Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup (OMG!)

For many, canned corned beef is a big no-no. This is largely because the canned corned beef that we typically get in most supermarkets is made with preservatives, fillers, and excessive amounts of sodium. And to make matters worse, they’re not even all beef; if you look closely at the ingredients, canned corned beef contains meat by-products as well, so you don’t really know what you’re getting. When I switched to making almost everything homemade, I became more mindful of the food I buy at the supermarket and of course, the ingredients I use in my cooking. Corned beef is actually pretty easy to make if you have an instant pot because the cooking time makes the beef so tender, it crumbles underneath your fork. Add some cabbage soup and it’s a filling meal in one.
