"I found this recipe on another site and it is without doubt my favorite recipe for corned beef and cabbage. The orange just gives the meat a totally different flavor than what I'm used to. My son-in-law who also loves cabbage said this is the best cabbage, bar none, that he has ever tasted. I have also made the corned beef in a crock pot, cooking for 7 to 8 hours on low."

"Really appreciate this recipe. It was uber easy and tasted great. Less salty than what I'm used to which was wonderful. Not sure if that's the orange at work or what. Thanks!"
"I love it!!! I have been doing mine in the crockpot or stovetop for 30 years, but this was truly the best."
"OMG!!! I usually cook it in my crockpot, but I realized I forgot to put it in before I left for work. I was looking for a recipe that wouldn't need to be in the crockpot and take 8 hours. So....I tried this one! I don't think I will ever cook it in the crockpot again! It was so yummy AND tender....it just fell apart! I really liked the flavor of the oranges also! Nice change!! Thanks again!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed your recipe for our St. Patty's dinner. The cabbage is outstanding and truly made this dish. I used a small head of cabbage and a 3 1/2 pound Corned Beef and followed your same instructions for the larger piece of meat. Thanks, Mary K. W. for posting.. A definite keeper!"
"I made this tongiht and it was GREAT! I cooked the cabbage a little longer and loved it."
"I made this tonight for St. Patrick's Day dinner and followed the recipe as written. I'm sorry to write that no one in my family liked this recipe. I will not be making it again."
"I've been cooking bland boiled corned beef & cabbage all my life & liking it. Tonight I wanted to kick it up a notch and your recipe was incredible. DH was at the local VFW where they were serving the usual boiled fare for $8 a plate. When he came home to my St. Patty's dinner I only charged him $7.50 & he's still raving. I cooked potatos and added them to the cabbage & apples at the end, then drizzled the meat juices over them before serving. Thank you so much."
"I made it for supper tonight and it was much tastier than the usual soggy version I made every year. I put it together in the morning, then left the easy instructions for my teenage son to finish and I went to the opera. When I got home, supper was ready and waiting. We served it with slices of a thick German country bread and butter (Beckman's). The oranges enhanced the flavor the beef and I was pleasantly surprised to see that even with four hours in the oven, it didn't dry out. The only think differently we did was substitute butter for the margarine. Thank you for sharing this great recipe! I will definitely make it again."
"This is now my favorite recipe for corned beef and cabbage...It is wonderful tasting, easy to prepare, and a definite crowd pleaser! I usually only make corned beef and cabbage once a year, for Saint Patricks day! After having this for dinner my family has requested it more often!"
"Wow! I have to tell you I had my doubts about this recipe. I'm not big on sweetly flavored meats but this wasn't that way at all. I baked my 3lb brisket @325Â° for 2 3/4hrs. otherwise following the recipe as written, including the cabbage. Next time I'll try the full 4 hours even for the smaller cut just to see if it would get even more tender. What an outstanding way to prepare the cabbage. We'll definitely be having that again and soon. Thanks, Mary. This one's a keeper."
"This made a delightful St. Patrick's day lunch for 8 of my lucky family members. My mom & dad were lucky enough to take home the leftovers. I made this the night before so I could serve it the following day at my Grandmother's house without having to cook it in the oven for 4 hours. She suggested I slice it while it was cold and then put the slices together in the roasting pan and reheat in 350F oven for about 20 minutes. This worked really well since hot corned beef easily shreds when you cut it. We just cooked the cabbage at her house too, which made lunch indredibly easily. Thank you Mary K.W. on behalf of my family!"
"I was given a very similar recipe by a friend over 30 years ago. This is the only way we cook corned beef now. It is delicious"
