Delicious!! I love dishes that can be quickly "thrown" together and then forgotten until serving time. This dish definitely fits that category. I made it as written using the 2 TBS. of Dijon mustard, 1/4 tsp. caraway seeds and a dark porter for the beer. The only thing I did differently was to add the cabbage during the last hour of cooking, turning the crockpot up to "high" to make sure the cabbage got done. I served this with roasted red potatoes and carrots. My family loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this quick, easy, and delicious recipe...it is definitely a keeper. I made this for ZWT 3.

I followed this recipe without the caraway seeds...it was FANTASTIC! Everyone raved about the dinner! This was my first attempt at Corned Beef & Cabbage, so I was thrilled. The Apple Cider Vinegar gave tang while the Brown Sugar took away the acidity. The beer melded everything together for a flavorful meal. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

This was terrific!!!! I bought a 4 pound corned beef (wih the seasoning packet) and HAD to cook it today or lose it. Unexpectedly I got home much later than I thought (2pm) and looked for a way to cook it quickly (by 8 pm) for dinner. This was SUCH a winner. I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, so used small red potatos instead of cabbage, light beer instead of dark, and the seasoning packet that came with the meat instead of the dry spices. It was still absolutely excellent. I cooked it on high fom 3-8 pm. Next time I'll make it according to the recipe (it couldn't get any better, but we'll give it a shot!), but for taste, ease, and adaptability I give this the highest marks! Thanks, Parsley!

Amazing. I prepared it exactly according to your recipe and it turned out perfectly. I was a little afraid of overstuffing my smallish crock pot, but it cooked down and the flavor/consistency of both the corned beef and the cabbage was fantastic. Thanks for sharing this recipe...I have a feeling that it won't be the last time I make it.

Wonderful recipe! I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't add the caraway seeds. I used a bottle of Guinness beer and added red potatoes and carrots to the pot. We both loved it!! This will be my ONLY way to cook corned beef. So easy and tasty!!

This was very good. I had a hard time getting all the cabbage in my 6qt slow cooker, but I just kept adding more as it cooked down. I used a full can of Guiness for the beer. The cabbage part of the meal was unbelieveable-- I think I will always make cabbage like this from now on. The corned beef was a little less flavorful than I had hoped, however this was my first time cooking it myself instead of buying it from the deli. Overall, highly recommended and a satisfying meal!

I was already doing my corned beef in the crockpot and deci3ded at the last minute to throw a little extra something in. I added the vinegar, brown sugar, mustard and beer. With about an hour left to go I added wedges of cabbage to the top and they were perfectly steamed and wonderfully flavored. Thanks for posting!

I made this for the family and they all loved it. I added some carrots and celery to it. I wasn't a fan of corned beef before. I had never tasted carraway seeds. I can't stand beer. I still gave this recipe a try. I did not taste the beer at all. I will be making my corned beef and cabbage recipe again.

You have to try this! This was SO good! I cook a lot of corned beef, we eat it all year long. This recipe is my favorite by far. I had a 5 1/2 lb corned beef so I doubled the cider vinegar, brown sugar, mustard (I used Grey Pupon with horseradish bc that's what we had), pepper (fresh cracked), cloves and caraway seeds. I skiped the cabbage just because none of us eat it. But I did throw in a bag of baby carrots the last 2 hours which were out of this world good. I made it with Champ (from this site, also delicious). My husband did comment that this is sweeter then any other he's ever had but he also said that it's his favorite. I'm going to throw out all other recipes! I'll only ever make this one! Thanks for sharing!

I really didn't care for this recipe. The sauce overpowered everything else, and while the sauce didn't taste bad, I really want to taste the cabbage and the corned beef, as well as the potatoes and carrots. Next year I'll go back to my tried and true corned beef and cabbage, cooked with potatoes and carrots, with water, on the stove.
