    I'm going to try corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots baked in the oven later today. I usually do the traditional stove-top boiling method but baking is easier for me. I've read some recipes on the internet and it seems like it should work. Just have to add some water - about 2 cups or so - and that should do it.

    I pray you all have a great day with as low pain as possible!

    Dave let me know how that came out. Was it any different then cooking it on top of the stove? I make corned beef on top of the stove too and I've heard people making it in the crock pot now too. How was it? Hope it was a great day for you!

    Hi, Chris.

    The corned beef turned out great. Baked it at 350 degrees for two hours with about 3 cups of water in a foil-covered roasting pan, but it was not quite done. Put it back in the oven for another hour and everything was perfectly delicious. I'll never boil corned beef again. This was much easier for me.

    I'm glad your baked corned beef turned out well. I do mine in the crock pot, using one can of beer and an equal amount of water. (Not a big beer drinker, but it does make the meat really tender.) On low, start it 10 hours before you want to eat, and it literally falls apart. Not great if you plan to do sandwiches with leftovers, but if you're just making a meal of it, it's delicious!
