Orange-Spiced Corned Beef with Dried Fruit

  • Servings: 6

Mixed dried fruit, orange juice, molasses, and spices dress up plain-Jane corned beef with lively new flavor in this main-dish recipe. When holidays or special dinners require more oven space than you have, make this recipe in your slow cooker. The slow cooker liner saves on cleanup. Remove leftovers from slow cooker liner; refrigerate or freeze in a separate container as soon as your meal is finished. (Cooked foods should not stand at room temperature longer than 1 hour.)

  • 1/2 cup water

Fit liner snugly against the bottom and sides; pull top of liner over rim of bowl. If a seasoning packet is present, discard it. Place meat in the cooker.

Step 3

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.

Step 4

Remove meat from cooker. Thinly slice meat across the grain. Arrange meat slices on a serving platter. Spoon fruit mixture over meat. Cool slow cooker completely; remove liner and discard.
