Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Tip: If your corned beef doesn't have its own seasoning packet, place 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns, 6 whole cloves and 1 dried bay leaf on a piece of cheesecloth and tie with string. Add the packet to the cooker.
  • Tip 2
    Did you know? : Corned beef was originally "corned," or preserved with granular salt, because there was no refrigeration. Today, the beef is cured in brine and spices are added for a distinctive tangy flavour.
