  1. Turned out fantastic! Most recipes have too much sodium. This is just what my family wanted. No leftovers! Too good.

    1. If you only use 1 pound of corned beef I would recommend decreasing the cook time to 60 minutes.

  2. if I have a five pound brisket, can I cut in half and stack in the instapot? how would it effect the cooking time?
