Corned Beef Cabbage Slow Cooked
Give Alan a nice chunk of beef a spud or two and he’s a happy man. Are you a meat and potato lover too?
Well, then this recipe is for you!
Once you see corned beef in the grocery store, grab it and let the magic of the crockpot do its thing.
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.
Leftover Corned Beef
There is usually enough corned beef to be enjoyed for several meals. The leftovers can be used to make complete new dishes like these:
- Classic Reuben Sandwich – Deli sandwich made by stuffing toasted rye bread with corned beef, sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing.
- Cheesy Reuben Appetizer – Easy to make appetizer.
- Leftover Corned Beef Hash – Quick and easy meal for breakfast or brunch.
- Corned Beef and Cabbage Chowder -A dish that I think will make you crave corned beef and cabbage more than once a year!
- How about dipping a warm slice of Guinness Beer Bread in the chowder?
Do you have a favorite Irish dish that you enjoy year after year? Looking for a sweet treat? How about making homemade Irish Cream? YUM

This is such a great holiday meal. My family loves it!
I have been looking for a good corned beef and cabbage recipe and this is IT! Cannot wait to try it. Love the ideas (can you say chowdah) for leftovers!
After reading this post I decided to make my corned beef in the crock pot this year, It looks delicious and effortlessly!
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!
I made a double batch this weekend just so I could have it for hash on Sunday morning! Big hit!
This is one of my favorite holiday meals. So simple but so delicious! I am really loving this slow cooker version!
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!
Heading to the store tomorrow to pick up corned beef, this looks delicious!
We made this again, tonight. SO GOOD!!
I need to try this! I haven’t made corned beef before!!!!
I’m way too excited for this corned beef and cabbage meal! It looks perfectly cooked and perfectly yummmmmmy!
Which kind of corned beef is the best? Flat or point?
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!
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!!
Thank you. 🙂
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.
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!
Thank you! So true, I don’t imagine this would be popular in Hong Kong!! 🙂
I love corned beef and cabbage. My favourite way to celebrate St Patricks day.
A traditional Irish recipe is always a hit!
Such a classic meal and yours look super.
Thanks, Peter! I love how easy this is to make slow cooked!
That corned beef and cabbage looks amazing! You are an amazing chef.
You are so sweet, Rini! Seriously love my sous chef, Mr. Crock Pot 😉
Thanks for the well wishes, Joy! I’m finally getting rid of that pesky cold!
last year was the first time I tried corned beef in the slow cooker and now it’s the ONLY way I will prepare it! This sounds wonderful!
I’m with you!! This is the way to cook up corned beef!
I’ve never made corned beef. I may have to try this one.
This would be great to make for the first time. It’s practically fool-proof!
Great idea to make it in a slow cooker.
It cooks up so well, Michele! I was so happy about that 🙂
We love to make this! It always turns out great!
I love the way it cooked up in the slow cooker. I don’t think I’ll make it any other way again!
This is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day since it is on a weekday this year! 🙂 You can let your slow cooker do the work all day and come home to a perfectly Irish meal. Love this!
Good point! No stress and all the fun for St. Patrick’s Day!
I’m relatively new to corned beef, I’m excited to make it for the first time this year!
I’ll be anxious to hear how yours comes out!
Love making a big corned beef for all the leftovers. Now I want one right now.
We used every bit of the leftovers!
nothing wrong with meat and potatoes!!! And thank you for reminding me that I haven’t made corned beef in a zillion years….maybe I should try yours, hmmm….???
Ohh, it’s time to get your Irish meal fix for sure!
OMG, this makes me so excited to make my favorite Irish feast. YUM
The date is sneaking up on us! Just around the corner 🙂
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!
The mashed potatoes sounds gooood! It’s gotta go on sale – maybe after St. Patrick’s Day?
I love that you made this in the slow cooker! Sounds fabulous!!
It came out so tasty and it was super easy too, which is always a good thing with me 🙂
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!
I’ve never made corned beef. I need to try this!
I’ve been making it only for a couple of years. Slow cooked is the way to make it for sure!
corned beef is huge in my family – this recipe looks so amazing. I will def. save this to make for brunch on sunday! thanks!
Yay! What a great brunch idea!
