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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. You will need a large crock pot for this. Put the potatoes in the bottom of the crock pot, pierced once with a fork.
  2. Put the corned beef on top of the potatoes along with the juices from the bag.
  3. Run water in the bag and measure one cup and add to the pot.
  4. 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 .
  5. Cut cabbage into about 6 wedges.
  6. 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 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.
