"This was very tasty and my family loved it! Would add more carrots next time, since they went in a flash."
"I made this wonderful recipe the day before St. Patrick's Day. The mustard-brown sugar glaze gave the corned beef a nice zing of flavor. The cabbage and carrots were tasty along side the tender corned beef. Simply fabo!!"
"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."
"I love corned beef and have always added beer (Murphy's) to the cooking broth, but apple juice was a pleasant switch. And I love this glaze!Note to jeaniene123. Corned Beef was made in Cork, Ireland to be used on the sailing ships bringing immigrant s to America. It was a way to preserve the meat for the long voyage."
