many recipes may seem "ridiculous" until you try them! don't bash a recipe until you have made/tasted it!

what do you care what she does in HER kitchen? are you expecting an invitation from her? if you saw what went on in restaurant kitchens, you would never eat out again.

wow! this is the only way to go. i followed the recipe almost to the letter. only exception was i also, like many other reviewers, used a whole can of beer. my corned beef was a little over 3lbs. i cooked it in my 51/2 qt. crockpot. after 9 hours, it was perfect. i removed the corned beef, and covered it with foil. let it rest at least 20 minutes...

love this!!! so easy, and can be customized to your taste. even my beet hater friends eat this when i make it. beets get a bad rap, like brussell sprouts, etc. roasting anything only makes it better. just don't wear your favorite shirt while making this. while beet juice is yummy, it's unforgiving on your clothes. another winner from anne!""

so yummy and easy! i also did not include the celery. to me that belongs in a "real beef" dish. i.e. pot roast. we are not beer drinkers so only had a 12oz. can of regular beer. worked just fine. yes, the meat does shrink, and we love the leftovers even more. but remember, don't overcrowd your crockpot. so if you are going to get a huge one, use...

LOVE this!!! i just read the review where they added extract. great idea as the cream cheese, even when left out is a little hard. my partner is not a big sweet eater, but he can't get enough of this. perfect for brunch, pot luck, or just to have with your morning coffee/tea.""
