I know that I haven’t had an entry for Slow Cooker Thursday for a while….sorry guys! Life has been crazy around here! But I really do want to get back into my regular blogging routines again. If you are looking for more great crockpot recipes, go and visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM for her weekly Slow Cooker Thursday feature! The ladies that post there each week have some great recipes!


My recipe for this week is super duper simple, and it is something that I make EVERY year on St. Patrick’s Day.


Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage


You will need:

a crockpot large enough to hold your corned beef brisket




the corned beef brisket (with seasoning packet)

yellow mustard

apple cider vinegar

brown sugar


Scrub your potatoes and carrots and cut into 1-2″ chunks (whatever works best for your family) and set aside.


In a small bowl mix together 2 teaspoons yellow mustard, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, and 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar. Add contents of seasoning packet from corned beef (or if you don’t have the seasoning packet, use 1 1/2 tsp. pickling spice). Rinse corned beef (there probably isn’t a real reason to do this, I just do it :)) and place in crockpot. Rub with the mustard mixture to completely cover the top and sides (and bottom if you have enough). Add 1 cup of water (I generally pour this around the sides to avoid washing off the rub that I just put on the meat). Add potatoes and carrots on top of the meat. Cover, and cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.


Cut cabbage into small wedges and add to crockpot 30 minutes before serving. Cover and let cook (on HIGH) for 30 minutes.


Serve with bread (preferably irish soda bread), and your best green beer! 🙂

    Lori, you read my mind, I’ve been looking for a good Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe for the crockpot, I can NOT wait to try this one.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Welcome back to Slow Cooking Thursdays.

    I’ve never actually made corn beef and cabbage either, but this sounds like an easy enough recipe I might just have to try it!

    This sounds great. The only corned beef and cabbage we eat from the crock-pot is canned corned beef. I’m sure the real stuff is so much better.

    Hi Lori,
    Do the veges get soft in the crock pot? I don’t seem to have luck with them getting done enough for my family.

    Hi Terrie,

    In all honesty, I think that the veggies get too soft. But my family likes them done in the crockpot, so I’d say give it a try.
