its excellent! it taste really good! When i served it on our dinner table my family loves it and they even asks for more but unluckily i didnt cook much because its my first time and i just want to try it and it ended up perfect. by the way to those whose saying that its salty what i can say is that the measurements varies on how much the ingredients are so please dont blame it on the recipe.

Used moxie's pickling spice (Recipe #57233) for this, reduced the portions for about a 1.5 kg brisket-y looking hunk of meat (my non metallic container wouldn't hold the quantity specified by the recipe plus the meat). After 2 days, I barely simmered the meat for about 3 hours, but I didn't serve it immediately; I refrigerated it and then carved across the grain and reheated it in a saute pan with a little bit of water the next day. It needed some serious salting, but it turned out EXCELLENT. I wasn't sure what the result would be, but my DH said it was better than anything I'd concocted for St. Patty's Day when we lived Stateside. Thanks for the foundation of a great Corned Beef, Cabbage and Potato Dinner. Visiting FIL and MIL loved it too!
