Great way to cook a fork-tender corned beef. I can't say the same for the vegetables though. Didn't care for the color or texture after such long cooking. I generally cook corned beef in water and I recommend doing so with this recipe. I tried the beef broth using no extra salt and low sodium broth. Even so the entire meal was very salty. Using water should avoid that problem. Corned beef broth makes a great base for bean soup.

This was a wonderful 30 minute recipe but we grilled the onions and some red peppers & spices before adding beef stock, diced ham, potatoes & carrots - boiled for 10 minutes, then added the cabbage for the last 10 minute was WONDERFUL and I don't like cabbage.

I love slow cooking. I cooked this in my oven on the slow cooker feature. It was cooked on high for 4 hours and then reduced to low for an additional 2 to 3 hours. The vegetables were cut in large chunks since they were going to be cooking for an extended length of time. I reduced the amount of potatoes and added a rutabaga. Corned beef can be high in sodium and I used water instead of the beef broth omitting any additional salt. By cooking the cabbage separately, it retained its color and did not overpower the meat and other vegetables. Thanks Marie for posting.
