Guinness-Braised Beef Brisket

I think I'm just a eat a corned beef in public kind of person. It just tastes better out. Plus for me it is a one and done kind of dish. Don't really want left overs.

That said, it was still nice to have.  We went out last Saturday, and this cooked while we were out.  It was ok.  The broth was overly sweet, but that's probably why they said to discard it.  The meat was tender, and it didn't take on the broth taste.

If I had all the ingredients, I would have again. We had with Mashed Potatoes.
