If you want to learn a little bit more about the aforementioned beers as an alternative to green food coloring in Bud Light, here's a primer for you.


Beer-Braised Corned Beef

2.5-pound corned beef brisket + accompanying spice packet
1 bottle beer (darker is better as it imparts more flavor)
4 red potatoes, quartered
1-2 carrot sticks, cut into chunks
Salt and pepper to taste

Place the corned beef in a large Dutch oven and sprinkle it with the spice packet accompanying it. Drizzle the beer over the beef and then add the potatoes and carrots. Season with salt and pepper.  Bring the liquid to a boil and then simmer it for 50 minutes per pound of beef. My 2.61-pound brisket took approximately 2.5 hours. Serve immediately.
