If you think the only time to eat corned beef is in March during St. Patrick’s Day festivities, then you haven’t met my daughter. She could eat it all throughout the year and I’ll have to confess, the rest of us like it too. So I found a new way to make it with this Slow Simmered Hard Cider Corned Beef.

So when I recently purchased a corned beef brisket while on sale at my local grocery store, I decided to tweak my regular recipe for Mustard & Beef Corned Beef and decided to cook it in fresh apple cider (since it’s apple season), Angry Orchard Hard Cider Crisp Apple flavor and water to celebrate the Fall flavor.

I always slow simmer my corned beef in liquid for about 2 1/2 hours; then pop it in the oven to bake for about 30 minutes. It’s really easy to make and comes out moist every single time. You do have to be home for a few hours though so it’s one of those perfect, Sunday afternoon meals. The combination of apple cider and hard cider infused in this Hard Cider Corned Beef was amazing! A little sweet, but went perfectly with homemade applesauce and mashed potatoes. ~Enjoy!

  • 4 c . Water
Instructions
  1. Add the corned beef, apple cider, Angry Orchard and water to a large pot; making sure the corned beef is fully submerged. Bring to a boil; then reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Add more water if the liquid level goes below the corned beef.

Recipe Notes

You can use a larger piece of corned beef brisket with these liquid measurements; as long as the meat is submerged under the liquid during cooking. Serving size will change.

    This sounds delicious! Quick question though- when you put it in the oven, do you discard the cider? Thanks in advance!

      Great question and I just updated the post. I usually add a ladle full of the cider/broth to the bottom of the pan before putting it in the oven. Enjoy!
