Corned Beef and Cabbage (Slow Cooker)

Sandy Williams


I love this time of year. I know it's time for corned beef and cabbage! Yummo... and a good way is to put it all on in the morning and it's ready for that St. Paddy's day dinner or party. Man, oh man, I love my Crock Pot. lol

Corned beef and cabbage isn't just for St. Patrick's Day. This slow cooker recipe is so easy you'll make it year-round. The dish has all the classic flavors you expect but the hardest part is peeling the potatoes. Fresh onion in the bottom permeates and gives a wonderful flavor to the meat. The corned beef is tender and melts in your mouth. Since the cabbage is on top and not completely submerged it doesn't get soggy. This recipe is warm, comforting, and the easiest way to prepare corned beef and cabbage.

Note: Make sure to cut the potatoes into big chunks since they cook so long. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
