Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
If the trail cook had the time to cook beans to tenderness, he certainly had time to cook corned beef. It is my experience that dried beans need 4-6 hours of cooking to become tender. Soaking them overnight will reduce this time a bit, and cooking them with some of the spices in a pressure cooker for about an hour does the trick nicely. Pressure cookers didn't seem to be on the trail cooks wagon, however.
