Dang I wish I would have read this earlier. That recipe looks yummy enough that I'm gonna try it even though St. Patty's is over. I remember you guys saying you loved it!

does the spice packet come with most corned beef or is this a seperate deal? I'll have to try this after I start feeling better. Right now the only thing that sounds good is the bathroom floor:)
