Busy as we are, we didn't have time to do Corned beef and cabbage on St. Patty's day (sad, I know). BUT...the upside is we didn't forget about the
We raise beef cattle, and we had a few briskets and top rounds in the locker. So about two weeks ago (well, 12 days actually) I had "corned"
(cured) a couple nice pieces of beef from one of our recent steers. Today, they were ready to go. "Right off the hoof, into the locker and into the
pot" as I like to think of it. This was a little bit older steer so I didn't have any regrets about pickling some of the cuts off him.
Decided to use the pressure cooker tonight. Pulled the cuts from the brine and cooked the beef. Wow! Smells incredible.
Absolutely FANTASTIC!!. Normally a corned beef would take 5-6 hours to cook fully, not this one. This one was done in 90 minutes, with the cabbage,
carrots and veggies taking the last 10. Absolutely withering food, just off the charts!
We seldom use the pressure cooker. In fact, this is the first time we've used it to "cook" food; normally we just use it for canning. Now I
can't wait to figure out what other foods will blow the charts up (delicious) in the pressure cooker!!
