This was wonderful! I had never cooked corned beef before (other than boiling in a bag) and this was a great, easy recipe. My corned beef was a little smaller, maybe 1.5lbs so I simmered it for about 1.5 hours instead of 2. Great taste, easy to make, my family of 4 loved it. We also used the mustard Mustard Sauce for Corned Beef which was a perfect match. Loved it!
My husband said this was the best corned beef he'd ever had. My brisket came with a little packet of spices (I recognized juniper, bay, and whole mustard, not sure what else was in there) which I added along with everything else. My brisket started floating about midway through the cook time, so I weighted it down with a salad plate. I also completely forgot to buy cabbage, so we turned off the heat about 15 minutes shy of 2 hours and left it to cool in the broth for almost an hour while we went to the store--with no apparent harm done.
Yum! Like Pat not a lot different to how I normally cook corned beef but the ketchup and little extra sugar gives an extra touch of sweetness that was great. I cooked a few vegies along with it but gave the beef a bit of a soak and rinse before hand so it wasn't too salty.
I loved this, I'd never made corned beef before but it seemed like the right combination of flavours. I had a smaller piece of silverside, and my only regret is cooking it too long, it was a little dry. Eaten too quickly to take a photo! Thanks Jan!
This is an excellent recipe. Easy and delicious. Since I am always boiling things over on the stove... I starting this boiling then but the dutch oven in the oven..250 degrees for 3 hours.. instead of boiling.
Got to admit the only difference to how I normally do a corned beef and this one is the addition of ketchup (tomatoe sauce) and we thoroughly enjoyed it tonight for dinner with mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables and cheesy white sauce. I used a 1 kilo piece of corned silverside and it took 1 hour to cook. Thank you Jan.
Wonderful...just wonderful!! The corned beef turned out excellent. My family loves it to be served with mashed potatoes & veg. I know they will be fighting over the leftovers this morning...who will end up getting yummy corned beef sandwiches for lunch today?? Lucky I'm first up in the morning and always have first pick at leftovers...cold corn beef on toast...YUM!! :)
This was a very good corned beef recipe. It was wonderful. Really easy to make. Will be using this recipe from now on. Thanks for posting.
I was out of vinegar so used some chardonnay instead! :-) It worked brilliantly - a great recipe, thanks Jan.
I usually make corned beef once a year and thats for my husbands birthday (Im not a great fan) this is similar to the recipe I use except I use brown sugar and minus the ketchup, this is very tasty..I used a 1.5 kg piece of silverside..and I actually enjoyed the birthday meal..thanks Jan. :)
