Braised Corned Beef in Stout

Tonight I made a braised corned beef in honor of St. Patrick's Day (although a day late.)  It is called Stout Braised Corned Beef.  Here is the recipe:

1 3lb corned beef brisket
3 bottles of stout (your choice, I used Oatmeal Stout)
1 spice packet
3 tablespoons sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place corned beef, spice packet and the beer in a dutch oven.  Cook for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.  When done, remove from oven and place corned beef on a plate.  Cover it with tin foil.  Take the dutch oven and place it on the stove .  Add the sugar to the beer and heat until syrupy.  Add a lump of butter.  Slice corned beef and drizzle sauce over it.  Drink with your favorite beverage!


  1. Intrigued to know how it turned out :) Did the beef have any lingering taste of stout?

  2. The beef not so much, the sauce did. My dh loved it so much he used it on his baked potato! Thanks for visiting.
