how much water you put in!

I'm about to put some in now.I always put enough to cover the corned beef, but others will probably say you don't need that much.

+1 or almost cover anyway otherwise the pot is too full lol

i always cover mine and a big spoon of golden syrup

Put a splosh of vinegar in the water too which will help tenderize the meat and help with the mustard sauce afterwards.Mmmmm

cover with hot water, add 3 whole cloves, 1 bay leaf, 2 tbsp vinegar and either some brown sugar, golden syrup or honey. Also great for cooking pickled pork.

had this discussion with my hairdresser on Tuesday. She has only ever put a couple of centimetres of water in the bottom of the slow cooker and says it cooks beautifully. Not sure I want to risk it though.

A curl or two from a peeler, of orange skin if you have it, is something I always add - if adds to the flavour of the mustard sauce ( made from the juice) that my family loves. Look up an Edmonds Cookbook.

It MUST be covered!

carter441, Mar 24, 6:36am
Yip - I agree with this one!Personally I go with the Golden Syrup; a few good tablespoons on top of the corned beef (after you've put the water in).YUM!Jealous now.

I always cover the meat with hot water aslong as it does not overflow the dish.I add a splash of mailt vinegar, 1 large tablespoon of goldensyrup, 2 bayleaves and about 4 peppercorns.Yummy!Also keep the cornbeef water for the base of my vege soups and also base for pea soup.Really good!Freeze the water in icecream container if not making soup at that time.

You don't find that the stock is very salty sherrie!I often think it is such a waste to throw out the liquid remains but wonder if I am just being too thifty/mean!

sherrie, Mar 24, 11:59pm
No it is not 2 salty.Put I do not add any more salt until it is served if it needs it!It is a waste if you don't use it for soups.

I would-I only use a pressure-cooker,but only use about 2cm of water,good splosh of vinegar,and dribble golden syrup over the meat.Comes out perfect in 30-40 minutes.Not sure if the water would be different for slow cooker,but don't see why it should.The more water you use,the more flavour leaches out of the beef.Pressure cookers rock!

i put only 2 cms water in the bottom of slow cooker, 1 chopped onion & drizzlegolden syrup over the top of cornbeef. usually put on lowabt 8.30am & leave all day till 5.15 (piece abt $13.00 on special) . Had for tea tonight, certainly wasn't dry. its amazing the fatty water that comes out of the meat!

phoenix2004, Mar 27, 11:23pm
i always put in about enough to leave a cm or so below the top of the corned beef. And i love drizzling in golden syrup with thickly sliced onions. I dont like dry meat so to avoid risking that i would make sure i put in more than half the pot of water. The same for roasting meat ive always made sure i put in more than what i need
