I started with the flat piece of corned beef and rinsed it under cold water to get rid of some of the greasiness. I also cut off as much of the fat as possible. I rubbed it all over with brown sugar and placed it in a crockpot. I didn't have Guinness, so I poured a bottle of Sam Adams Winter Ale around the meat, then water to cover. I also used the spice packet included in the corned beef. I cooked it for about 3 hours, added chopped potatoes, onions, and thinly sliced carrots and cooked another 6 hours, for a total of about 9 hours. It was super tender and delicious. Even my picky kids loved it!
