strain it and keep it for stock too if you like.
make gravy and soup out of it.
heaped tablespoon of vegemite is my secret ingredient for corned beef - seems you can chuck all sorts of stuff in the water and it turns out well - will def give the ginger ale a go, wonder if anyone's going to be doing a version using beer (maybe a dark ale...)
made some friday night in slow cooker....first time in slow cooker, and with ginger ale
might be a placebo effect, but meat seemed more tender than normal
whether that is down to the ginger ale, or the slow cooker I dunno
I'd say it's the slow cooker.
How long did you leave it in for?
I'd like to do something like this but I'm not really a corned beef fan unfortunately :/
I reckon on high for 4hrs, then dropped it to low for 2hrs
really....where's that ignore button
You came into a thread about corned beef to tell us you don't like corned beef?
Try it with some other cut of meat then.
Pork or lamb maybe.
Sorry, I want to like it! It gets served up quite a bit at dinners. I don't mind it with a bit of HP sauce.
Maybe they aint cooking it right?
family dinners I assume? mother in-law serves it up sometimes
I have never served for dinner to anyone, except immediate family
Yeah family dinners mostly.
It's possible it's not being cooked right, I guess......but they are good cooks though.
What's the put off?
Anyone tried this in a pressure cooker?
I've never cooked corned beef before but I want to for my partner who loves the stuff, can you sear this in a frying pan before boiling or it doesn't work?
you could try browning after cooking, but you risk it falling apart in the pan.
what i normally do when i cook mine is do it the day beforehand and let it sit in the fridge to firm up.
then i can slice it with less chance of it falling apart.
then i usually give the slices a quick pan fry.
it works well.
Sounds good! thanks, will try it out during the week
Just the taste.
have a crack at yourself then.
you will have control over the flavours.
my previous experiences with other people cooking corned beef has been that they insist on putting cloves into it and serving it drowned in white sauce.
as a result i never ate it.
when i make it myself to my own tastes it's very enjoyable.
especially in the slow cooker to get that fall aparty goodness.
Corned beef cooked with salt water is the bomb. Served with you favourite sauce etc (i always had Leggos Sandwich Pickles when i was a kid, love it).
Also goes well with some fruit chutney.
I'm going to try a pickled pork this week.
I've never had a fresh made corned beef before. I happened to be chatting to friends about it and everyone was telling me this needs to be eaten with cauliflower sauce. Does anyone know what cauliflower sauce is? Is it just a puree of cauliflower?
I think they're just referring to white sauce.
