Guinness® Corned Beef


"I discovered this tasty St. Patrick's day treat when I attended an Irish Rovers Concert. My family and friend insist that it is a staple at get togethers any time of the year. Roast this Corned Beef slowly at a low setting for a melt in your mouth delight. The aroma is fantastic!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Rinse the beef completely and pat dry.
  2. Place the brisket on rack in a roasting pan or Dutch oven. Rub the brown sugar on the corned beef to coat entire beef, including the bottom. Pour the bottle of stout beer around, and gently over the beef to wet the sugar.
  3. Cover, and place in preheated oven. Bake for 2 1/2 hours. Allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing.


  • Editor's Note
  • During the last hour, you may put vegetables in the roasting pan as well. Try a wedge of cabbage, new potatoes, onion, carrots, etc. You may need to add a little more beer with your vegetables.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Excellent. I've made this twice in the crockpot and learned a few things. You do have to cover the meat with the liquid or the parts not submerged will get bitter. It took two cans of Guiness...

I opted for the slow cooker since it seamed fool-proof and should have been very tender. But no. Started the cooker at 7am St. Patty's Day. 11 hours later I stuck a fork to it. Brick. Fork would...

I wish I could give it 10 stars. I was very nervous about making this since it is not the norm. I made this for st. Paddy's day for a true Irish family(my husbands) and they loved it ( I also di...

Wow! Very good! My first time making corned beef and it’s so easy and tuned out so wonderful! I made it with a 2.5lb flat cut corned beef brisket and used 1 can of Murphys instead of Guinness, c...

This recipe MUST be cooked in a slow cooker, on low, all day if you want it to be juicy and tender!! Make sure you buy Flat cut corned beef instead of Point cut too. I've made it a few times an...

Absolutely delicious! I put in a crockpot on high for 8 hours. Added red potatoes, carrots, and onions with 3 hours to go, then cabbage with 1 hour to go. Will definitely make again. Thanks for...

This is a terrific recipe. I read all of the other reviews, and (with very few exceptions) the only complaint I read was that it's too tough. This is purely a function of how long you cook it;...

This is now the only way I cook corned beef. I also cook it in a crockpot. It is easier and comes out so tender. Make sure to not use the spices that come with the meat - just use the brown suga...
