I used this recipe for the Feast on St.Patty's Day, I did not use apple juice, the bay leaves,and we do not like rutabega and I used fresh onions. BUT this cooking structure is what I was looking for ! We loved the horseradish & mustard sauce. Everyone raved about his. I had to give YOU the credit ! Thank You I will keep this and use it again when the cornbeef craving strikes. DH said 5 star !
