Instant Pot Buzzy Corned Beef

Corned Beef made with Sweet & Cute Coffee Syrup

This Corned Beef gets drunk on beer, then sobers up with coffee, just like most of us on St. Patrick's Day.  But it comes out so tender, juicy and delicious - and is so easy to make - you'll want it all year round! 


  • 1 beef brisket (~4lbs) with seasoning packet
  • 1 can (12 oz) Guinness (or similar)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Coffee Syrup
  • boiler onions
  • other veggies: cabbage, carrots, potatoes

Mix Coffee Syrup and brown sugar together to make a paste, then rub on beef. Place brisket into Instant Pot and sprinkle on the spice packet. Pour a can of Guinness beer in and add a few onions. Pressure cook on high for 90 minutes, then quick release. Remove beef from pot (leaving liquid), set on a platter and cover to rest and keep warm (like a child :) 

Add other veggies to the pot - cabbage, carrots, potatoes (I like both red and sweet potatoes), etc. Pressure cook for 5 minutes and quick release. 


You can also make this in a crock pot and slow cook for 8 hours, just add the potatoes and carrots at the beginning.  Add cabbage after 6 hours to cook with everything else for the last 2 hours.
