Reviews for Corned Beef and Cabbage
"Really good flavor. I am not a corn beef eater but this is delicious."
"I made this last night the corn beef was great. I actually cooked the potatoes and carrots separate due to space in my dutch oven. I actually added a spoonful of minced garlic to the recipe. I actually cooked mine almost 4 hours. It smelled amazing."
"I made this yesterday in my dutch oven. It turned out perfectly. I did have to cook it a little longer in the dutch oven on simmer about 30 minutes so a total of 3 hours. I also substituted one quart of water for a quart of hard cider beer which was a nice twist, with that change I omitted the apple juice. I also added red potatoes to the vegetable mix. My husband said this one is a keeper."
"This was a nice St. Patrick's Day meal! The orange flavor of the rub was great! As another reviewer suggested, I cut down the cloves to 1/8 tsp. I didn't have any apple juice, so I quartered an apple to cook with the meat. It didn't seem to miss that liquid. I also cooked some chunks of potatoes with the vegetables - it was all delicious!"
"We love corned beef and cabbage. This recipe was so simple but added a nice twist with the mustard/brown sugar rub. I had a 2.5 lb brisket and would cut back on the rub just a bit. The orange zest and clover gave a nice unexpected flavor too. The only other changes I made were to add 3 med to small potatoes, peeled and quartered with the carrots to cook and then thickened a bit of the broth after removing the vegetables. It made a unique tasting, light gravy."
"This was very tasty and my family loved it! Would add more carrots next time, since they went in a flash."
"Very Good... I only did a few shavings of orange zest and I did not use cloves. I am pleasantly surprised how good this came out. I cut potatoes, onions and carrots and cooked them in the broth from the meat. It is so yummy, I cannot wait for dinner so everyone can taste it. I am always afraid to try new things with my foods. I stick to what I know and grew up eating. I am glad I tried this..."
"Very good! We really enjoyed this! Loved the rub on the meat, will use less sugar next time in the rub.and I cut up cabbage and added to liquid with carrots. Really good."
