    The cheap piece of brisket was deliciously tasty and tender, however, the veg were soggy, bland and discoloured. Next time I'll cook the meat as described but the veg I'll do separately.  -  01 Dec 2013


    I made this 3/17/08. I believe I have found the recipe for me! I added cabbage during the last 1 1/2 hours. This turned out awesome. This was by far the best corned beef I have ever made. My husband really liked it and made sure he got the leftovers!  -  20 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did this recipe in the slow cooker instead and did not add the salt. It turned out fantastic! My family love it!  -  27 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
