Corned Beef and Cabbage in a Crock Pot

Top of the mornin' to ya! What would St. Patrick's day be without corned beef and cabbage?

Here's a recipe from:

  • 4 cups hot water
  • 2 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large or 2 medium onions, cut into wedges
  • 1 2-lb. corned beef round or brisket, packaged with spices
  • 8 small white or yellow potatoes, scrubbed and cut into quarters
  • 1 head of green cabbage (about 1 1/2 lbs.), cored and cut into 10 wedges
  1. In a 6-quart electric slow cooker, combine the water, vinegar, sugar, pepper and onions, mixing well. Place the corned beef in the mixture. Scatter the potatoes over the top and along the sides.
  2. Cover and cook on the High heat setting 4 hours. Remove the lid and scatter the cabbage wedges over the top. Cover and continue cooking on High 3 to 4 hours longer, or until the beef is tender. To serve, carve the beef into slices and serve with the cabbage and potatoes, with some of the cooking liquid spooned on top of the beef to keep it moist. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
