Recipe by Auntie Jan
The onion soup mix give the corned beef a milder flavor than using peppercorns if you have someone who doesn't care for the pepper. Making it in the crockpot is so much simpler than boiling it on the stove. My dad loves this so its what we make every year.

I must have done something wrong, but what can go wrong with a recipe like this, unless I had a bad cut of corned beef. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out horrible. I put carrots in with the beef and cabbage and the beer taste was quite overpowering, especially for the carrots. The meat was chewy -- the worst meal I've ever made. This was the first time I made corned beef. I'm determined to try again, though. I'll be more selective in my beef purchase next time, will use a milder beer or maybe I'll just try another recipe.
- 3 -4 lbs corned beef brisket
- 1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle beer (don't use light)
- 1 head of cabbage, cut into wedges
