“I liked the traditional corned beef dinner but wanted something different. When I cooked this for the American Legion, Post 1107 in Union Springs, NY, on St. Patrick's Day, I was crowned " The King of Corned Beef". On that day, I converted many "haters" of the dish to lover's of Corned Beef. If you have skeptics, try this one....They will never be picky again...I never told anyone the secret til now, but I can't keep "perfection" from the world. Please enjoy and rate accordingly.... Note: Corned beef cooking time can be reduced to 1.5 hours by using a pressure cooker. Cook brisket with apple juice with spices. Let cooker cool on it's own, then remove to a pot. Gently pour apple juice from pressure cooker, then place vegetables as below, then cover and cook until cabbage and potatoes are tender.”
