    I made this 3/17/08. I believe I have found the recipe for me! I added cabbage during the last 1 1/2 hours. This turned out awesome. This was by far the best corned beef I have ever made. My husband really liked it and made sure he got the leftovers!  -  20 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I did this recipe in the slow cooker instead and did not add the salt. It turned out fantastic! My family love it!  -  27 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good, alot easier than boiling, however the secret to the salt issue. When cooking corned beef ALWAYS wash in cold water before cooking. This gets a lot of the salt out.  -  14 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
