One of my daddy’s favorite meals was corned beef. I remember my mom cooking it for hours in her stove top pressure cooker. You know, the one with the thing on top that would rock back and forth and scare us? It seemed like it was going to blow up! That thing always made me nervous. My siblings and I weren’t even allowed in the kitchen when she was using it.
Alas, as an adult I reverted to cooking corn beef in my slow cooker. It just wasn’t the same. Maybe it is because you have to use so much water in a slow cooker that the meat just lost it’s yummy corned flavor.
Needless to say, I very rarely cooked it. That us until my husband gave me a Farberware 7-in-1 electric pressure cooker for Christmas! Don’t think bad of him for giving me an appliance as a gift, it was one of the appliances I asked for.
As I mentioned on my Welcome page, I have begun experimenting in the kitchen. To do that I needed some new “toys”, aka appliances. Okay, back on track, corned-beef, right?
Steve and I have been married a little over two years and I knew that he liked ruben sandwiches. I decided to surprise him with corned-beef and cabbage for dinner one night shortly after receiving my PC. He was skeptical when he saw what was for dinner because he had never had good home cooked corned-beef. He was pleasantly surprised! He now raves to anyone who will listen about my corned-beef.
This recipe is easy. It does take about 2 hours total to prepare but it is well worth it. The left overs (if there are any) make great ruben sandwiches.
The last time I made it I hadn’t started blogging yet so I only one picture of the finished meal. The next time I make it will be sure to take more pictures and update this post.
I hope you enjoy! Let me know how it turns out!
