Corned Beef Dinner Recipe

Publisher Photo
This flavorful meal is a must for St. Patrick's Day, but great anytime of the year. While it usually cooks on the stovetop, a slow cooker makes it even easier. The recipe serves four nicely with enough leftover meat for Reuben sandwiches or other dishes. —Michelle Rhodes, Fort Bliss, Texas

"I had such high hopes for this recipe, especially considering all the good reviews. I don't know what happened but my meal did not turn out well. I followed the directions but the meat was as tough as shoe leather and the potatoes were not done. I plan on baking the meat and potatoes in the oven on low heat for a while to see if that will improve the tenderness. The next time I have a craving for a corned beef dinner, I will go out."

"This was good and easy to make, but I thought it was too salty."

"I followed the recipe exactly, except I had a 2 1/2 lb. corned beef and used a 4.5 quart Crockpot. After six hours, everything was cooked perfectly, but it all tasted like corned beef (too salty). Next year, I might do the corned beef this way, but cook the vegetables separately, which is unfortunately more work, but it may be worth it."

"I made this for st patty's day and everyone loved this recipe. It was so easy! I did cook it on low for 10 hours. It goes perfect with homemade rye bread."
