DIRECTIONS

  • Place corned beef into oven bag.
  • Add all ingredients & then tie knot in bag (or with string etc).
  • Shake to mix.
  • Place bag with meat fat side up in a microwave container which is large enough to fit (this is for safety reasons as liquid will be extremely hot when done).
  • Pierce bag a couple of times to allow steam to escape.
  • Microwave on HIGH for 10 Minutes.
  • Then reduce to a simmer & cook for 20 minutes per 500grams (1.1lbs).(power level 6 on my microwave).
  • Allow to stand for 30 Minutes.
  • Slice and serve hot.
  • (Leave any left over portions in liquid until serving so the meat does not dry out.).
  • Note:- It is possible to make this in a large enough microwave bowl without the bag. The bowl must have a lid with holes and the liquid must cover the meat entirely ie. double the recipe.
