When it comes right down to it, Alan is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Give him a nice chunk of beef a spud or two and he’s a happy man. So as soon as I saw corned beef in my grocery store I bought it and this corned beef and cabbage slow cooked while I nursed a cold. Yeah, not sure where the sniffles came from. Probably from this erratic weather were having in California. Flip-flops one day and boots the next, but I know some of you are buried in snow, so I’m going to hush and keep my whining to a faint whimper.

Corned beef can be a tough piece of meat, but the slow cooker takes care of that aspect perfectly! Nice and tender and cooked right with the carrots and potatoes soaking up the flavors of the liquid this all cooks in.

I used the spices that came with the brisket, which makes this so simple to put together, and during the last hour of cooking Alan popped in the cabbage, which softened up fully. We ate this for several meals, which was nice since I was limiting my time in the kitchen because leaving the couch would require me to unbundle from my blanket cocoon!

Even by eating this for several meals, we still have leftovers. You might too, so be sure to save them. I created this Corned Beef and Cabbage Chowder, a dish that I think will make you crave corned beef and cabbage more than once a year! Do you have a favorite Irish dish that you enjoy year after year?

    I have never made corned beef but your looks delicious it’s making me want to try! Slow cooker brisket can come out dry but yours looks nice and juicy, maybe it’s the seasoning? Looks awesome.

      Thanks, Erica! It cooks in lots of liquid, so it would be super hard to dry out in a slow cooker!

    Yup, exactly how I make corned beef! Thinking about leaving the potatoes out this year and making mashed red potatoes instead of boiled ones though. Now if corned beef would just go on sale! Man, it’s so expensive here right now! haha Your dish is making me crave it now!

    Beautiful roast and perfectly cooked. I have never made this before at home and now that I live on the other side of the pond this is not something you can find in the stores so guess can just look at your delicious photos! Sharing of course!

    Does this really cook for 6-7 hours on high? Most slow cooker recipes that I use do 3-4 on high or 6-8 on high. Just want to be sure dinner isn’t ready way too early. 🙂

      I meant 6-8 on low. LOL

        Hi Elisa! The time is correct, although your slow cooker’s temperature gauge may vary from mine. Enjoy!!
