I was at Sam's club today and they had nice looking slabs of corned beef brisket. I have NEVER tried corned beef and I am not adventurous when it comes to food but I figured I would try it. I thought that the corning? process involved salt but I had no idea it was a pickled flavor. The technician who works for me told me it has a pickled flavor and he loves it so I guess I will end up bringing it in to him to eat for lunches. I plan on putting potatoes and cabbage with it but wonder if there is another way to prepare it to minimize the pickle flavor?
