Making corned beef from scratch means you control the ingredients, no chemicals means better eating. I cook mine with carrots and cabbage.

This recipe turned out great! I added about 3/4 cup of cider vinegar as well as a lot more salt a dash of soy sauce and let the brisket marinate overnight (not wrapped). Instead of water I used a bottle of corona. My family LOVED this recipe! Read More

It wasn't horrible but if you prefer horseradish to mustard this is not the recipe for you. The texture was nice. I gave this recipe a two star rating because it was middle of the road considering I don't give anything a five unless it really blows me away probably twice in my life. Read More

Not enough of corned beef taste. Made the mistake of trying because I thought it might save me the cost of buying real corned beef bust it was a waste of my money. I stick to packaged corned beef cooked exactly as they wrote it in SLOW COOKED CORNED BEEF FOR SANDWICHES on this sight. Read More

OMG this was DELICIOUS!!! The only thing I did differently was to dump everything in the slow cooker right off the bat and leave it overnight. I also used a raw store bought corned beef brisket. Read More

I've been making Corn beef and cabbage for quite some time now and this recipe is a great twist. It is a very good change from the normal boiled dinner that Corn beef is. Thanks Read More

Loved it! My husband and I really enjoyed this. I did not allow the marinade to sit over night. Next time I will definately do this. I think it will be much better. Read More

I added some new potatoes and baby carrots with the cabbage. Although I should have cooked the potatoes and carrots longer the microwave saved them. Entire dinner was a great success. Thank you for sharing this great recipe! Read More
