Every year I make hubs Corned Beef and Cabbage and every year I ask myself why I don’t make it more often, the corned beef always gets gobbled up so quickly, so I go out to the market and buy another corned beef.

This year, I decided to bake my Corned Beef and Cabbage, except lo and behold, we didn’t buy any cabbage…gasp…So I baked the Corned Beef with potatoes and carrots and hubs went to the market to get a head of cabbage.

After everything was nicely baked, I placed all the ingredients in a crock pot, but the cabbage wasn’t cooking quick enough for me, so I placed it all in the oven, oh my my! Hubs said this was THE BEST CORNED BEEF!! Wow after 20 years of making this meal, I will be changing to baked only. The Corned Beef didn’t come with a seasoned packet so I made my own seasoning. Perfection!

Yield: 4 pounds


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours 10 minutes


  • 1 package Corned Beef Brisket (3-4 Pounds)
  • 6 potatoes quartered
  • 3 carrots, cut into chunks
  • 1 green cabbage, cut up
  • 2 Tablespoons Peppercorn
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 cup hot water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Unwrap the brisket and place it fat side up inside the baking dish.
  3. If it came with a spice packet, sprinkle it over the top, then sprinkle on the black peppercorns and minced garlic and rub it in.
  4. Cover the dish with a lid or heavy aluminum foil and place it in the oven for 2 1/2 hours-3 1/2 hours..
  5. Check the brisket by inserting a fork in the meat.
  6. If it goes in easily, it’s ready; if it meets with resistance, bake for another 30 minutes---or up to an hour in some cases!
  7. If the brisket is tough, it hasn't cooked long enough!
  8. Once the brisket is fork-tender, remove it from the oven and let it rest, covered loosely in foil. Add cabbage and veggies during the last 1/2 hour-45 minutes plus water
  9. Slice Corned beef into good sized slices, serve veggies along side.

Interesting! all the comments are that it looks good, that they will try it and how they make it. Not one comment about how the Corned Beef was after they tried the recipe.

The checkout lady and I were just talking this morning about why we only buy corned beef once a year since it is so tasty and pretty easy to make. I typically boil mine for a few hours and then finish it off under the broiler with a mustard/brown sugar glaze. I love that little bit of crispiness added! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Encouraging Hearts and Home. Pinned.

I will have to try this way of making corned beef and cabbage. thank you for the recipe, Nettie. I will have it with soda bread.. I will have wine, rather than Guinness , leave that to my husband... (he enjoyed that I didn't care too much for Guinness when we did the Guinness Brewery Tour, as he was able to drink mine too..)
