Oven Roasted Corned Beef


With Saint Patrick’s Day coming up soon it is time to buy and cook Corned Beef briskets. This is our favorite time of year! Hope you enjoy!

Oven Roasted Corned Beef

We love Corned Beef.  For us it is not just for Saint Patrick’s Day.  I usually buy 2 or 3 during March when they are on sale and freeze them to use later in the year.

Saturday night I pulled one out to roast.  I wanted to try making Reuben Egg Rolls and I found an interesting recipe for Corned Beef Tacos.  I usually cook my Corned Beef in the slow cooker but it was 7 pm and I didn’t want to be up all night waiting for the meat to cook.  So, I gave oven roasting a try.

Verdict:

I may never go back to using my slow cooker again for cooking the corned beef.  It is simple to use the slow cooker and it tastes great.  But it tends to fall apart and you don’t get those really nice slice that I love.

The meat was tender, sliced beautifully and tasted great.

  1. Wow, I’ve never baked a corned beef too, I’ve always used my crock pot. This would be a great method for when you want sandwiches with nice thick slices. Thanks for the tip!

    Looooooove! My mom always made corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s day. Now I’m the only one that likes it in my family so I never make it. 😦

      My kids thankfully like Corned Beef. My daughter actually asked me to buy extra to make the Corned Beef and Guiness Slaw Tacos.

    I’ve actually never had corned beef but a friend was talking some amazing sale on it at a local grocery store so I decided this is the year I give it a shot.

      I never tried it until one St. Patrick’s Day that was all the we’re serving at a local joint and I was starving. Best thing I ever ate! We love Corned Beef Hash, sandwiches and Egg Rolls.
