I was just thinking since St Patties day is on a Friday and I don't want to start eating at 9pm the crockpot might be the way to go, but since you thing that is a faux paux then maybe I will just have a liquid dinner on Fri and save the corned beef making for the next night

i saw the post about sutter's and ireland's. thanks. i used to date a girl in suffern, and we would go to sutter's mill on tuesdays i think it was for 10 cent wings. we'd sit and order 50 at a time, and drink until we exploded! great wings, fun place back then. i used to play hockey right up the road from you, at the sport-o-rama in monsey.
i've driven past that steakhouse millions of times and wondered how it was. . i'll have to check it out. there's a japanese place near there also that we want to try sometime.
mb & g, or the mason jar are our usual stops up there.
ok, so how often do you go to kinchley's?

and i'm only kidding gb. i'm just not a fan of them new fangled contraptions like crock pots an' such.

altho a liquid dinner sounds fine too!

I love Corned Beef! My new favorite way to cook it is in the Pressure Cooker - a 4 lb piece of meat and potatoes cook in about 35 minutes under pressure - remove the meat & spuds and slip the quartered cabbage in for about 10 minutes. The beef is tender and flavorful. Ok now I'm starting to drool - better get the meat out of the freezer!

GB, this looks like a good method for preparing it in a slow cooker.

2 pounds small red potatoes
1 1/2 cups fresh baby carrots
1 medium onion -- cut into 8 wedges
1 corned beef brisket with seasoning packet -- (2 - 2 1/2 pounds)
2 cups apple juice
8 thin wedges cabbage
Horseradish Sauce*

Place potatoes, carrots and onion in 5 to 6 1/2 quart slow cooker. Top with corned beef brisket; sprinkle with contents of seasoning packet. Add apple juice and enough water to just cover brisket.

Cover; cook on low setting for 10-12 hours.

About 40 minutes before serving, remove beef from slow cooker; Place on serving platter and cover to keep warm. Add cabbage wedges to vegetables and broth in slow cooker. Increase heat setting to high; cover and cook an additional 30-35 minutes or until cabbage is crisp-tender.

To serve, cut corned beef across grain into thin slices. With slotted spoon, remove vegetables from slow cooker. Serve corned beef and vegetables with sauce.

Horseradish Sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Combine all ingredients, mix well.

I like to cook corned beef in the oven. At work we have corned beef and cabbage every year at St. Paddy's day time. I put 3-4 corned beef roasts in a large roasting pan with 3-4 wedged onions and 1 head of peeled garlic cloves, and a an ample handful or two of pickling spice. Add water until about 1/2 way up the sides of the briskets. Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F. for at least 4-5 hours. The veggies are cooked separate with some pickling spices added for flavor. We cook the veggies separate from the meat to accommodate the vegetatarians at our work place. This year we are cooking 9 corned beef briskets about 3-4 lbs. a piece.

Corned beef on the grill is a slow and draen out process. However, if you cook it for about five minutes per side, over direct coals, with the cover on, then throw it into the pressure cooker for another 20 minutes, you will ahve some of the best corned beef you've ever tasted. The fire gives it such a wonderful flavor.

I bought a nice corned beef yesterday. Tomorrow, I'll put it in the crockpot with a beer and and the seasoning packet. After the beef is done, I'll remove it from the juice, add cabbage, carrots and potatoes and let them cook in the juice until done.
That way, HB can have his corned beef sandwich without it being "tainted" by the cabbage.

Did you know...

"The connection between Ireland and corned beef dates to colonial times in Boston, when meat was imported from Ireland and preserved in salt, said Kevin O'Neill, history professor in the Irish Studies program at Boston College. The result - corned beef - was associated with Ireland."

Just a little item I ran across on the web today.
