This is from the Australian Womens Weekly Fresh programme. In the cooking time I include the resting time, no time on the salad (I've only ever made the corned beef)but at a guess I would say about 30 minutes. A different way to serve corned beef for St. Patrick's Day.

Delicious and tender. If you live here in the U.S. remember to change the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit or your roast will not be done.

I'm giving this zero stars because this didn't work for my US corned beef, which I've learned is a different cut of beef than the Aussie-New Zealand "silverside" cut. US corned beef is from the chest, a completely different area of the animal. I used the best corned beef from our local grocer and baking it, as opposed to boiling it in lots of water with cabbage and potatoes as is traditionally done, made this ultimately too briny, so much so that it wasn't something I'd care to make again! US corned beef is salt-cured, so that might also be a contributing factor. I did make the potato salad and we really enjoyed that! Thanks, I'mPat! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap #74 as a "pressie".

Made it for St. Patrick's day this past weekend and it was a pleasure to eat it. The seasoning was tasty and enjoyed by all in my family. I was especially surprised that my husband (who is not a fan of corned beef) enjoyed it as well. The only problem was that I found that it didn't reach the tender stage. It may have been the quality of corned beef that I bought...not sure, but next time I will cook it at a lower heat covered and then uncover at the end. Made it for PRMR tag game. Thank you "I'm Pat" for sharing.
