Here’s what I’ll be preparing tomorrow:

  1. Put unpeeled red potatoes and chopped up carrots into the crockpot first.  I put in enough to fill the crockpot about half way.
  2. Put the bricket on top (fat side down).  I buy one that has a little “seasoning” packet it with it.  I put the seasoning packet on top.
  3. Cover with a couple cups of water (to cover the veggies) and cook on high for about 6 hours.
  4. Cut one head of cabbage into 1/8ths and put that on top of the brisket.  Cook until the cabbage looks nice and tender.
  5. Take the brisket out, and place in a baking pan.  Cover the brisket (both sides) with spicy brown mustard and then sprinkle on brown sugar.  Rough estimates: I probably use about 1/2 cup of mustard and 1 cup of brown sugar.
  6. Bake the brisket at 350 for about 20 minutes.
  7. Broil the brisket about 3-5 minutes on each side so the outside becomes crispy, glazed goodness.
  8. Serve up your veggies and brisket together.  Enjoy.

Seriously, this is so good.  Very flavorful, and the crispy outside layer makes it different and a much better texture than most corned beef I’ve had.  Mmmmmmmmmmm.  πŸ™‚

My husband and I (well my husband Wink) “corn” our own beef. The brisket has been in it’s brine since the weekend.

We typically do a very standard corned beef and cabbage recipe with red potatoes (P.S. we always use baby red potatoes. I like it better than the standard ones) and such, pickling spice.

This year we’re trying a different one from Jaden via Steamy Kitchen.

Guinness Corned Beef with Cabbage

Can’t go wrong with Guinness in food!

It sounds delish!

@penguin:

Oh btw! I just found this recipe where they use Guinness in the brine in lieu of just water! I’m so bummed I just found it! I’m earmarking for next year’s brine. This year we’ll have to settle for our boring typical brine. Wink

And P.S. I don’t know about you & Mr. Pengy but my husband and I are VERY robust spice people. Looking at that recipe on allrecipes I would probably double or even triple the spices. The first time we made corned beef and cabbage by a recipe after we tasted it we had to up the spices by quite a bit.

How did everyone’s Corned Beef and Cabbage turn out??

Ours was definitely the best yet! We’re completely sold on Jaden’s recipe.

Corned beef + Guinness + Oven = Genius!

It was so super tender and cooking the veggies in the Guinness broth was yummy.

@penguin:

We doubled our recipe and probably used about 2-3 whole onions, 3 whole heads of garlic, same amount of pickling spice (since the corned beef already had it in the brine), salt, pepper and as always Garlic Salt!
