  1. sliced onions below, dried sliced garlic above, rubbed with sea salt and black pepper, braised for a long time in some wine/beer/juice does it for me.

    1. I prefer flat cut. It's also really good with an apricot glaze, just depends what mood you're in at the time

      1. I cover the corned beef in a water & beer mixture that also has a halved onion, and carrots, and simmer covered for 3-4 hours. I steam my red potatoes, and cabbage seperately.

        Before I place the beef in the water , I use the spice packet that comes with the corned beef, and rub it on the fat side, I also rub the fat side of the corned beef with McCormick Pickling Spice.

        Not just a once a year meal in my south side Irish house.

        1. I simmer the corned beef in a crock pot with the spice packets along with extra bay leaf, coriander, mustard seeds, a few cloves and plenty of whole garlic cloves. Then simmer the cabbage and carrots in the broth. To me, the just cooked through cabbage simmered in concentrated beef broth with spices is the best part. It gives the cabbage a sweet taste and spicy aroma.

          1. you could also add some apricots or prunes if you want to give it a bit of a sweet taste. it might balance the other tastes, good luck tutica 123
