    Wonderful recipe! I agree with the lady doing the video, that I too am not a big fan of Corned Beef, but this recipe knocks all other corned beefs out of the park. My daughter said, this is the first time that she could actually taste the unique spices that were roasted to the top of the meat, giving it a great crust and flavor profile. Normally everything is just boiled away into oblivion. I followed her recipe, but only on the meat portion. I did add some carrots and onions with the meat, but only to add flavor during the cooking process. Those carrots with the meat, we did not eat. Here is where I took a different path. She suggest cooking the meat 6 hours, and that is what I did, but at the 5 hour point, I removed the meat from the oven. I also removed the carrots that were cooking with the meat. I then added potatoes and carrots, and returned to the oven for another hour. After that, I removed again from the oven and added 1" slices of a head of cabbage, and put into the dutch-oven. I returned to the oven for the final 30 minutes, to steam the cabbage to a perfect non-mushy texture. Also all my carrots and potatoes had perfect texture with out being mushy.

    Meso, Let me start by first saying, God Bless to ya"ll southern cooks! Honey, I cant tell you how glad I was to stumble on your video while searching for a really good recipe for a tender fall apart Corned beef. In the past I have tried a few different recipe's either boiled or crock pot and it always turn out tough and dry. So I narrowed my search to 3 video's I liked the best and pick 1 to try. Yours took 1st place. Girl, ya'll had my mouth watering before the video ended. I made it the exact way that you did, step by step along with the fried potatoes and cabbage. And honey....all I can say is Oooooooooo, Weeeeeeee! Damn girl! My mouth was singing like the clouds had opened up and the angel's were singing "Oh Happy Day"!. it melted in my mouth like warm butter on top of a warm buttermilk biscuit. So AMEN! to ya'll Meso. Oh, and while she was cooking in the oven, my house smelled so mmmmm,mmmm, good I wanted to tell the neighbors to c'mon in and smell this dish. lol. Thanks so much for this Sothern Soul Corned Beef recipe. It is in my life, oh ya!

    • Rian Ploof

      Oh sweet Joy, I am sorry that boiled stuff is for the birds in my opinion. Browning the meat, carrots, onions, cabbage a few potatoes? No heart attack there. 1/2 cup of brown sugar? Diabetic coma? hahahaha girl stop boiling that meat and give the flavor of the brown a chance to get down. Don't knock it til you've tried it. It is seriously GOOD! Thanks for watching and Many blessings Joy.

    Omg I’m trying this recipe as we speak. My husband is Black Irish and he likes to put everything in a Crock pot. Which is fine but I prepped two corned beef into separate crockpots, came across your video. Took 1 out and redid it to your recipe. Omg my house smells sooooo good at 6:30 in the morning. Lol i can’t wait till he comes home from work so we can taste test both versions. I’m sooo excited. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    There's nothing southern about this. Maybe you should call it Meso Style. Boiled dinner's are traditionally a one pot cooking technique, and for St Patrick's day especially. The original purpose of which, was to use a small amount of meat to flavor a large amount of vegetables, reflecting the economic hardship of the Irish in America. Steaming the cabbage in some fond doesn't cut the mustard.

    Caramelized happens when you add water and oil tho

    • Recovering Soul
      Recovering Soul 2 months ago

      I thought carmelizing required sugar, she didn't add sugar until after she seared it in the pan. Then she put raw juices on top of the seared beef. And the carrots looked old. Not enough potatoes. But interesting twist. Although I do like it the regular way.

    I like to cook mine with the dutch oven too. Your recipe is a nice change from boiling the meat. I love how you savor the taste! Was it salty at all? Very creative recipe - I'm gonna try this thank you! My GF hates any meat that is red inside. I have to burn her steak and we can't have prime rib because she won't eat the pink inner roast. I had to convince her to eat the corned beef and she liked mine. She's from the south so maybe she'll like this recipe!
