    Suze K's Note:

    Over the years, I developed this corned beef recipe for sandwiches. If I'm making it for a party, I make 3-4 briskets because it's always the first thing to go. Don't be afraid of the amount of garlic--no one has ever complained that it's too garlicky. It can also be used to make the traditional corned beef & cabbage meal by removing the beef once it's fully cooked and adding cabbage, carrots, potatoes, etc. to the cooking liquid--only adds about 30 more minutes to the cooking time.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Remove briskets from wrapping and place in large pot or crockpot. Rinse if you don't like the brine coating.
    2. 2
      Add contents of 1 spice packet (discard 2nd spice packet or reserve for other use), the beer, peppercorns and bay leaves.
    3. 3
      Break garlic head apart and peel each clove. Add entire head to the pot.
    4. 4
      Add enough water to cover the meat by 1 inch. NOTE: the briskets will float, so I put a heavy heat-resistant plate or bowl on top to keep them submerged.
    5. 5
      STOVETOP: Turn heat to high and bring contents to a boil. Turn heat to a low simmer; cover and cook for 6 hours or more.
    6. 6
      CROCKPOT: Set on high cover; cook for 8-10 hours.
    7. 7
      When done, using 2 large spoons or spatulas, carefully remove briskets to serving platter and let rest. The meat will be extremely tender, and will easily break apart if you use a meat fork.
    8. 8
      If using for sandwiches, tightly wrap each brisket in plastic and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before slicing. If you want to shred the meat, there is no need to refrigerate--just cut in thick slices and shred each slice.
    9. 9
      If serving as corned beef & cabbage, once meat is removed, transfer cooking liquid to large pot (if using crockpot), bring cooking liquid to boil and add vegetables. Cover and cook 30 minutes.

      This is a flawless corned beef recipe... I found it first on and was searching to see if anyone had posted it here. It's here, so I don't have to post it... but I had to have it on file for my husband. He just used his lunch hour to go to the grocery store... he bought a brisket and dropped it by the house, begging for this for dinner tonight. Putting it in the crockpot now! I've seen Guiness draught recommended as the beer, but we use whatever's in the house that he doesn't particularly value.

      Too bad they only give 5 stars because this one desserves at least 10. It is the best recipe for conred beef we ever ate.
