Notes

*Corned Beef Cooking Time: If your corned beef is thicker than 1.5 inch, adjust the pressure cooking time by adding 5 - 6 minutes High Pressure Cooking Time for every additional 1/2 inch.
*Corned Beef Natural Pressure Release Time: If the floating valve doesn’t drop after 15 minutes, release the remaining pressure by turning the venting knob from sealing position to venting position.
*Vegetables Pressure Cooking Time: the optimal pressure cooking time will depend on the size of your cabbage. The going up to pressure time may differ, so keep this in mind & adjust accordingly to avoid overcooking.
