Instant Pot Reuben Sandwiches

The best lunchtime boredom-buster I've had this month. I am a little in love with these Instant Pot Reuben Sandwiches and their oh-so-easy recipe. Seriously, I am about to plate myself an Instant Pot Reuben Sandwich again for the third time this week.

Servings 6


Corned Beef

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tbsp apple cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion sliced coarsely

  • 1 head cabbage chopped

Russian Dressing

  1. Put all the corned beef ingredients in your Instant Pot, except for the beef and the cabbage, then stir to combine.
