Thank you for all the great ideas. I didn't end up cooking it today as I ended up going out but I am cooking it on Sunday. My mouth is watering already.

Can't remember who asked but corned beef and corned silverside are the same thing.

Great. Thanks a lot. :smt011

Just kidding... but now I want corned beef too and I reckon I've got buckley's of finding it here in Germany! I'm with Heather - I don't like all the extra herbs. Mum cooks it just with an onion cut in half in the water and it turns out well (on the stovetop).

It is my number one favourite meal and Mum always cooks it when I'm home :-D

I cook corned beef in a slow cooker. In a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker, place celery, carrots, onion, potatoes, and thyme. Place corned beef, fat side up, on top of vegetables and sprinkle with pickling spice; add enough water to almost cover meat (4 to 6 cups). Cover and cook on high until corned beef is tender, 4 1/4 hours (or 8 1/2 hours on low).
