I've been making this meal for more than 40 years. It is so easy and delicious. It's especially good served with a salad of peaches and cottage cheese.—Ruth Warner, Wheat Ridge, Colorado

"I don't have a pressure cooker, so I just left it in the slow cooker all day. I think I might have liked to cook the vegetables WITH the beef, rather than doing it separately. My husband, who grew up on these kinds of meals, says it tasted just like his mom's. High praise indeed!"

"I love have had trouble with corned beef in the past--not enough cooking time and too tough. However, this recipe was perfect! I have saved the recipe and will use it from now on--by far it was the tastiest corned beef I have made and very tender. Thanks for sharing!!"

"My family loves corned beef and cabbage. I am not a fan, but I make it every year for them. This recipe is incredible! I actually cooked a 4 # corned beef with 6 cups of water in a pressure cooker (spice packets too) for 1 hour on high. I let it sit in the pot and cool for almost an hour before I served it with the sides. My family said that it was the best ever, and I have to say that I thought it was tasty also. I will make this every year going forward because of the ease and results."

"Not everyone has made the investment of a pressure cooker, they are lovely tho and try to buy one when you are able. In the mean time use your crock pot, most all cooks have one in their kitchen arsenal! Cook for 8hrs on low. Remove and keep warm with some of the tasty broth and pour the remaining into a pot to cook the gabbage and carrots. Floury white Colcannon potatoes on the side with some soda bread and yer set for a festive night. As my

Grandmother Rose Flannagan would say, "Jasus, Mary and Hoooly Saint Joooseph, make due with what ye have.""
