I am a diehard Instant Pot (IP) fan. It makes everything from the perfect fluffy rice to perfectly braised lamb shank. I have even made a cheesecake in my IP. It is a workhorse in my kitchen, right up there with my KitchenAid stand mixer and Cuisinart food processor. I love it so much I named it — Theseus, because it can always get me out of a jam.
It was built for a holiday that celebrates corned beef. (Because if you don't cook that just right, it's like eating shoe leather. And pro-tip, if you like corned beef, buy a ton of it right now, because this is the only time of the year that it goes on sale.) But if you need more Irish inspiration, here are nine Instant Pot recipes for St. Patrick's Day.
