Corned Beef and Cabbage Slow Cooker Style

Education & Training with Realty Mark Associates AB066878

It's time to pull out the crock pot and slow cook a delicious St. Patrick's Day Dinner of Corned Beef & Cabbage. I'm certain that a quintessential multitasker invented this method so we can come home to the welcoming arms of a hot cooked meal after working all day.

Prep: 20 minutes         Cook: 8 hours          Serves: 10


   3 1/2 cups Beef Broth or Beef Stock

   1/4 cup cider vinegar

   2 medium onions, cut into quarters      

   5 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters (about 5 cups)

   5 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces (about 2 1/2 cups)

   1 corned beef or beef brisket (about 3 pounds)

   1 head green cabbage, trimmed and cut into 6 wedges (about 2 pounds)

   Bouquet Garni  (a bunch of herbs tied together with string removed after cooking is done)


Stir the broth and vinegar into a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the onions, potatoes, carrots, beef and cabbage. Submerge the Bouquet Garni in the broth mixture.

Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours or until the beef is fork-tender. Remove the Bouquet Garni.

Recipe Tips:

For thicker sauce: Remove the beef and vegetables from the cooker. Stir 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl until smooth. Add to the cooker and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens.

School is never out for the Successful.

Richard - I had reservations about adding the cider vinegar for fear it would be overpowering. In the end, you couldn't detect it at all.  I think it helped cut the fatty taste of the corned beef. I'll definitely use the slow cooker on this one again.
