This is the first corned beef and cabbage recipe I have ever made. It was so good that I have no need to ever try another. Besides the fact that it was very easy to make, it tastes amazing! My boyfriend says it is his new favorite dish. The only thing I would recommend is to trim the majority of fat off of the brisket because it tends to either stay on the meat, or melt off into your vegetables.

The meat came out great but I was disappointed with the vegetables. I followed the recipe except I left out the potatoes and added more onion. The vegetables were really bland. I can't figure out where I went wrong. I did one hour on high and 6 hours on low. Next time I will put the meat on the bottom and add more seasoning.

Served this last night to husband and guests. Delicious! This will be my go-to recipe for corned beef! The only thing I will change is to steam the cabbage separately to retain the pretty green color, as putting it in the crock-pot made it an ugly brown (Tasty though!) Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

This was delicious by the recipe, but I may tweak it a little bit for more carrots & potatoes.

Easy to make and great flavor. Next time I will add the cabbage When is cooked half thru. The cabbage did not keep it's color.

I made this recipe, as is, and it was delicious. Definitely agree that maybe more potatoes and carrots.

This was one of the best recipes I've ever tried for corned beef. I liked the little hint of sweetness. I added brown sugar instead of white. I think 1-2 cups of water would be sufficient. I did not add the cabbage. I roasted that separately with onions in the oven, just because I like that better. I'm quite sure this will be my "go-to" recipe from now on for St. Patrick's Day!
