Instant  Pot Corned Beef Brisket with potatoes and carrots is my recipe of the day.

Instant Pot Corned Beef Brisket

I had popped over to Aldi store when these were on sale and grabbed one up. This is a cinch to cook up in your electric pressure cooker.

The meat was so tender and delicious do you know that I popped back over and grabbed up another brisket before the sale expired? For  my next one, I will just omit the potatoes and carrots and utilize that corned beef for my beloved Reuben Sandwiches (always with extra cheese please!)

Reuben Sandwich

I am a sucker for anything with sauerkraut.

Don’t ask me but I hated it when I was a kid- poor mom. She just dumped the kraut straight into the pan and heated it up. Nobody liked it.

After I met Bill and we got married, I was determined to make some good kraut because it was something he loved. And I am happy to say that worked out swimmingly.

Corned Beef and Reubens

Corned beef  loves kraut as well. We have a place near here called Izzy’s that specializes in Reuben sandwiches. You’d think  I’d be there all the time, but no. I am a bit let down by the state of their soups and  potato pancakes.

While all of that  is very German  or Pennsylvania Dutch, this kind of corned beef dinner is supped to be a New England thing. Very frugal and plain.

Not too  plain if you spice it up with mustard and horseradish. I like the contrast of hot and spicy versus mild mannered veggies and meat.
