Serves10 people

Slow Cooker Time LOW8 hr

Cooking MethodOven, Slow Cooker


  • 1 (4-pound) corned beef with pickling spices
  • 12 ounces Guiness stout
  • 1 small onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce



  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for mustard, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce, with the corned beef package (liquids and spices included) into a slow cooker set on low, cover and cook 8 hours.

  2. Preheat oven to 400º F. Remove the corned beef to a cutting board and strain the liquids, discarding the solids. In a small saucepan bring the strained liquid to a slow boil with the brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.  Cook for 20 minutes.

  3. While liquids are cooking, trim fat from the corned beef and slice thinly. Arrange on an ovenproof platter or deep serving dish.  When liquids are slightly thickened, taste and adjust salt and pepper as necessary. Spoon about one cup of the liquids over the sliced meat and place the platter into the oven to glaze, about 15 minutes.

  4. Serve with boiled potatoes and pass the remaining sauce at the table, along with horseradish sauce.

This recipe sounds amazing! I can't wait to try it for St. Patrick's Day. I don't think I've had corned beef with Guinness cooked in it, so I have to give this a try.

Hmmmm...Is this the same corned beef that would be used for hash? I remember when I was growing up my grandmother made corned beef hash with eggs for breakfast and I've always wondered where the corned beef came from. I know they sell it in cans but I'd really love to make it from scratch.

Anyone who likes corned beef would definitely enjoy this recipe. It's the perfect dish to make for St. Patrick's Day, or whenever you're looking to make an easy and tasty meal.

The flavor of the corned beef was amazing, and it wasn't dried out. I would definitely recommend this recipe.

Slow cooking corned beef is the best way to do it. Adding the element of Guinness is pure genius, though! The flavor really comes through nicely, without being overpoweringly beer-y, and the beef is as juicy and tender as all getout. I will definitely be making this again!

I thought this was pretty tasty. Was not too dry, and you can taste the Guinness!

Yum. I loved this. I love that you can just leave it in the slow cooker and go. Absolutely delicious.
