I never had corned beef before-this was a great way to try it! I used the seasoning packet but also used the bay leaf, cloves, and pepper. It was a perfect blend of seasonings! I will make this again!
Good recipe, very adaptable. In the crock pot, you can also use 2 cups of wine -- or 1 can of beer (!) -- and then add water to cover. The alcohol cooks out, and flavors the meat, tenderizes it; you can then use the stock as a base for another dish or soup.
