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.
I Plan on making this Tomorrow for Actual St Patricks day dinner. My question is... Do I add the spice packet and stuff that comes with the Corned beef or leave it out? It doesn't say in the recipe. Another poster said she used the spice packet that comes with the corned beef so thinking that's what I should do.
I made this last year for a company dinner, and it was overwhelmingly decided the best dish present! I'm getting ready to make it again for home this year. My wife doesn't like cabbage, and she's never had corned beef, but I've promised her she'll love this recipe! Thanks to the creator of this dish!
LOVED IT! Made the recipe exactly as described and it was delicious. I've only made corned beef one time before and I just boiled it on the stove with the little spice packet that it came with. What a difference!! The Guiness added such a great flavor to it, and the leftovers just got better and better. Even my kindergartener and 18 month old liked it!! This is the first recipe that I have made off of this website, and I will certainly be coming back!
I will never make corned beef any other way. I thought the toughness of the meat was from not having high quality. I was not cooking low and slow enough! It nearly fell apart into lovely, fragrant, tasty-tangy pieces. Tender, lovely!!! The crockpot method made all the difference in the world.
Great corn beef and cabbage recipe. Could not have been easier and the results were great. There was plenty for everyone, with lots left over. I see some cornbeef on rye sandwiches in my lunch box on Monday. I didn't change a thing on this recipe--the recipe is perfect as it. Thanks for posting.
I skipped the veggies, and just did the corned beef in the beer and spices! It was great! Thank you!
Wonderful! The first recipe I made in my first crockpot. Super successful: easy to make, the veggies all came out perfectly cooked, the meat was tender and delicious, and DH loved it. The largest corned beef brisket I could find was 2.67 lbs; there's just enough left for two meager sandwiches! I made this exactly as called for except for throwing in the spice packet that came with the brisket. Thanks Rita, this recipe goes into my new "My Favorites" cookbook.
