I love this recipe! Very simple to throw together. I cooked it in the crockpot overnight to bring to work today. I made this as stated in the recipe, but I only put in the cabbage during the last hour of cooking (4.25 lb brisket, cooked 8 hrs on low). People at work raved about it, they couldn't believe how tender it was. GREAT flavor with these spices rather than the seasoning packet that comes with the corned beef. I will definitely be making this again.

Excellent. Followed recipe as written. The Guinness and soaking and rinsing the beef made this dish! The spices were just perfect.

This recipe wad amazing, however I just altered it slightly by rubbing 2 tsp of brown sugar. I also swapped out the Guinness draught with the stout. There was no bitterness at all. There was only tender goodness. It was great.

We love this corned beef! I love Guinness so I really enjoyed the flavor plus it is so tender! The leftovers are great for sandwiches.

I had friends over and made this in the crockpot, adding the potatoes and carrots toward the end. It cooked about 8 hours. I had no room for the cabbage, so I transferred everything to a big stock pot the last half hour or so. I added the seasonings as stated, except that in place of allspice I used equal parts of cinnamon and nutmeg. I also used the seasoning packet that came with the beef. To cover the beef I used two mexican beers that I had on hand. Next time I'll use the Guiness. I served the horseradish sauce from Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner for the Slow Cooker. It turned out great and I got compliments all around!

This was so good and so very easy!This was my second time ever having made corned beef and cabbage and this one was better then the first!I used a can of Guinness as directed and cooked it in a crock pot on high for three hour with only the meat,beer,1 1/2 cups h2o,2 lg onions, and seasonings.I flipped the meat over at the top of every hr and I then added the potatoes and let that cook for an hour.Finally added the cabbage for the last hour so it didn't end up as moosh.I did add four beef bouillon cubes to amp up the beefiness.So very easy..threw it in the crock pot and basically didn't have to worry about it!Thanks for posting cuz I will be making this many times again!

The Guinness lends a totally different flavor to the corned beef in this dish! Everyone loved it. We served it alongside Emerald Green Punch, Dublin Coddle, Lazy Irish Beer Bread, and Nutty Irishmen. Thanks!

I've been married for 9 years and I've made corned beef and cabbage for every St Patrick's Day. Each year we eat it on the holiday and then throw it away the next day because it's so bland and boring. Your recipe was fantastic!!! I can't wait to eat the leftovers. This will be the recipe I use from now on. Thank you so much for posting.

This is the best corned beef recipe I've ever had in my life. After browning it, I put it in the oven at 320. In place of all of the spices, I used pickling spices... Which are very similar to all of the spices in this recipe. I did add garlic too. Delicious! Even my kids ate it and loved it! Pretty impressive as they've never had corned beef, are picky, and are only ages 5 and 9! My husband is quite a foodie and loved it too. A complete crowd pleaser!
