This is my version of Corned Beef and Cabbage for the Crock pot and it always turns out great. I like my method of cooking the cabbage outside of the crock pot at the end because it keeps the Cabbage from getting soggy and remains nice and crisp.
- 3 -4 lbs corned beef briskets
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 head cabbage
- 3 small red potatoes, unpeeled (about a dozen for 4 servings)
- 2 cups baby carrots
- 3 medium size onions
- 1 head cabbage
- You will need a large crock pot for this. Put the potatoes in the bottom of the crock pot, pierced once with a fork.
- Put the corned beef on top of the potatoes along with the juices from the bag.
- Run water in the bag and measure one cup and add to the pot.
- Quarter 3 medium sized onions and put on top of the meat and add carrots. Put lid on pot and cook on low 8-10 hours .
- Cut cabbage into about 6 wedges.
- Pour broth from crock pot over cabbage and steam until tender in a large frying pan 20 to 3o minutes.
This turned out very tender - instead of using another pot to steam the cabbage, I placed it on top of the corned beef in the crock pot on "warm" - when the cabbage was as tender as I wanted - Dinner was served.
This is the best corned beef that I have had! The texture was perfect- very tender but not stringy. I love steaming the cabbage outside the crockpot using the juices from the beef. I only steamed mine for 15 minutes - it was hot through but still crisp. I did some baked parsnips separately as they tend to get mushy in the crockpot and I do love them with corned beef. I mixed some horseradish and grainy mustard to serve on the side. Thanks Little Bee for a wonderful dinner that will be repeated
Made this for supper tonite & was kinda disappointed...it had good flavor, but the meat wasn't tender at all. It was 3 lb. corned beef & I cooked it on low for 9 hours. Doubt if I'll make it again...sorry. Guess I'll go back to boiling or baking the Corned beef from now on.
