  1. Great recipe. This is my first corned beef, very scary! This wss a delicous recipe. The butter on tge potstos and cabbage made it much more flavorful, I omited the oarsly since my husband wanted it to lok more traditional. It couldve had better texture if I didnt freeze it. Itvwss abit tougher tgen I love bug all and all great
