  • Crock Pot or Slow Cooker


  • 3 pounds raw corned beef brisket with spice packet
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 5 cloves garlic peeled and halved lengthwise
  • 2 cups Guinness beer
  • 1 pound baby potatoes
  • 6 large carrots
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  • Place corned beef, fat side up, into the slow cooker and season it with the spice packet.
  • Sprinkle with sugar; add garlic and pour beer around it.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours.
  • Remove lid and add carrots and potatoes; cover and continue to cook for 2 to 3 more hours, or until tender. Corned beef is cooked through when internal temperature registers at 145˚F. Use an instant read thermometer for accurate results.
  • Take the corned beef out of the slow cooker and transfer to a cutting board; let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
  • Thinly slice the corned beef against the grain.
  • Serve with carrots and potatoes and garnish with parsley.
  • If corned beef is not browned on top, or if you like a bit more browning, put the corned beef under a broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned to your liking.
