      This recipe sounds delicious, and I'm definitely going to use it next time I make corned beef. Just a thought---Mom was Boston-bred Irish and swore that whenever you cooked corned beef, you should always put it in plain water with a tablespoon of cider vinegar; bring to a boil and then discard the water. Supposedly this cuts the grease that the meat gives off during the actual cooking. Anybody else ever heard this?

      I had never cooked a corned beef before and wanted a recipe to serve family for St. Patrick's Day. Found this recipe via the Internet and tried it. Everyone at dinner raved about the tenderness of the meat and the flavor. They continue to talk about how good it was. The recipe was easy to follow and everything turned out perfect. In fact, they asked for the recipe.
