1 (5 1/2 pound)
corned beef brisket with spice packet
potatoes, peeled and diced
carrots, peeled and diced
I made this 3/17/08. I believe I have found the recipe for me! I added cabbage during the last 1 1/2 hours. This turned out awesome. This was by far the best corned beef I have ever made. My husband really liked it and made sure he got the leftovers!
What on earth did I do wrong?? This was EXTREMELY salty. I did everything according to the recipe directions with the exception of just putting a dash, and I do mean a dash of salt yet it was so salty we just couldn't eat it. I was so disappointed. The meat was very tender and juicy and it smelled DELICIOUS as it was cooking though. If I can find a way to make it without it being so salty I would. Maybe corned beef brisket is just salty to begin with...I'm not sure because I've never made it before.
I did this recipe in the slow cooker instead and did not add the salt. It turned out fantastic! My family love it!
Very good, alot easier than boiling, however the secret to the salt issue. When cooking corned beef ALWAYS wash in cold water before cooking. This gets a lot of the salt out.
My family and I loved this recipe (even my 4 year old that will not eat anything). The Corned Beef does have a strong flavor when done so I would not recommend this to someone who likes their food with subtle flavor. One warning is it does not need more salt added. Part of the strong flavor does come from the salt already added to the corned beef. I would definitely make this again. Since this review I made the recipe many times. I also made it in the crock pot and it worked very well. I cooked it on low for 6 to 7 hours and when it had an hour left I added the potatoes and carrots.
This was good, great alternative to boiling the corned beef. I'll do this again!
Awsome recipe but salt shouldn't be used in it, was too salty, otherwise was easy to prepare. Delicious. Thank you.
Tried this but it is too salty and we only ate a few mouthsful. I think you need to cover the meet with liquid to pull out the excess salt.
