2 large shallots, peeled and halved

2 tablespoons pickling spice

2 teaspoons caraway seeds

2 (12-ounce) bottles beer (not light)

1/2 cup Irish whiskey

6 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces

6 red potatoes, cut into 2-inch dice

4 sprigs fresh dill

Kale leaves, for plating


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Put the corned beef into a large roasting pan (preferably with a lid). Add the garlic, shallots, pickling spice, caraway seeds, beer and whiskey. Cover and place in the oven. Braise 3 hours, turning the meat once. At the end of the 3 hours, add the carrots, potatoes and dill. Cover again and place back in the oven for an additional 2 hours. Remove from the oven.
