  1. Put the first 9 ingredients (through the onion), into the Cuisinart® Pressure Cooker. Add water until it covers roughly ²⁄ ³ of the corned beef. Secure the lid and select High pressure. Put over high heat until it reaches full pressure. Reduce temperature to maintain pressure* and set a timer for 1 hour 30 minutes.
  2. When time expires, remove pressure cooker from heat and release pressure by selecting quick pressure release. When the red safety valve drops, remove lid and add the baby carrots, potatoes and cabbage. Secure the lid and select High pressure again, and time for 5 minutes. Once time expires, remove pressure cooker from heat.
  3. When ready to serve, transfer the vegetables to a serving plate and the corned beef to a cutting board. Thinly slice the corned beef, against the grain. If desired, serve with horseradish or whole-grain mustard. Garnish with chopped parsley.

* Unit reaches full pressure when red safety valve pops up and steam releases continuously from the pressure release valve. Regulate pressure by reducing temperature to medium/medium-low to maintain full pressure. There should be slight steam and consistent hissing from the pressure release valve.

Keep a close eye on the pressure cooker when cooking. Some adjustment of temperature may be necessary to maintain pressure.
