This was the recipe I used for my St. Paddy's Day dinner on March 17/02, part of our Zaar "Go Irish - Go Green" cook-a-thon. The directions were clear and simple and, even though I had a smaller piece of corned beef, it all worked out great! I did steal an idea from one of Mirjam Dorn's recipes though, and added some apple juice and brown sugar to the water covering the beef. Inez, thanks for posting this; it really helped a corned-beef novice like me! I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who is unsure about cooking corned beef. Delicious ... I'll be making this again, for sure!
