This is the easiest corned beef and cabbage recipe I've ever tried, and it was delicious! I cooked a 2.5 pound brisket, and used 1/2 a head of cabbage, but left all other measurements the same. Cooked on low for first 3 hours, then turned to high and added the cabbage. (I like cabbage a bit less mushy.) Added just 1/4 cup of water when I added the cabbage, and cooked another 3.5 hours on high. The juices from the corned beef permeated the cabbage, and the corned beef was fall-apart tender. Served this with the traditional boiled potatoes for an early St. Pat's dinner. Leftovers will make great sandwiches! Faith and begorrah, Mirj, this one's a keeper! :o)
I appreciate someone who does not load up the pot with carrots. I add just one single carrot to sweeten the cabbage.
My family uses a few more spices, but this is THE BEST UK food I've ever had! (Every single St. Patrick's day I can remember... This is good...)
I followed the recipe to a T. The meat was delicious, glad I did not add water to the pot. However, the cabbabe was mush. Next time, I will add the cabbage much later, or boil it separately. I understand the vegetables in the pot helps create the juices so I will keep the onions in there next time. Thank you for an easy to follow recipe.
Totally Awesome and easy. I like a few carrots and potatoes in mine which i added the last 3 hours. Will definattly make again
This is so great and the only way I will make my corned beef! This recipe has been a St. Patrick's day tradition for my family for 3 years now and I thought it was about time I rated it!
Made this for our St. Paddy's Dinner and served with Traditional Brown Irish Soda Bread and it was perfect. I'd never made it before or even tasted it for that matter but as it's one of DH's fav I was glad to find this recipe that not only went together easy and fast, but tasted wonderful. Wish I'd had some carrots to add to the mix but didn't have a one. No matter this was just what I was looking for and I'll be making it again next year.
This is the simplest, easiest and excellent way to do corned beef! I cooked a small one with 2 potatoes and a small head of cabbage - On low for 8 hours Lovely tender and the cabbage was MMmm good
Changed nothing but did add two cups of water to this at the beginning.
This was a huge hit in our house! The corned beef was so tender and had great flavor. I actually added about a cup of red wine to the cooking process (an old trick from my Dad) and I really thought that added a wonderful flavor! I served this with the Irish Soda Bread and everyone loved it!
