Mealthy tip:

Did you know that corned beef was actually used as a substitute for bacon by Irish-American immigrants in the late 19th century? Traditionally, St. Patrick's Day was celebrated with boiled bacon. However, the immigrants were too poor to afford the high price of pork and bacon products. Instead, they turned to the cheapest cut of meat available: beef brisket. Thus, a new tradition was born!

Very easy, quick and quite good in 1-1/2 hours. Potatoes, carrots and cabbage were fully cooked in 3 minutes.

This was our first dinner cooked in our Mealthy. It was suggested by a friend to add a bit more seasoning, which we did. It came out perfectly!

Thought I’d have leftovers, but no. Everyone had one word, “Wow!” I had a slightly smaller corned beef so I took 5 minutes off the cooking time. It was perfect! We will make this again!

Corn beef turned out dry and tough, even though we followed instructions. I would suggest cutting time in half. 45 minutes is more than enough. As for potato’s, carrots and cabbage, cook in another pot. Waste of time waiting for pressure to built up again just to cook for 4 min.

My husband didn’t like our 3/17 tradition of corned beef/cabbage until I made it in the Mealthy. Last year he said that was the most tender corned beef he’d ever had!
