Corned Beef Update

Here's the corned beef just out of the brine. Not pink, I know, that's because I didn't use any 'pink salt' (sodium nitrite).

Onion, carrots, celery, corned beef, and the rest of the spices ready to cook in the crock pot. It looks yummy! And it smells wonderful!

Just finished cooking and ready to cut.
While I love cinnamon (and it was surprisingly tasty in the corned beef) it was a little too much cinnamon in this recipe.

The verdict: It was good. I'll probably make it again, but I'll use less cinnamon in the brine. 

Son1 liked it, too. He took the leftovers back up to school with him.
