Tip
If your corned beef doesn't have its own seasoning packet, place 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns, 6 whole cloves and 1 dried bay leaf on a piece of cheesecloth and tie with string. Add the packet to the cooker.
Corned beef was originally "corned," or preserved with granular salt, because there was no refrigeration. Today, the beef is cured in brine and spices are added for a distinctive tangy flavor.
