1/9 Photos of Corned Beef and Cabbage in Guinness

The Irish butcher at my market gave me a new (to me anyway) recipe for corned beef & cabbage; he told me to cook it in Guinness Draught. (Guinness stout will make the dish bitter). Since everyone raved about it, I thought I'd share the recipe he gave me. Note: Some reviewers have mentioned that the broth/sauce is very salty. It is important to rinse your corned beef in cold water before cooking it to remove some of the excess salt from the corning process. (I usually soak mine in cold water for a bit depending on the brand - some are much saltier than others). --- I have tried 5 times today to change the wording of the last ingredient on the list from "1-2lbs carrot, peeled and cut into 3-inch pieces" to "1 - 2 pounds of carrots, peeled and cut into 3-inch pieces". Every time the change "goes through," it does not reflect the new wording. Grrrrrrr!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 4 lbs flat cut corned beef brisket
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle Guinness draught (make sure you use Guinness draught, not stout as it will turn it bitter!)

- 1 bay leaf
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8-1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (to taste)

- 1 head cabbage, cut into wedges, rinsed and drained
- 6 medium white potatoes, peeled and quartered
