Well, after the long 10 hours, the small potatoes were still semi-hard, but it is a great dish, the meat was superb. I downsized the recipe online to 6 people but it barely fit in my big crockpot. It's a good recipe, I guess I need to do it again to get it perfect.
I've made this for the last 5 years for St. Pat's Day, and it's wonderful! The potatoes depend on your crock pot. I've made this in 2 different ones; one cooked them perfectly, the other runs cooler and the potatoes don't quite get cooked. Just finish them in a pyrex in the oven. I corn my own venison, and this recipe works perfectly!
Yummy! My hubby said he doesn't like corned beef but I made him try it anyways and he loved it! :) Now he wants me to make it a regular meal. Thanks! PS. I did add the packet that came with the brisket and instead of pepper I used 6 peppercorns.
