Guinness Corned Beef

4 pounds corned beef brisket
1 cup brown sugar (I use 1/2 cup)
1 can or bottle Irish stout beer (Guinness recommended, of course)
Pickling spices to taste (1 tbsp suggested)
1 Tbsp salt (I usually omit this)
Black pepper to taste
1 or 2 onions, sliced into rings

Rinse corned beef brisket in cold water and pat dry. Place the brisket fat-side up in a crock, Dutch oven or roaster.

With a fork, mix the brown sugar thoroughly in a bowl with the salt and spices (if using). If the corned beef brisket comes with a spice packet, feel free to add that to the mixture as well. Thoroughly coat the brisket all around with half of the brown sugar rub, then turn the brisket over and coat the other side. Lay the onion slices on top of the brisket, then, carefully pour in the beer around the edges.

Cook in crock pot (low) or oven (275 degrees) for several hours until brisket is done and tender; it will take some time for connective tissues (fat and collagen) to melt away. Brisket is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 180-185 degrees, or when a knife slides into it easily. Let brisket rest for 10 minutes before carving across the grain and serving with http://foodsoftheworld.activeboards.net/boiled-vegetables-irish-style_topic334.html - boiled cabbage and vegetables and http://foodsoftheworld.activeboards.net/irish-soda-bread_topic333.html - Irish soda bread

The little lady is making the same thing.  We changed plans after seeing this.  It went in the oven about 10 minutes ago.  She's from Cork and yes, she's a real redheaded Irish lass...temper and all. HAHA.
 
Happy St. Pat's!

Oh, man that was GOOOD!!!  Got too busy eating it to take pics of it.
 
We're having corned beef hash for supper tonight with a side of left over boiled cabbage and veggies.
 
It took a while to cook, but was well worth it.

hey, hillbilly - glad that you liked it! we were also fond of it ourselves. i would definitely do this recipe again - the only thing i might do is add just a bit more salt to balance the brown sugar. possibly a little more of the pickling spices as well, BUT it was just fine as prepared.

Tas, this sounds fantastic. I don't know if I can handle anymore food sites. Between the smoking sites and this one, all I'll be doing is cooking LOL.

We've been making this for years, and have always enjoyed it. It was on the menu again yesterday, and I forgot that I usually cut the brown sugar in half.

It was still very good, but I would recommend using 1/2 cup of brown sugar, rather than a full cup.
