Reviews for Tender Corned Beef 'n' Cabbage
"Connie, get the flat, not the point, and you'll get nicer slices, although this is about two years too late.I like the apple juice flavor, and found that if I cook it on low for a couple of hours less, it slices better. If I cook the 8-10 hours, it falls apart, but it's still delicious."
"I love corned beef and cabbage....could someone tell me which piece of corned beef I should buy to get the nice pieces as shown with this recipe? Connie 3-15-15"
"I have never been a big fan of corned beef until I tried this recipe! This was the most tender and tasty corned beef I have ever had and I will be making it again BEFORE St. Patrick's Day!"
"Wonderful taste due to apple juice..husband was impressed!"
"I made this and took it to a St Patrick's day party. Other people brought their own corned beef n cabbage but everyone asked me how I made mine. It was great and very easy to make."
"I used the apple juice and also apple cider. Enough to cover the corned bveef. It turned out wonderful. It was so tender it just about fell apart."
"This recipe had good flavor but I would wait to add the cabbage next time until about an hour before serving. Cooking it all day in the slow cooker made it kind of mushy. I like mine cooked a little less. I also added peeled carrots and would add those later next time too."
"I missed St. Patrick's day so had to have this dish a little late, tried this recipe and was amazed how good it turned out for such an easy recipe. Thank you for this tasty recipe."
