Why does is called corned beef

If you are curious to learn where this name came from from, i have an answer for you. In some parts of England, rock salt was called corn. This explains why this dish called corned beef. Corning process is just a brining process, which means beef has to sit in a salt “corn” solution for hours to marinate.

ingredients for corned beef with potatoes and cabbage

Different types of meat are used to make this recipe. Lets see whats the difference:

Flat cut beef

This is my favorite cut of corned beef. Its leaner and its easier to slice. Probably the best cut for next day sandwiches. It still has a large fat layer on one side, so when you pressure cook it, make sure the fat is on top.

Point cut beef

Its thicker then flat cut piece of meat. You can see more marbling going through the meat that will definitely the meat stay more juicy and tender. The cons is its harder to slice, especially if you want to make it pretty.

Can i just dump all the ingredients at once

I don’t recommend doing it. Beef takes long time to cook and get tender while vegetables take only about 10 minutes. If you cook them for too long they will turn into mush.

I tried cook all the ingredients together in the past. If you will use whole unpeeled small potatoes they might hold its shape. Not so much luck with cabbage, it will partially dissolve. Carrots will be very mushy.

Ninja Foodi corned beef step by step

Here are my simple step by step instructions for the best juicy Ninja Foodi corned beef and cabbage recipe. Its easy enough and has only 3 major steps:

  1. Wash the meat. Its a very important step because the solution (brine) has a lot of salt and you want to wash some of it off. Once rinsed, place in the Ninja Foodi on a rack. Add water on the bottom, spice packet (for homemade spices see notes in the recipe card). Close and lock the lid and cook under pressure for 90 minutes. Quick release the pressure.
  2. While the meat is cooking prepare vegetables. Peel carrots and potatoes and cut the cabbage in big chunks. Take the meat out with rack (leave the liquid) and add veggies into the pot . Cook under pressure for 6 minutes. Time depend on how small or big potatoes and carrots are. You can adjust the time by one minute less or more. Quick release.
  3. Now its serving time! Slice corned beef and put veggies around it. Bon appetite!

The best way to slice corned beef

Slice it against the grain for the best tenderness. It might be challenging for a point cut but super easy for flat cut corned beef. Because of the long fibrous strands the meat might be tough if not cut correctly.
