Instant Pot Corned Beef recipe with GROHE Faucets #GROHEFootControl
We love to cook and we spend a ton of time in our kitchen. We are always creating new recipes and the craziest part is that we do all of this in our not so cool but sort of retro 1968 kitchen. Although we do love shiny new things and are in desperate need of an entire kitchen update so this partnership with GROHE seemed only natural. This Instant Pot Corned Beef recipe was created as part of our partnership with GROHE and we cleaned out dishes with this badass new faucet. We are obsessed with both the food and the faucet. We hope that you love this Instant Pot Corned Beef recipe.
Instant Pot Corned Beef recipe
- 2.5 pound piece of corned beef (ours is preseasoned with pepper, mustard seeds, bay leaves)
- potatoes – 1 pound peeled, washed and cut small
- carrots – 1 pound peeled, washed and cut small
- Brussels sprouts – 1 pound peeled, washed and cut small
- 2 cups of water
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
*Our Instant Pot is the 8 quart so we have plenty of room to throw in as many carrots and potatoes as desired, you can choose the amount that is right for you and your family and as long as the vegetables are below the MAX line, you should be fine with the same general cook times.
- Place the water and meat in the IP and set to 85 minutes on high pressure under the Manual setting. Seal the pot and let it heat and cook. Do a Quick Release when the time it up.
- While the meat is cooking, prep all of your vegetables, leaving the carrots and potatoes in larger uniformly sized pieces. Peel the outer leaves off the Brussel sprouts, cut off the stock ends and then rough chop the rest to sauté, set aside.
- Carefully remove the lid and set the meat into a glass dish and cover.
- Place the carrots and potatoes in the liquid the meat cooked in. Carefully remove the sealing ring from the lid and completely dry both the lid and ring (this will help make sure the pot seals properly. It may be a fluke just for me, but I’ve found that if the lid is wet inside at all, that it will not seal and pressurize the right way when using the pot again right away).
- Set the pot to 5 minutes, high pressure on Manual, quick release when done.
- While the carrots and potatoes are cooking in the IP, heat a nonstick pan to medium, add the oil and then sauté the Brussel sprouts until golden brown. Serve on top of the rest of the dish. *to make this a truly one pot meal, you could absolutely wait until the vegetables are done then empty the pot contents into a serving dish and sauté the Brussel sprouts in the IP on the Sauté setting. At that point you end up with an extra dish for either the frying pan or serving dish though so your call.

Thoughts on the GROHE K7 by Jason Connerty
As a professional chef, I know exactly what I want when it comes to my kitchen. However, we live in a house built in 1968 and the kitchen is original with the exception of the dishwasher. We are desperately in need of a complete kitchen redesign but like a lot of things, it's on the to do list. We have another faucet in a box and it's been sitting in our closet for a few years. It's not what I wanted so we left the 1968 faucet on instead of changing it.
I'll be honest. I was impressed with the sleek look of the faucet but it needs to perform if I am going to keep it in our kitchen. Why yes that is our Avocado Green sink you are staring at underneath that gorgeous faucet. As I installed the GROHE K7, I couldn't help but thing that the foot activation feature was a bit of a gimmick. It added complexity to the install, and I really could not see myself using it. I mean, how hard is it to turn on a faucet?
