Bored of that same-ole, same-ole crockpot corned beef recipe? Well, here ya go! You’re not going to be disappointed with this slow cooker Guinness corned beef. Oh yeah, it’s tender and moist. And, boy oh boy is it ever packed with great flavor. The stout beer adds a tremendous deep flavor to each and every bite. The mustard adds a nice little kick, almost unexpected. And onion. I’m a big fan of onion, and I never hesitate to add it to a dish, be in the slow cooker or a steak marinade. It adds a great flavor to the meat for sure.
Any time I made slow cooker Guinness corned beef it’s going to end up in one place and one place only: between two slices of nice marbled rye bread as a sandwich. I could probably get more creative with it by why would I? Usually that means a Reuben. I love a good Reuben sandwich. There’s no such thing as too many Reuben’s in my world. Sometimes, I go the Swiss-and-corned-beef route, with plenty of mustard. I like to put the sandwich under a broil, open-faced, for a few minutes to get the cheese nice and melted.
