Simple, whole-food ingredients add up to one delicious corned beef and cabbage meal you can make for St. Paddy’s Day in your slow cooker or crock pot. I used what is called first cut brisket, Wellshire brand, which appeared to have a cleaner ingredient list.


    • 2 1/2 pounds corned beef brisket
    • 4 medium red potatoes
    • 4 small carrots, cut in half
    • 1/4 small green cabbage, cut out the core
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 onion, sliced
    • 1 (12-ounce) can of beer; What could be more Irish than a Guinness® Blond American Lager?


Number 1_grayPull the corned beef out of the fridge and let it sit for about 15-30 minutes before you start cooking it, so it’s not going in the slow cooker ice cold. Then the meat is done when you want it without overcooking the vegetables.

Number 2_grayLayer the vegetables into the slow cooker in this order: potatoes, carrots, half of the salt, cabbage, the other half of the salt, and the onion. Pour in the beer and put the corned beef on top.

Number 3_grayCover and cook on high for 1 hour and low for 3 hours. Or cook on low the entire time for about 6 hours. The meat should be tender and the vegetables fork tender.
