OMG this was DELICIOUS!!! The only thing I did differently was to dump everything in the slow cooker right off the bat and leave it overnight. I also used a raw store bought corned beef brisket.

I've been making Corn beef and cabbage for quite some time now and this recipe is a great twist. It is a very good change from the normal boiled dinner that Corn beef is. Thanks

Excellent. Used the leftovers for sandwiches the next day.

This was the best brisket I've ever eaten.
