Corned Beef with Cabbage, Potatoes and Carrots

To cook this meal in the Combi Steam Oven I would recommend using a casserole pan deeper than the more shallow solid steam pan. The basic recipe for Corned Beef is to simmer the meat for approximately 3 hours in a covered casserole then adding in the potatoes, carrots and cabbage to cook all together for the final 35 minutes or so. Certainly an easy delicious meal. 

However, you won’t have to cover the meat completely, so just add enough water to cover ½ up the side of the pan.

1 - 2-3lb Corned Beef

2 - lbs, medium sized red potatoes, cut into quarters

6 - medium carrots, peeled and cut into 3” diagonal chunks

1 - head white cabbage, core removed, cut into wedges


Choose the combination Convection Steam Mode 300 degrees or if your oven has a Humidity Setting choose 100% Humidity + 300 degrees.

Check the meat with a fork after 3 hours of cooking time, if it’s beginning to soften then add the vegetables otherwise cook it a little longer before adding them.

Take the beef out of the packet and rinse to remove excess sodium then place in a casserole or large pan at 4” in depth.  Heat the oven as directed, add enough liquid to come at least halfway up the side of the pan, stir in the spice packet if using and place in the oven.

Remember to slice the beef thinly across the grain and you can heat the  sliced beef in some of the cooking juice to make really delicious sandwiches.

BBQ Pulled Turkey

Turkey pieces slowly braised in a homemade BBQ sauce then pulled off the bone and served with cornbread or soft rolls is a delicious easy dish to prepare and a perfect dish for entertaining. This dish can be cooked covered in Convection or uncovered in the Steam oven.

The homemade BBQ sauce is also key to achieving great flavor with this recipe so begin by preparing the BBQ sauce and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, season the turkey pieces and set them aside to absorb the flavors. Even though the skin is discarded when shredding the turkey, braising the turkey with the skin on does add to the fat content but most importantly it adds great flavor.

For the BBQ sauce

2 tbsp butter + 1tbs oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine the following ingredients

3/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

¾ cup ketchup

1 Tbsp tomato paste

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp dry mustard powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 cup water

For the turkey

2 bone-in turkey thighs or a combination of bone-in  leg and thigh or leg and breast

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp pepper

1 Tbsp chipotle chili in adobo sauce (optional)


A large oven-safe pan or Dutch oven is ideal for preparing the sauce then you can just put the turkey pieces into the sauce and transfer the pan to the oven. Otherwise, prepare the sauce in an oven safe casserole, and add the turkey pieces.

Saute the onions in the butter and oil over moderate heat until softened. Stir in the garlic and cook gently for a few minutes then add the remaining sauce ingredients that you have combined. Simmer over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, season the turkey pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.

Heat the oven, Convection Bake 325F (163C) or Steam Braising 325F (163C). 

Add the turkey pieces to the BBQ sauce and stir in the Chipotle Chili pepper if using. These peppers add a wonderful touch of smokey heat to the sauce. Place the pan in the oven (covered if using Convection) and cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is very tender and easily falls off the bone.

In order to “pull” the turkey remove the pieces from the hot sauce and set aside to cool. Remove the skin, discard the bones and shred the meat by hand or with a fork and knife. Return to the pulled turkey to the sauce and reheat if needed before serving.
