Corned Beef shaped in a Meat Press

Apologies to everyone I have not caught up with lately, but I will get around to each of you eventually!  It has been so long since I posted anything here I have about forgotten how, so here is a picture from my dinner. I love corned beef! I made this last night in the 3 quart Instant Pot on pressure for 90 minutes, then placed in a stainless steel meat press which makes it easy to slice cold and then reheat. Portion control and all that, too.

It is tender and delicious. I got the dish at a yard sale this morning for $1 and consider it a lucky find as a deep dish pie plate like this could easily cost forty or fifty times that much. It is almost 3″ deep and 12″ in diameter.

Do you like to go to yard sales? Have you gotten any great bargains lately?

Do you like corned beef?

    • Oddly, we do not have yard sales near my summer home, vidocka, but down here 40 or 50 homeowners set up tables in their driveways every spring and every fall. They even have a charity that collects money by driving around in a golf cart selling cold drinks and hot dogs.

    • Hi Pamela, this dish I actually got at a Lot Sale in a manufactured home park, but I thought most people would not know what that is. They just have carports instead of garages and it is like a garage sale except that there are hundreds of them all on the same day, and they print up a map that shows which homeowners are participating. They are really fun.

    • Thank you ellie925, where I stay in the summer we don’t have this kind of sale, but in the spring and fall I live in an area that has lots and lots of them. I really enjoy going to them and almost always buy things.
