Crockpot Corned Beef Is Tender! 

Corned beef cabbage slow cooked takes one tough piece of meat and tenderizes it perfectly!

Don’t worry about biting into a tough piece of beef when using a slow cooker.  Crockpot beef is tender! 

You’ll also be happy to know that the vegetables soak up the flavors from the beef adding lots of depth to the meal.  Mmmm, delicious. 

Use the spices that come with the brisket.  The ready made seasoning packet simplifies this meal. 

No measuring spices necessary.  Open that packet and place in in the slow cooker! 

All the ingredients will cook for about 6 hours on high temperature.

Add the cabbage during the last hour of cooking. Cabbage softens up fairly quickly compared to the potatoes and carrots.

  1. After reading this post I decided to make my corned beef in the crock pot this year, It looks delicious and effortlessly!

  2. I love beef in the crock pot… it comes out so tender and succulent but need to try it with a corned beef! Thanks for the suggestion. . Im making a list of all the recipes Im going to make with it… becasue its finally Corned Beef season!

  3. This looks so good! And making it in the slow cooker is the best thing ever! Cannot wait to make this on St. Patrick’s Day!

    1. Hi Sue! It really is preference. Flat is lean and point is marbled with more fat. Both are delicious, but if you can’t decide get the whole brisket and enjoy both cuts!

  4. 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. 🙂

  5. What a great hearty meal. My husband is always cooking this so at least I now have a recipe I can follow to try for him. Thanks so much.

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. corned beef is huge in my family – this recipe looks so amazing. I will def. save this to make for brunch on sunday! thanks!
