there, add the sauerkrout.

Then, spread thousand island dressing on the other toasted side of the bread. Top the sandwich. VOILA! That was pretty quick and easy, right?

Ingredients

Corned Beef

  • 3-4 pound corned beef brisket
  • 2-3 cups chicken stock Or any broth, I used 3 cups.
  • 2-3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 onion Sliced

Sandwich

  • sliced rye bread
  • 1-2 tablespoons sauerkraut for each sandwich
  • 1 tablespoons thousand island dressing for each sandwich
  • 2 slices swiss cheese for each sandwich

Instructions

Corned Beef

  • Place the trivet in the Instant Pot. This is the metal component that comes with the Instant Pot
  • Add the corned beef, chicken stock, onions, and garlic to the pot.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and seal. Cook for 90 minutes on Manual > High-Pressure Cooking.
  • Do not perform a quick release when the Instant Pot indicates it is finished. Allow the steam to release naturally for 10 minutes.
  • Release the steam. Open the pot and remove the beef. Set aside to cool.
  • Using two knives, shred the beef.

Sandwich Preparation

  • Toast the rye bread.
  • Add the Swiss cheese on top of one of the bread slices while the toasted bread is still hot so that it melts. You can also add the bread and cheese to the microwave for 15-20 seconds if you prefer bubbling cheese.
  • Next, add the shredded corned beef. Then top with sauerkraut. 
  • Spread the Thousand Island dressing on the other slice of bread. Top the sandwich.
  • Serve!

Notes

I typically make reuben sandwiches using the leftover corned beef from my corned beef and cabbage dinner. This recipe has been prepared with leftovers in mind.

This looks great except for the shredded corned beef. Is there any way the corned beef brisket would come out of the Instant Pot so it could be sliced not shredded?

It comes out whole. I shredded it.

Reubens have always been my favorite sandwich and I've never thought to make them in the Instant Pot. Such a great idea, I can't wait to try this for my kids!
