"Final result is a bit sweet for my taste, like more spice to my corned beef. Cabbage came out wonderful, though."

"this is the worst recipe for corned beef I have ever seen and a huge waste of time Corned beef is already seasoned there is no reason to add anything, the only reason I looked at this was to decied when to add the cabbage. Save yourself some time and money and just add some water to cover cook on low for 12 hours then add cabbage the next morning and cook it until tender, if you like more spice you can add the spice packet, but be careful if you have a small brisket that packet will be way to much as all the spice packets are the same amount no matter how big or small it is."

"Ihave read the reviews and am trying this for St. Pats day. My slow cooker isn't big enough so I left out the potatoes, and I used beer instead of apple juice. Smells wonderful already, will update when I'm done."

"I agree with Birdie, the sweetness of the liquids did not suit the vegetables at all. I would make the recipe again but only to cook the corned beef and then slice it thin for sandwiches."

"The sweetness of this recipe did not suit the vegetables at all--leftover vegetables were discarded.  However, the leftover corned beef made delicious sandwiches.  Maybe next time I will just cook the meat and leave out the cabbage, onion and potatoes."
