Guinness Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe

Publisher Photo
Passed down through multiple generations in our family, this robust corned beef and cabbage recipe is requested often in our house. The Irish stout beer adds excellent richness to the corned beef. Just throw the ingredients together in the slow cooker and let them simmer until delicious!—Karin Brodbeck, Red Hook, New York

"Excellent flavor, so tender and juicy. I'll make it again and again. I did use beef broth and beer to cook it in, the meat was beautiful. My roast was 5 lbs and I cooked it for 8 hours, perfection."
