Title: Corn beef
Post by: McCoy on March 18, 2011, 19:39:25 PM
I made corn beef in a crock pot

1 3~4lb corn beef brisket
12~ red potato
1 12oz can of beer I used PBR
1 big bag of carrots
1 cup of water

I put these all in a the pot add the spice mix that came with the beef and put on low for 11 hours.  Last 1/2 hour I add a quartered cabbage and turn on high.

What are your thoughts on substituting a deer roast for the beef? This maybe a stupid question, but where exactly does the corn come in?

I think the proper term is "corned" beef.
I offer the following:(thanks wiki).

Corned beef (US) or Salt beef (UK) are types of salt-cured beef product present in many beef eating cultures. The English term is used interchangeably in modernity to refer to three distinct types of cured beef:

    Wet-cured in spiced brine: more supple and tender due to its brining, and in modern times is usually made from brisket or round steak

    Dry-cured with granular salt: much drier and firmer in texture even after rehydration and can be made from various cuts of beef

    Canned minced salted meat: ground salted beef that is crumbly and oily and made from various portions of beef

So, Ryan a deer roast should work with some allspice, cloves, etc. And of course maybe an Irish brew to set the mood.  ;D

That sounds excellent. I'll be staying away from the canned version, though. Doesn't sound too appetizing. I need to make some of this corned beef for reubens. Had one last night and waited almost an hour for it. Nothing like a good reuben with real corned beef (or venison) on it.
