Well, "MikeS", it (my friend’s recipe) is now posted up. In fact, I posted up a SECOND version (recipe/method) because I feel that genuine corned beef is a delicacy NOT to be trifled with.
I hope that the posted recipe/methods will be helpful to someone who really enjoys good corned beef . . . and NOT supermarket, chemical-laden crap.
In addition, ANYONE who knows how to use Google, has read (in the mass media) that " . . . corned beef and cabbage isn’t something that is eaten in Ireland."
More correctly stated, corned beef and cabbage isn’t something that is a TRADITIONAL dish in Ireland. There is PLENTY of corned beef and cabbage "eaten in Ireland" today, as my wife s lovely Irish relatives will be happy to tell you.
As any scholar knows, "corned beef and cabbage" is associated with the Irish because the Irish IMMIGRANTS to America enjoyed what was then a cheap (inexpensive) dinner widely prepared by the Jewish community at that time.
So, someone who enjoys using Google to insult or to embarrass another poster should use Google in its entirety . . . that is to research the subject entirely, before making non-sensical, condescending comments in the form of posts .
Genuine home-made corned beef is a true delicacy, at least it is to people who enjoy Old World cuisine.
