This wasn't too bad. I really like the corned beef, but the vegetables, especially the carrots and potatoes, had a really overpowering and bitter beer taste. I made the recipe exactly as written, except for cutting back on the garlic and onion powders per the other reviewer's recommendation (I used 1.5 tbsp of each). I'd say that 2 tbsp of each is probably sufficient. This recipe could also benefit from using more vegetables, as 1/2 lb of baby carrots and potatoes isn't very much. I'd recommend using only half the beer and sprinkling some of the spice packet into the liquid, not just on top of the beef. The meat was really tender though, and Im looking forward to eating it in a sandwich for lunch tomorrow.
