Slow Cooker Spicy Corned Beef

I’ve done that corned beef and cabbage thing. Loved it. I’ve done the corned beef sliders thing. Definitely loved it. Time for something new. Time for slow cooker spicy corned beef. Oh yes. Tender, sliced, and the best part, topping with a simple glaze that doesn’t remind you of the usual corned beef ‘thing’. You can tell that just by looking at the list of ingredients? Oranges and corned beef? Yes. Cloves, you bet! And lots and lots of other great things that end up packing the corned beef with crazy good flavor.
Slow Cooker Spicy Corned BeefI sliced this slow cooker spicy corned beef thinly and served it on rye bread with just a bit more of the glaze drizzled over the top. That’s it. That’s all it needed. No kraut, Swiss cheese, or anything else.

For the corned beef
