    I have been cooking corned beef and cabbage for 50/years using the same method Mom used.....boiling out all the flavor except for what the cabbage brought. Yesterday, my life changed! My husband and I enjoyed the most delicious Saint Patrick's Day dinner we have ever had! Thank you.

    This is so easy and delicious. I will never boil corned beef and cabbage again, i always hated the smell using that process anyway. This came out soo tender. I did not have low sodium broth and it was not too salty. At the end, I thickened the juice to make it a little saucier. Delicious dinner.

    This was the best corned beef recipe! I used a 3 lb. Flat cut corned beef. Only used 3 cups beef broth and put my vegetables in 1 and 1/2 hour after starting. Covered. The dijon and brown sugar really add to the flavor. This will be my go to from now on!

  • Veges did not cook

    Veges were raw after an hour. Meat was tender. I was disappointed. Three hours in the oven was a long time. Would have gotten better results in a slow cooker.
