I rarely make corned beef because they usually turn out tough or stringy, but a local store had brisket on sale for 50% off, so I decided to try one more time to cook one. After making this recipe, I sent my husband to buy 3-4 more before the sale ends! The meat was tender and delicious! I used a bottle of Guinness Extra Stout and poured the spice pack into a cheesecloth bag and added them to the crock pot with the brisket. I also roasted the whole bulb of garlic in the oven for approximately 30 mins before adding it to the crock pot and cooking it all for about 10 hours on Low. We loved the meat on ruebens last night and I'm sure we will love the hash I make with the leftover brisket in the morning! Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe and restoring my faith in brisket made at home!
