    3. 3
      Add onions, bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a rolling boil.
    4. 4
      Cover pot and reduce heat to medium-low for a gentle boil.

      Add carrots, potatoes and place cabbage quarters on top of the meat.
    7. 7
      Cook for an additional half-hour until the vegetables are tender. Turn off heat.

      I had never tried beer or onion before and it tasted very good. I used the spice packets in a tea infuser (I had 2 corned beefs) and I skipped carrots. Thanks!

      I just discovered the beauty of adding beer to the corned beef water. Your directions are just as I do it. This works in the crock pot too but can take up to 6 hours. I typically my veggies in a separate pot.
