I had come across some red meat, that appeared to be a roast to me, at the supermarket on sale. When I got it home I looked closer and found it was corned beef. I had never made corned beef before, or even tried it and this recipe seemed pretty interesting. I forgot to bring the recipe home so I just winged it from memory. (Not very well!) I just took the beef out, placed it in the crock pot, layered it with about a cup of brown sugar and dumped in almost a whole pint of Guinness Extra Stout letting my boyfriend finish the rest, (Ew!) Because it was "extra stout" and I'm not too keen on the bitterness I added more sugar after about 3 hours. I cooked it on low for the first 3 hours, then on high for another 2 (we were getting lots of snow and I was afraid we might lose power!) It seemed kind of dry so I turned it over and cooked for another hour. (The other side was flakier.) I also cut up carrots and put them about halfway through the last hour. It came out good. Interesting taste. We enjoyed it with the carrots and some boiled potatos and cabbage. I think they would have been better if the potatos and cabbage were cooked with it. I would recommend trying this recipe.
