Why This Recipe?
This recipe is pretty economical to make as it just requires a few ingredients.
I do highly recommend that when you cook this in your slow cooker, that you cook it on low, rather than high, for a perfect, succulent roast.
It's a great St. Patrick's Day dinner idea!
It is so easy to make and is bound to become a new family favorite.
Just a few simple Ingredients are needed for this recipe:
Corned Beef – of course, this is the main ingredient. Corned beef is relatively inexpensive and is made from brisket. Most corned beef comes with a seasoning packet. Be wary of this because corned beef already has extra salt in it and I prefer to only use ¾ of the seasoning packet.
Cabbage – I prefer using green cabbage, (also known as Cannonball cabbage), for this recipe.
Beef Stock – I have found that using beef stock in this recipe makes for a delightful, rich beef flavor.
What to serve with corned beef and cabbage

How to make Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
This recipe is best made on the slowest setting for delicious corned beef. The corned beef is slow-cooked in broth for a few hours and vegetables are added later. The cabbage takes the least amount of time to cook, so it is added last. Note that this is meant to be made with a seasoning packet that comes with the corned beef, but if you don't have one, just mix 1 teaspoon each of peppercorns, mustard seeds and ½ teaspoon of cloves together.
Don't Forget to bookmark this recipe.
- Pre chop the onions, carrots, and cabbage ahead of time and keep in refrigerated until ready to use.
- Use a crockpot liner for easy cleanup. I always use these to save time.
- Use small potatoes to save time peeling and cutting.
- Store any leftovers in the refrigerator and serve on sandwiches the next day.
