Remove the corned beef from the packaging and wash off any pink slime. Dry the beef down with paper towels on all sides to remove excess moisture.

Peel and slice the carrots into 1 inch chunks. Peel the yellow onion and cut it in half, then rainbow cut 8 slices from each half. Cut the red potatoes in half then cut each half into three chunks.

Preheat the oven to 350 F and heat the dutch oven on medium high heat with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Once the Dutch oven is heated, add the corned beef and brown on all sides for 4 – 5 minutes each side. Set the corned beef aside and slowly add the beef broth. Use a wooden spoon to scrape up any fond or browned bits from the bottom of the Dutch oven.

Add the beer and Worcestershire to the Dutch oven. Place the corned beef into the center of the Dutch oven then surround it with carrots and onion. Next, place the potatoes around the wall of the Dutch oven trying not to cover the corned beef. Sprinkle some of the seasoning packet on the potatoes and corned beef, then place the lid on the Dutch oven and bake it in the oven for 1 hour.

Cut the cabbage into 4 quarters and remove the core stem. Remove the Dutch oven and add the cabbage on top of the potatoes. Sprinkle in more of the spice packet, then cover with the lid and put it in the oven for 1 more hour.

Next remove the Dutch oven and using tongs, flip the corned beef and the cabbage. Put the lid back on and cook for 30 minutes.

Next remove the Dutch oven and also remove the corned beef and set it on a cutting board to rest. Place the Dutch oven on a medium heat burner with the lid partially open for 15 minutes. This will reduce the liquid and make it more flavorful.

If you want to thicken up the liquid, push aside the veggies from the wall of the Dutch oven and add ΒΌ teaspoon of cornstarch. Then use an immersion blender for a half minute to create a thicker consistency.

After 5 minutes of resting, slice the corned beef against the grain. Place the sliced corned beef on top of the veggies in the Dutch oven and serve.
