Yield: Serves 8 to 10

  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole allspice
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups beer
  • 4 cups beef broth



Rinse the brisket under cold running water, rubbing to get all of the salt off of the surface.

Put half of the sliced onions in a large Dutch oven. Place the corned beef on top of the onions and put the remaining onion slices over the brisket. Sprinkle with the peppercorns and allspice. Add bay leaves to the pot.

Heat the oven to 275° F
