This is THE BEST corned beef recipe ever. It's from 'The Brooklyn Cookbook' by Lyn Stallworth and Rod Kennedy, Jr. The secret is that it's roasted not boiled. I usually cook 2 pieces of meat - as much as I can fit in my large roasting pan - to be sure there are leftovers. ;) I either roast my cabbage in wedges or make one of the MANY wonderful cabbage dishes here. Please don't just boil the stuff! .
