Besides a total waste of a good piece of meat that's
disgustingly gross... you looking for a medal or
condolences?

I do that too on occasion. I only add about 1 cup of water
though and that is plenty.

I use 1 cup of water in a pressure cooker and cook for
about 1 hour.

Flank is an expensive cut these days. Most supermarket and
deli corned beef I know of is brisket. That is the cut I
prefer. Others prefer round. Never seen corned beef made
from flank - that I know of.

There's a great-sounding recipe on the SurLaTable website
for pressure cooked corned beef with vegetables. I'm ready
to try it when I fix corned beef again. Sheldon - your
recipe is excellent - I'm curious to see how the pressure
cooker version turns out.

It has been several years since I was involved but we used
rounds and took the time to let it cure. With a flat the
time to let the spices reach the center is less. Normally
the time was 21 days.

I'm just curious. All the veggies are pressure cooked for
just 5 - 7 minutes before shutting down the cooker. I'm a
great one for trying new recipes that usually bomb. We'll
see - I'm using your recipe with which to compare it, so
it's probably already doomed.

That's the 3rd time I've seen that recipe at SurHiTab.
It's also in my Kuhn Rikon cookbook and on the Cooks
Illustrated website.

Well anyway, I just finished up the corned beef I've been
munchin' for the last 3 days. It came out real nice. I
didn't go for all the veggies, only wanting cabbage. I
cooked the corned beef in 1 C water and added the cabbage at
the very end and only cooked it for 5 mins. The beef was
exquisitely tender and the cabbage was just right. I reduced
the water to 1 C because I didn't want to leach out all the
flavor. I still had plenty of liquid left. I think I'll try
just 1/2 C of water next time.
