This sous vide corned beef is incredibly tender and bursting with flavor. The sous vide does most of the work for you, making this recipe fool-proof and guaranteeing a perfectly cooked, juicy, and flaky corned beef every time. A great dinner to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
- Sous vide immersion circulator (what the heck is this?? check out the link for the one we use in our house)
- Large pot
- Plastic vacuum sealing bags and vacuum sealer OR use the water displacement method, see notes belwo
- Skillet, cast iron if available
- 3 pounds corned beef brisket with spice packet
- ½ cup stout beer OR an additional 1/2 cup of beef stock
- ½ cup beef stock
- 1 onion quartered
- 1 ½ pounds small potatoes
- 5 carrots cut into thirds
- ½ head of cabbage cut into wedges
- Set sous vide to 180° Fahrenheit.
- Rub spices on the fat side of corned beef.
- Transfer corned beef, stout beer, beef stock, and onion to a bag. Remove air using either a vacuum sealer or the displacement method.
- Drop bag in sous vide and cook for 10 hours.
- Remove corned beef from bath and bag, saving liquid and onions from the bag. Transfer corned beef to a skillet warmed over medium heat. Sear 1-2 minutes per side then set aside to rest.
- Transfer liquid and onions from bag to large pot with the potatoes and carrots. Bring pot to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cover with lid. Cook vegetables for about 30 minutes, or until soft.
- Add cabbage to the pot. Cover again and cook for 15 minutes.
- Remove vegetables from pot and serve alongside corned beef.
- Corned Beef Brisket: Strain any juices out of the corned beef package before using in the recipe.
- Stout Beer: If you don’t want to use beer in your recipe, use an additional 1/2 cup of beef stock instead.
- Water Displacement Method: If you don’t have a vacuum sealer, place ingredients in a Ziploc gallon-sized bag and seal halfway across. Slowly lower bag into water with the sous vide turned on, the air will be forced out of the bag so you can seal completely and proceed with cooking.
