This was my very first corned beef I ever made. I made on St. Patrick's day for company and everone LOVED it! The potatoes came out wonderful!! We also made reubens out of some of the corned beef. I made a point of telling everyone "DON'T EAT THE CARROTS!!" It was a very fun evening! Thanks!

DH brought home some corned beef (which I've never made before) so I tried this recipe. I couldn't find any small cabbages so I tried one large one instead. Very tasty, I had been half expecting to hate corned beef and was pleasantly surprised. Thanks

this was the leanest corned beef i have ever made, i used a 6 qt crockpot, layered the bottom with the sliced onion, 10 med red potatoes, halved, unpeeled, 2 handfuls of baby carrots, put a 4 lb corned beef atop, doubled the broth mix and i could barely shut it, but a few hours the kitchen smelled wonderful. after hours i turned the beef over and added the cabbage This wonderful meal was devoured, the full house and extras loved it!

I used a mixture of two recipes. I used this one (only a 1/2 cup of bouillon, used a 4lb brisket, 2 medium onions, 1 head of cabbage cut in small wedges) and added 1/2 tsp of pepper, 3 tbsp cider vinegar, 3 tbsp sugar and 2 cups water. Served with the Mustard Sauce (#21617). Everyone LOVED it. I will make this every St. Patty's Day; it was so easy! Also, the broth from the recipe was wonderful so we used it to make soup!

Cooked on high 7 hours~~added cabbage at the 5 hour mark. Next time, I will add cabbage at the beginning and add more worcestershire sauce & garlic salt. Also, I'll cook at least 10 hours on low and cut the veggies into smaller chunks to make sure they get all done. They were still fairly crisp. This was great with Mustard Sauce #21617

Much faster and easier than using the traditional one the stove method. I used beef broth and added red potatoes; omitted the celery. Thanks!

Quite excellent! Such an easy recipe and loved the flavor. I let it cook for about 11 hours, adding the cabbage the last two hours. I was thinking it might be too salty because of the bouillon, but it wasn't. The leftovers made a great reuben sandwich. Thanks for posting the recipe.

This was the first corned beef I've made and it turned out great. I didn't have all the vegetables to add in with it (just put some onion on the bottom) but it wasn't lacking any flavor at all. I did find it to be a bit on the dry side after I sliced it up so I tossed the slices back into the cooking liquid for a little bit and it soaked up the juices and was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe :)

Made this tonight for St. Patty's Day and it was a big, big hit with the whole family. The cabbage wasn't quite done after an hour and a half, so next time I will put it in a little earlier. Otherwise, it was great! Thanks for posting!

What a great meal! Smells so good when you arrive home from work and tastes just as great! What an easy weekday meal and everyone cleaned their plates! Even my DH that said he didn't like corned beef - asked for seconds. Made recipe exactly as posted - except didn't have caraway seeds.
