I think the beer adds too much of a bitter flavor to the meal, but I look forward to a week of corned beef sandwiches.

This was great! I made this corned beef (minus the veggies) to use in a recipe for mini reubens found on this website. It was delicious!

Pressed for time this St. Patrick's day, I wanted to utilize the slow cooker. I used one 12 oz. Deadeye Stout by Triton Brewing Co. and didn't measure the brown sugar. I just patted the meat dry and added the sugar. I probably only used 3/4 cup total. We really liked the taste of this meat, and 8 hours was perfect for the meat, but too long for the vegetables. I was worried the beer would make the dinner bitter, but it wasn't, at all. A nice meal that I would make again, only adding the vegetables about 1 - 1 1/2 hours after starting the meat. Thank you, COUNTRYRAY, for sharing your recipe.

Made this for dinner tonight, it was delicious. I used Coors Light (it was the only beer I had) and added some apple juice to give it more sweetness since some said it was bitter. I also omitted the cabbage since I am the only one who will eat it, this might have also made it less bitter.

I loved this! I thought the combination of the brown sugar and beer was a perfect blend of bitter and sweet and the meat was fall-apart tender and moist. Even my husband, who is not generally a fan of corned beef, loved it. The only change I made was to mix the spice packet (included with the corned beef I bought) in with the brown sugar before rubbing it on the beef. This will definitely be my go-to corned beef recipe from now on.
