Corned Beef


Beer Battered Fries


For the Tacos

  • In the bowl of a crockpot, combine all of the ingredients for the corned beef. Add in 1-2 cups of water, or more as needed to cover the brisket by at least 1 inch.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or until tender.
  • Shred the beef with two forks and lightly toss with the remaining sauce. Keep warm.
  • In a bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, lime juice and cilantro.
  • Spread a little of the yogurt into a warmed tortilla. Add the shredded beef, cheddar cheese and cabbage. Serve with fresh cilantro, limes and the beer battered fried (see recipe below.
  • EAT!!

For the Beer Battered Fries

  • Heat oil in a large pot to 325 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, garlic powder, cayenne, salt and pepper. Whisk in the beer until a batter forms. If needed, add more beer to thin the batter. The batter should be the consistency of heavy cream. Let the batter sit while you partially cook the fries.
  • Working in batches, place the potatoes into the oil, being careful not to crowd the pan. Cook until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or skimmer, remove the potatoes placing them onto a towel-lined plate and sprinkle with a few pinches of salt.
  • Next, raise the oil temperature to 350 degrees F. Dip the partially cooked fries, a few at a time, into the batter, allowing any excess batter to drip off back into the bowl. Carefully lower the coated potatoes 1 at a time into the oil. DO NOT overcrowd the pot; only fry about 8-10 fries at a time. Cook until deep golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and drain onto fresh paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.

    1. Hey Amanda,
      I would fill a large pot halfway with oil. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  1. These sound delicious! I’d like to make the corned beef a day before I plan to serve them since it takes so long in the crockpot. Any suggestion on how to reheat it the next day so it doesn’t dry out?

    1. HI! Just add the beef back to the crockpot and heat on low for 1-2 hours. That will work great! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

  2. Hi – I was wondering if you think if leftover corned beef could be frozen to use at a future time?? Thanks. Just love your blog!

    1. Sure, I think that should work fine. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! ?

  3. Made this for dinner last night. The entire meal was outstanding, and I have to say that the beer battered fries were dangerously delicious. Thanks for the great recipe. We will be making this one again!

  4. Now this is corned beef done right! I’m very Irish and will be swapping out my traditional corned beef and cabbage for this recipe on Thursday. Thanks Tieghan!

    1. Tieghan!!! I’m Irish Mexican and never thought of cooking Irish Mexican fusion! This tacos look amazing I will definitely be making them this week! 🙂 thanks!

  5. love the sound of beer battered fries!! there’s nothing sadder (okay lying but still) than soggy, limp fries, and this sounds like the perfect way to avoid that.

  6. Whoooooa these look amazing! Perfect dinner to prep while we’re stuck inside hiding from the rain all day. Thanks Tieghan!!

  7. Yum! I love the idea of classic Irish corned beef paired with chipotle and south of the border flavors!
