I added the veggies half way through and they still all ended up mushy! The meat is OK,but I roasted it in the oven with a brown sugar, mustard glaze for 30 minutes - so much better!!! And thank goodness I had half of my head of cabbage left - I just steamed it real quick. The cabbage in the crock pot was a mushy mess - YUCK!!
I made this as posted, except since I was in a hurry to put it together, forgot the carrots. Also, did not add water at all. Cooked for 9 hours, delish. I have never made corned beef that turned out this good!! Thanks Carol
First time I used crockpot for corned beef. I used 1 pound whole carrots, 2 pounds whole new potatoes, 2 onions halved placed on bottom meat on top. (Cooked cabbage separate) I cooked it 7 hours on low. Thanks so much for posting this, it turned out great. The corned beef very tender and did not shrink as much as on top of the stove. Thanks again for a great St. Patricks Day dinner when I came home from work!
This was the first time I cooked corned beef. My husband was a big fan but me not so much. I put the beef at the bottom to try to avoid a total mushfest with the veggies. It didn't work they were all mush. The meat was very tender. I might try it again but add the veggies later. Thanks.
Best corned beef I have ever made. . .texture was perfect. Unfortunately the veggies were way overdone and falling apart; next time I will simply leave carrots and potatoes whole. I put the cabbage on top of the meat so it didn't get waterlogged which worked great. Also added one whole onion, cut into quarters which had AMAZING flavor! NOTE: I made this again for St. Pat's Day 2010. I added the cabbage after 5 hours and it was still too mushy, so next time I will add it for just the last 2 hours of cooking.
I had no need to cut the corned beef as it fit perfectly atop some baby carrots and cut up, peeled potatoes. I added a bay leaf and an onion cut into wedges too. I added a few wedges of cabbage on top of the meat- and used the spice packet- just didn't add the caraway seeds this time. Just as good as if you boil it but I may add the cabbage later next time. Not sure if the onion added anything or not. I love that you can set this up and leave the house. Thanks!
This is an excellent recipe. I red the reviews and followed what someone else did and added an onion quartered. It gave the recipe excellent flavor! I will make this again and again! I don't even care for corned beef but my husband loves it so I made it for him!
Easy and yummy! Thanks!
I didn't have the cook time for our traditional corned beef and cabbage meal, so I searched out crock pot versions. This one worked out very nicely for us. The corned beef was very tender and had a great 'pure and simple' flavor. I followed the adivce of others and places the cabbage wedges on the top and left other veggies whole, to avoid them becoming too mushy.
Absolutely delicious! I didn't use caraway seed, nor did I cut the baby carrots, just put them in as is. I put the meat down and everything on top, and it came out excellent! Thank you for a great, simple, recipe.
