Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 9 hours
Servings 6


  • 1 corned beef aprox 3-4lbs point or flat cut with seasoning packet (Flat cut is leaner than the point cut)
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 4 carrots whole, peeled & cut in 3rds (or can sub baby carrots)
  • 1 ½ lbs red potatoes, leave whole if small or cut in half if large
  • 1 small yellow onion sliced
  • ½ head green cabbage quartered (optional)
  • 4 cups beef broth (can sub 1 cup for favorite Irish beer like Guinness)


  • In crock pot, lay down a layer of onion slices at the bottom.
  • Put corned beef on top of the onions with fat side on top and sprinkle on seasoning packet.
  • Pour in beef stock.
  • Add in potatoes, garlic, & carrots.
  • Make sure corned beef is basically covered with liquid and put on lid.
  • Cook on low setting for 8-9 hours. But set a timer for 6 hours if adding cabbage.
  • After 6 hours add in the cabbage (optional) so it cooks for only the last 2 hours.
  • Pull out corned beef and on a cutting board slice against the grain about ½” thick slices.
  • Lay on a large serving platter with the vegetables.


Some people do not like cabbage so can leave it out of the recipe entirely.
Can serve with a coarse ground mustard and the leftovers make for great sandwiches on rye bread.
