Cooking Methods Unveiled

With both my sons back home for Spring Break, I took the opportunity to impress them with a homemade feast. In the past, I’ve tried both slow cooking and pressure cooking methods for corned beef, which yielded excellent results. However, there was one occasion when I dared to roast it, and unfortunately, the meat turned out less than perfect. I realized that it hadn’t been roasted long enough for the connective tissues to break down. Unlike steaks that require precision cooking, beef brisket demands a slow and tenderizing process. This time, I was determined to get it right.

Another effective cooking method for corned beef is braising. You can choose to braise it on the stove or in the oven, with the latter being slightly less demanding. Simply place the meat on a rack in a roasting pan filled with water, seal it tightly with aluminum foil, and let it simmer away in a slow oven until the meat becomes fork-tender. During the final hour, I removed the aluminum foil to allow a flavorful crust to form on top.

Essential Tools for Perfection

To prepare this heavenly Roasted Corned Beef and Cabbage dish, I relied on a few key tools:

  • Staub Ceramics Rectangular Baking Dish – Basil: This baking dish ensured even cooking and a perfect presentation.
  • Meat Tenderizer – Aluminum Meat Hammer: With this heavy-duty cast aluminum tool, I easily broke down the tough fibers of the meat.

A Taste Sensation

My perfectly roasted Corned Beef and Cabbage was an absolute triumph this time around. The meat was succulent, savory, and extraordinarily tender. Although it didn’t fall apart as it does when pressure cooked, it received a unanimous seal of approval from both my sons. They particularly enjoyed the roasted vegetables and pan-braised cabbage wedges. Cooking it for 3 hours certainly paid off handsomely.
