Corned Beef with Potatoes and Carrots

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and what a perfect time to try your hand at cooking corned beef with potatoes and carrots! Though this dish is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day favorite, it is actually a wonderful dinner any time of the year.

I cook my corned beef with potatoes and carrots low and slow in my Le Creuset braiser, but you can do it in a covered casserole dish or even in a Crock-pot. No matter what kind of baking dish you use, remember to cook low and slow to make it tender. Corned beef is not a cut of meat you want to cook too quickly.

My favorite corned beef is the one pictured above from Cook’s. It comes with a pickling spice seasoning packet, and it’s the one I use for this recipe. I rinse my brisket in cold water before cooking.

Spray your pan with cooking spray, and place the rinsed brisket in it, fat side on top. Sprinkle the top with the seasoning packet, pour in 1-2 cups cold water (can use beer for a fuller flavor), add the minced garlic to the water, place onions around brisket, and place 2 rosemary sprigs on top. **Do not add potatoes and carrots at this point.

Cook on 275 degrees for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Pull out of oven to add potatoes and carrots. Place remaining sprigs of rosemary on top. Return to oven for another hour.

Plate and serve! This recipe for Corned Beef will melt in your mouth. It is incredibly tender and flavorful.

  1. How big is the corn beef in this recipe?

  2. Anonymous says

    3.34 lbs

  3. I’m not really sure but any roast beef when you either boil it or bake it you bake it at 375 for about two hours per pound the last half hour you would add your carrots and potatoes that’s how you cook or corn beef that includes boiling them

  4. You cook it at a low heat and slowly to tenderize it. A brisket cut is going to be tough if you cook it to quickly!
    I always use the stovetop method but this year I will be using this recipe.

  5. It’s not specified in the recipe, but I assume this is cooked covered. Correct?

    • It says to use a covered dish to bake it in, so yes! You could use heavy duty oven foil to cover the top & it works great. Sometimes 15-30 minutes or less to finished baking time I will remove lid (or foil covering) turn oven up to broil just to crisp/brown the top a little before temping it to make sure it’s a good 190°.

  6. Question.. I read post to quick.. it said fat side up.. I accidently put it down… will it matter
