   MeiDei  Large cabbage leaves are separated from head & stem reduced; Thousand Island is the dressing referenced.

   MeiDei  Check your grocery ads this week for corned beef brisket - most stores have it on sale 1/2 price or more (under $2 lb. ) in anticipation of St. Patrick's Day. I bought 12 pkgs. last year & used one a month. I don't cook it traditionally [covered in water] just 1/2 way up at most, brought to a boil & then turned down to a simmer for 90 mins. every size meat; in last 1/2 hour I throw in potatoes that I microwaved for a few mins. then cut in chunks b4 adding to the liquid - which could be water w/white wine, or w/apple cider, beer & have even used Goya Malto whatever that is. We like our brisket more steak-like in texture so this method works for us & less shrinkage. Makes for excellent Reuben sandwiches next day so if you like Reubens check out sales on Swiss Cheese and start making your fermented sauerkraut now ; ) Typically carrots & cabbage are thrown in the pot, we prefer shredding them raw for cole slaw & served as a side.

   MeiDei  BTW he pan is tightly covered, used a splatter shield once - bad result. You do have to keep an eye on liquid level especially if you want to deglaze the pan to reheat the meat for a Reuben. When I'm less than attentive & generate a scorched pan thereby negating reheating the meat in the seasoned liquid, I resort to using the Forman for a quick reheat & cheese melt.
Bird & Storm are creative experienced cooks among many here so I hope this appeals to others. I'd never made [nor ingested] brisket until +/- 5 years ago and I asked around the neighborhood for instructions, all covered the meat w/liquid or used an oven method & each complained about excessive shrinkage; so I winged it w/a hope & a prayer.
I also prefer the red variety vs. the grey - it's just visually more appealing to me, I like a colorful plate - a quirk of mine.

   BirdsNest  That looks so good. I won't make it just for me. It will be interesting to see what price our store has for a sale on corned beef. It is usually very high.

   MeiDei  It freezes well Bird once cooked. It is always too high for me except at this time of year. My son thought I was nuts til I showed him the before & after prices, avg. savings was $12-15 per pkg. depending on point or flat cut & 1/2 the price # for # of 85% lean hamburger.
