corned beef and cabbage

One of my favorite meals is corned beef and cabbage yet I never make it.  I looked through my pressure cooker cookbooks and to my surprise I came up empty handed.  Google to the rescue!  The first search page had a recipe from with rave reviews.  I decided to give it a try.

My review:::  eh, it took me 3 hours from start to finish.  The beef was a bit dry and the vegetables over cooked.  Below is my adaptation to hopefully make the recipe right.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

2 1/2 pound corned beef
3 garlic cloves quartered
2 bay leaves
5 organic carrots
2 heads of baby cabbages cut into 8 wedges
