I am so disappointed. I followed this recipe exactly and was very excited about it after reading the reviews. My piece of corned beef was 2.79 lbs. I started cooking with plenty of time, even though I figured it wouldn't take the 4 hours recommended for the 5+ lb. piece the recipe calls for. I checked after 2 hours and it was not nearly done, cooked it an hour longer and checked again. After cooking for almost 4 hours, I took it out, sure that it must be done and tender. Everything else was ready, but the meat was tough. I ended up having to put it in my pressure cooker and cook it for more than 30 minutes longer before it was tender. The flavor was good. I liked the subtle hint of orange. I won't use this recipe again though... back to boiling my corned beef.
