My First corned Beef Brisket

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Since I'm a blonde Irish Lassie, I thought I would try my skills at making a corned beef brisket. My cousin said it was easy. Just boil it for 5 hours, add your potatoes and cabbage and you're good to go. Could you put it in a crock pot? Would you do it that way? I suppose I could look it up in our recipes but I would rather my SPFriends??? emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Ty Bama...I added the seasonings and in my crock pot, cooked it for 8 hours on high. My cousin said to boil it so I converted it to the crock. I like the longer and slower version you suggested. Unfortunately, I did not like the beef but I promised to cook more for my Hubs. He gets the sandwiches which he is glad not having to share... emoticon .ty again

  My reply is too late for St. Pat's Day--- but I make corned beef in my crock pot and it is just delicious! I place the brisket in the pot, cover with water, (sprinkle in the seasonings if you like)---- I put the knob on high for about two hours, then turn down to low and continue cooking for a total of 10 to 12 hours.
I refrigerate leftovers for Reuben sandwiches. The chilled meat is easily sliced in thin tender slices. YUM!
