Cook's Notes
You need a BIG crockpot. Serve with mashed potatoes, of course.


3-4 lb. corned beef brisket or bottom round
1 (6 oz.) can frozen orange juice, thawed

Trim excess fat from corned beef. Cover with water and let stand 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly. Fit beef into slow cooking pot. Pour orange juice over meat. Cover tightly and cook on low for 10-12 hours or at high for 5-6 hours

I put it in on High until it gets bubbling then turn to low for about 6 hours. When it is done the way we like it I can slide a fork right through the meat and when I twist it the meat falls apart easy. I put cabbage in the last hour. I do not care for cabbage overcooked, some do I guess. Potatoes I can not say as I do not care for potatoes with corned meat of any kind. Hope this helps you.
