What You'll Need

  • 1 corned beef brisket, about 4 pounds
  • 1 large onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole allspice

  3. Heat the oven to 275 F.
  4. In a saucepan, bring the beer and beef broth to a boil. 
  1. Pour the beer and beef broth mixture over the brisket.
  2. Cover and put the brisket in the oven. Cook for 4 to 5 hours. Serves 8 to 10.
