Corned Beef & Cabbage Easy Style

"The onion soup mix give the corned beef a milder flavor than using peppercorns if you have someone who doesn't care for the pepper. Making it in the crockpot is so much simpler than boiling it on the stove. My dad loves this so its what we make every year."

    I must have done something wrong, but what can go wrong with a recipe like this, unless I had a bad cut of corned beef. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out horrible. I put carrots in with the beef and cabbage and the beer taste was quite overpowering, especially for the carrots. The meat was chewy -- the worst meal I've ever made. This was the first time I made corned beef. I'm determined to try again, though. I'll be more selective in my beef purchase next time, will use a milder beer or maybe I'll just try another recipe.

    What a PERFECT recipe! Outstanding taste. I used a cream ale beer I had on hand and think it really added to the flavor of the meat. Even the pickiest of my kids had to admit to liking this!

    Delicious! I had wanted to make this for the ZWT3 Great Britain Region after my Teammate Shari2 made it and said it was awesome, but the store near my house didn't have any briskets! I went to a SuperStore across town and they had them so better late than never:) DH and I think this is the best recipe we have had for Corned Beef. I put it in at 7am on "low" and had DH turn it to "keep warm" about noon as I was out all day. (My crock pot cooks on the hot side so "keep warm" is probably like low.) We weren't able to eat until 5-ish so the meat was fall apart tender and still very juicy. The cabbage was super soft the way I like it. I used St Pauli Girl for the beer and I did put the seasoning packets that come with the corned beef into a tea ball and dropped it in as well. I highly recommend this recipe. I do apologize for lack of photo, but cabbage made the way I like it is not appealing in appearance :) We are having the leftovers in sandwiches for work. Thanks for posting, into the keeper file this goes! Nick's Mom

    This was very quick and easy to make. I also threw in some potatoes with mine. It smelled great as it was cooking and the taste was great too. Thanks for posting.
