Food Network Corned Beef and Cabbage
This recipe has 8 ingredients. It takes 15 minutes of prep and 9 hours on low in the crockpot and makes 4 servings. All the ingredients were easy to find at my local grocery store. As suggested by the reviews I chose to not use the celery. The celery seemed out of place in a corned beef recipe so I omitted it. For the ale/stout I used Guinness, it seemed the natural fit. I cooked the corned beef for 9 1/2 hours in the crockpot and the cabbage about 45 minutes. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
My oldest son loved this recipe and ate multiple servings. Other people on the Food Network site have complained about the vegetables lacking flavor, but I thought they tasted like a combination of the Guinness and the corned beef spices. I liked that the cabbage in this recipe was cooked, but not mushy like many corned beef and cabbage recipes are. The leftovers made for great reuben sandwiches the next day. Overall, a great and easy way to make corned beef and cabbage.
