Good flavor but you have to watch the time. I put the cabbage in after 4 hours but had to take the potatoes out as they were done. The cabbage was done after another 1 1/2 hours. I think the recipe would probably work out time wise if cooked on low. I'll try it that way next time. I'd like for it to be a true load the crock pot and walk away recipe. And it may just be my crock pot.

We loved this recipe! I did adjust the times a bit. I added the potatoes and some carrots after about 4 1/2 hours and I added the cabbage after about 7 hours so it wouldn't be too soggy. It all turned out perfectly for our tastes. I did skip the onions because when I have added them early in the past they turn out too mushy, but next time I will try adding them with the potatoes or maybe even with the cabbage. I used a 4 pound corned beef and everything was done in 8 1/2 hours. Thanks, Bev, for the simple and delicious recipe!

Loved it! I looked for a Corned Beef and Cabbage receipe for our recent St Patrick's Day dinner. Wanted something tasty and simple and this recipe fit the bill to a T.

Reading other reviews on here, I took their advice and waited to put my cabbage and potatoes in. At the five hour mark, I added the cabbage, potatoes and a bag of baby carrots. Cooked on high for another hour and a half. Came out wonderfully!

The only changes I made was to delete the sugar (didn't miss it a bit) and add a bag of baby carrots. When I make this again, I would turn the heat down from high to low for a good portion of the time as the corned beef literally fell apart. While awesomely tasty, I would have preferred it slightly more firm.
