    Default how do you tell when corned beef is done?

    Guess what I made for dinner. But how do I tell if its done? : Its only small, so I gues an hour should be long enough. I put some other spices in the water too. Made it kinda asian.

    I don't think an hour would be long enough TL
    How small is small?

    You could always do the skewer test

    Take a metal skewer
    Poke it in to the middle of the meat
    Count to ten as in one thousand, two thosand etc
    Take it out and touch it to your top lip
    If it feel hot the meats cooked

    When the river gibbers go soft, it's done.

    Simmer for two hours or 20 minutes in a pressure cooker.

    : The packet said 1 hour per kilo. It wasn't even that big. Anyway, we ate it and we're not dead yet.

    I put the usual pepper and vinegar. And also had some onions, carrots and garlic and ginger floating in the water. And some cinnamon bark, cloves, nutmeg, all spice, cardomon. (Spell checker can't spel cardomon. ) Next time I might dry roast the spices in a little fry pan first. I don't think boiling them releases their flavour very well.

    I use corned beef in shepherds pie, very tasty minced with onion, topped in chutney then the mashed spud on top.

    I'v got some left overs. Not sure there is enough for a pie though. Maybe a vegetable pastie.

    Yup, then you chuck the CB out & eat the gibbers.

    Old recipe for Galah, also works for Bush Turkey.

    Cardamom is even better.
    When you are dead you don't know you are dead, it is only difficult for others. It's the same when you are stupid.
