I will walk you through how to make this Ninja Foodi corned beef! You will cook your corned beef for so long and then add in your veggies and get them perfectly cooked.

Can I Cook The Corned Beef And Cabbage All At Once

You will start by cooking your corned beef first, then after so long you will add in your veggies and cook them.

If you cooked the vegetables as long as you do the corned beef you would end up with mush.

What Cut Of Meat Do I Buy in Corned Beef

Because you are cooking in the Ninja Foodi you can reach for either cut of brisket. Flat or Point they both are great. Since you pressure cook it becomes extremely tender and juicy.

Flat Cut Corned Beef

Flat cut corned beef is like it says, flatter in size. You can see on the package what it is. You will find the corned beef is leaner and can be tougher in texture.

Point Cut Corned Beef

Pointier on one edge and tapers down on the other side. Point-cut is also a fattier cut of meat.

What Is In The Spice Packet For Corned Beef

Corned Beef Seasoning Packets will vary depending on what brand you buy and the area you live in. Most have peppercorns, mustard seeds, bay leaves, dill, and a few other whole spices.

You do not have to use the packet of seasoning if you prefer to make up your mix.

What Is The Best Way To Slice Corned Beef Brisket

You want to cut against the grain when you slice corned beef. Brisket is one of the toughest meat, and you want to ensure it is tender by slicing correctly.


Glazed Corned Beef

I put a glaze on corned beef to add incredible texture and flavor. Dijon Mustard, brown sugar, and water are all you need to get that rich crust that is so flavorful.

My Brisket is only 2.5lbs, do I cut the cook time in half?


Monday 23rd of November 2020

Hey Kylee! I would almost leave the cook time the same, as it takes awhile to cook and break down brisket to make it tender. If you do cut back time I wouldn't do it by much or you could end up with a tough cut of meat. If so, cook longer to help it break down more.

Can the corned beef be frozen when you put it in the ninja?


Tuesday 26th of May 2020

I would assume you could, you might just need to add a little bit more time to cook to ensure you get it tender.

A half cup of Dijon mustard?! Really or is that a typo? That seems like, well, a lot of mustard lol Thanks!! I'm making this recipe today, but using a glaze recipe from a different site, they used 1/4 c of brown sugar and balsamic and 1/2tblsp of Dijon mustard


Saturday 21st of March 2020

1/2 cup of Dijon is correct. This offers a nice flavor and crust, but I get your concern.
