A German twist on Corned Beef (In my oven right now!)

Post by DSMBaptist » Sun Feb 22, 2009 12:09 am

IALU'S SIMPLICITY CODE: VERY EASY

Since I'm 3/4ths German, about 1/4 Irish (and allegedly, a sprinkle of Russian Jew), I have this really simple "recipe" for German/Irish Corned Beef:

3-4 Lbs of Corned Beef
peppercorn package (normally supplied with corned beef)
Approximately 8-12 new red potatoes
2 # sauerkraut, or to taste
2 cups water

Open Corned beef package
Lay in large disposable aluminum pan, fat side down
Cover with peppercorns (usually supplied in package)
Lay in 8-12 fist sized new red potatoes
Cover with a generous layer of sauerkraut, about 2-3 pounds (I use the bagged kind, and tonight, I used 2 bags)
Pour in 2 cups water
Cover entire pan with foil
Bake in oven at 350% approximately 2 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees

Serve!

I originally made this dish for a potluck at work that was canceled at the last minute. Since we already had brought our stuff, we ate it anyway, and my co-worker Malaya said, "Honey, that is Irish soul food!"

The first time that I made this, I used that disposable plastic ware that is or was made by either Glad(?) or Hefty. When I was in Wal Mart last night, they said that they only carry it at Christmas time, which to me makes no sense, but, oh well!

ENJOY!
:dinner: :drool:

I like the sourkraut with the corned beef. Corned beef is very versitile, and you can corn your own. There a couple of recipes under the 'Braised Short Rib' post in here.

Thanks, Falvegas! By the way, the corned beef came out VERY tender and juicy, and just a bit chewy, but not much. And oh my word...what the sauerkraut did to those potatoes...it was heaven! :drool:

And I only baked it for an hour and 45 minutes, mostly because I had my faithful stoneware underneath. I use it almost every time I bake now! :thumbsup:

Now this sounds like something I'd like to try! Best of all, it's easy. :)
