Slow cooked corned beef with guinness beer is one of the most flavorful ways to cook this meat fork tender! I just love making it in the crockpot! It so tender you can cut it with a fork!
I love it so much, I really wonder why I wait once a year to have this fine tasty cornedbeef! I really love it like this. I should make it more often. As many ways as I have tried to cook this cut of meat, I always go back to cooking it in the crockpot / slow cooker.
Either way you cook this it must be slow cooked and on low heat, if you want it fork tender. In my experiences the best results will come from making sure the meat is slow cooked.
This was fork tender, melt in your mouth corned beef is just delicious. It has a hint of sweetness and a whole lot of flavor! I also recommend cooking the vegetables separately and add them at the end. Just boil them add olive oil, granulated garlic to taste, salt, pepper and some butter around 2 tablespoons toss while hot! I used cabbage, carrots and tiny white potatoes. If you are baking it in the oven then everything can go in the oven together.
In the slow cooker, sometimes the vegetables don't come out as tender as I like, that's why I boil them separately or bake them in a large baking sheet with just butter, salt and pepper. Slow cooker or on top of stove, everything usually goes in the pot. You can decide how you want to cook yours. I love cabbage, carrots and potatoes with just butter and not all the grease that comes off the meat even though that's tasty!
Just to be clear, Cornedbeef with cabbage potatoes and carrots can all go in the crockpot/ slow cooker, or on top of stove in a dutch oven, baked or pressure cooked, with the seasoning packet and any other spices you prefer, that is the original authentic recipe, all in one pot.
I just make mine without adding the vegetables. I have even made the vegetables the day before, go to work and come home to the corned beef all done in the slow cooker ready to serve!
