Reviews for Corned Beef Dinner
"Good and I cooked it for 10 hours. will make again."
"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."
"Where are the spices, the packet that comes with it is not enough. This will be very bland as is. Crock pot is a good idea for most but not for corned beef."
"Perfect...very happy with it!"
"I found the cabbage to mushy. Either my Crock Pot was to crowded or my C beef may of had to much marbling, but it shredded on me. I prefer slicing it."
"Cooking for 8 to 10 hours is way to long. I love corn beef and cabbage but this was terrible. Cabbage was like eating mush Next time I will do it the right way and cook on top of the stove. Sorry usually the recipes on here are quite good but not this one"
"This was delicious and I will definitely make this again. Might become a St. Paddy's Day tradition for our family. So easy, too! I made it exactly according to the recipe."
"I have made this recipe since I frst saw it in TOH. Over the years our family has grown. I am now up to doing 3 3-4# briskets and adjust the vegetables and seasonings accordingly. This year, I decided to do I in my roaster oven. I set the heat setting to 250 degrees and it was done in about 4 1/2 hours. When I went to grab my apple juice from the pantry, I was out. I substituted a bottle of Summer Shandy beer. The family declared it the best ever. I do steam my cabbage separately due to personal preference. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It truly is wonderful."
"i use pickling spice in the water about 3 tbsp. I used to put the cabbage, potatoes and carrots in with the CB, I make colecannon my family love it. I bake the carrots in the oven with butter and brown sugar. We also always have marble rye.. Just finished eating and the family is smiling..."
"I always do CB&C for st. Paddy's Day. The only thing different I do is add 9 peppercorns, 9 whole cloves, and 1 good sized bay leaf. If they are small add 2. Mmmmm good."
"Have fixed this recipe for several years minus the caraway seeds but will add them tonight when I put everything in the crockpot. Puts a little spin on the dish! Thanks!"
"I like the idea of more caraway seed, also. I will add when I make tomorrow. I also, miss the nutritional info and wish all of the recipes would have it included. Thanks for the great recipes!!!"
"Sounds so good. Do you think it would be possible to make half the amount? What would have to be changed and would the time in the crock pot stay the same?"
"I have noticed that the nutritional values are no longer listed for the recipes, are they no longer going to be available? It was helpful for people who are on restricted diets."
"I also make my CB&C like this and we love it...so easy. I go one step further and remove the meat from the cooker and then rebake it in the oven just till it's browned a bit. I'm normally making soda bread to go with so add it to the oven with it for no more than 1/2 hour. We just like the way the meat "sets up" better."
"This is one of those 'Drop Dead Good Eats.'"
"My boss made it for our St Pat's Day lunch and it was very good. I would make it for my family."
"This recipe is fantastic! I couldn't believe something so simple would turn out this well. I used sweet potatoes just because I like them better and added lots of pickling spice. This is a keeper recipe for sure!"
".the best Corned beef ever. My husband raved."
"So simple to assemble! It's hard to believe something so easy could taste soooo good!"
"I always fix corned beef & cabbage on St. Patrick's Day. Only thing I never did was add caraway. I'll do that. Delish!!"
"easy and very tasty."
