1 (4 pound)
lean raw corned beef brisket
celery, cut into halves
carrots, cut into 4-inch pieces
1 1/4 pounds
red potatoes, quartered
Savoy cabbage, cut into 6 wedges
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle
Irish stout beer
hot water, as needed
grated horseradish, drained
I would add the potatoes, carrots and celery after 4 - 5 hours of cooking time - they were overdone. The sauce of horseradish/sour cream added a great touch.
The only exception to this recipe I made was to cook 8 hours at Low, instead of High. The meat was done perfectly and the vegetables were cooked wonderfully- not too mushy at all. But I didn't need a recipe to cook a hunk of meat and some veggies. I was looking for flavor-- and I got it; too much! I was skeptical of 3 tablespoons of pickling spice, but went ahead with it. Big mistake. Everything was overpowered by the very strong flavor of the McCormick's brand pickling spice. I also felt like the use of a stout was a waste. I've cooked corned beef and cabbage before without the stout, and I didn't find it to add anything to this dish. The flavor of the beer was completely cooked out. Finally, I found the texture of the Savoy cabbage to be unpleasant. I definitely would have preferred plain old green cabbage. The one redeeming quality in this recipe is the sauce, which is pretty good, but really not anything too unique. I will never use this recipe again, and would not recommend it.
looks easy and we are having a big dinner Wed.
This is incredible. I have never had corned beef fall apart like this did (it's a good thing). Kind of a purist and was feeling kind of weird about a sauce on corned beef...But it was quite tasty!
Great, easy recipe. The corned beef was so tender and juicy.
The meat was very good, but beer gave an odd taste to the veggies. Two of my family commented (and only tasted the veggies) and I hadn't even told them I'd cooked the corned beef with stout beer. I don't plan to use this recipe next time.
