Corned Beef & Cabbage Recipe
Classic and Easy Slow Cooker Corned beef and Cabbage, you'll want to make this more than once a year.
Slow Cooker- 6 quart or larger
Corned beef brisket (flat or point cut)
(with seasoning packet that is included)
white onion, sliced
(this is optional but good!)
red or gold potatoes
(or a mixture of both!) Peel them if you'd like!
cut into thin wedges
(or see notes below for other liquid ideas)
parsley for garnish
melted butter for potatoes if desired
horseradish or stone-ground mustard
Add the sliced onion to the slow cooker.
Add the corned beef to your slow cooker. Sprinkle over the included seasoning packet.
Add your baby potatoes on top of the roast. If your potatoes are larger you can halve them to ensure they get tender. Add the carrots and garlic.
Pour over the water. Add cabbage now if you want ultra-tender cabbage. Otherwise wait to add it until the last 2 hours.
Place the lid on the slow cooker.
Cook on HIGH for 5 hours or LOW for 8 hours total. (Add the cabbage during the last 2 hours). You may have to rearrange things into the pot to get the cabbage to fit (or cut your cabbage thinner).
Remove the meat onto a cutting board and slice into strips.
Serve the meat with potatoes, carrots, and cabbage.
Drizzle melted butter over the potatoes if desired. Serve with horseradish mustard or stone ground mustard.
What cut of corned beef should I use?
- easier to slice evenly (pictured below)
- can have more marbling but usually not uniform in size.
Both are great in this recipe. I usually choose whichever is cheaper.
Can I use a different liquid than water?
Water is most commonly used in making corned beef but one of these other liquids can be used:
Beer - such as Guinness
Beef or chicken broth
Add the brine - If you want more salty flavor, add the brine from the packaging.
How can I make this meal low carb?
Corned beef is low carb! Be conscious of what else you add to the pot.
Use water for the liquid (don't use beer or other high carb liquid)
Omit the potatoes and use celery or cauliflower instead.
Can I add brown sugar to this recipe?
Brown sugar is great in corned beef, it adds depth of flavor and cuts back on the salty flavor. Sprinkle two tablespoons over your corned beef before cooking.
