Simple Corned Beef - Crock Pot

Total Time

This corned beef is easy to prepare, and is so tasty you'll want to make it often. I like to serve it with Colcannon. If there are any leftovers, I slice it thinly and serve with mustard between slices of warm rye bread. Serving sizes will vary depending on the thickness of slices.


  1. Remove beef from the plastic bag and rinse.
  2. Place onion slices in the bottom of the crock pot. Place beef on top.
  3. Add bay leaf, cloves and peppercorns.
  4. Mix together the water, mustard and sugar. Pour over the beef.
  5. Cover, and cook on High for approximately 5 hours.
  6. When cooked, remove from the broth and allow to rest (covered loosely with foil) for 15 minutes before slicing.

This really was yummy. I served the Colcannon recipe as well and we all felt a little bit Irish!

Oh so easy to do and so moist and tasty, great corned beef. I have Kambrook crockpot and used a 1.5k corned beef and took **Jubes** tip and doubled the water but left everything else the same and cooked for 3 hours on automatic and 2.5 hours on high. Served with World's Best Mashed Potatoes and White/Cheese Sauce. Thank you Diana #2, made as a recipenap for Aussie/Kiwi Swap #36 as a recipenap.

*Reviewed for Aussie Forum Recipe Tag* Great recipe- my family loved this juicy tender corned beef. I used a 1.4 kilo piece and doubled the liquid. I have a family sized 'Sunbeam' crock/slowcooker which seems to cook everything up quickly on High. 5 hours was cooked to perfection. Served with mashed potato, gravy and steamed peas. Great recipe Diana. Photos also to be posted
