This recipe makes a warming and satisfying dinner, and is just as good the next day or in sandwiches. Serve with fresh bread.
I have been making my corned beef and cabbage in the crockpot for a long time. I would rate this as the #1 best tasting food in the crockpot. I will let you all in on a little secret though. The only liquid you need to add is the water(about half to 3/4 to the top of the pot) You do not need beer, chicken broth or any other liquid for flavor. The only spice I would recommend is either the packet that comes with the corned beef or some whole peppercorns. Otherwise the meat will do all of the flavoring for you. Also, I always add my potatoes in the beginning along with the carrots and onion. They do not come out mushy at all, just very melt in your mouth tasty. You can leave them in larger pieces or you can use the small whole potatoes. Then for the last hour of cooking you can add your cabbage. Very simple meal but so delicious. - 10 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Really good-my family loved it. The only change I made was to cook it on low for 8 hours and then add the cabbage the last 1/2 hour of cooking. 8 hours on high seemed like the meat might get too tough. - 04 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Amazingly simple, and amazingly delicious. The only changes I made were to set the slow cooker on low, instead of high. The meat came out tender and falling apart. I might put in the vegetables later on next time, but if you like stewy and smushy vegetables, then put it in the pot at the beginning. A solid hit! My boyfriend loved this dish, and it made leftovers for the two of us for a week! - 28 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
