Crock Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage

In my opinion, Corned beef and cabbage is best made in the Crock pot! The meat was so incredibly flavorful and juicy…once a year on St. Patrick’s Day is not enough for this delicious dinner! However, you must at least make it once a year!!!! I make mine with Guinness Beer, root vegetables, spices, and a few little extra ingredients that will make everyone’s St. Patrick’s Day! Get ready for the BEST Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe! Let’s make it!

  • 1 head of green cabbage cored and cut into large slices
  • 1/2 stick of butter sliced into pats
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Garnish: yellow mustard


  • Slice the vegetables into large chunks (wait on the cabbage)
  • Add the carrots, red potatoes, onion, & garlic to the crockpot (7 qt. crock pot)
  • add the water, beef broth, and beer into the crock pot
  • Place the bay leaves and apple cider vinegar into the crockpot
  • Add the corned beef fatty side up into the crock pot and cover the beef with the spice packet that comes in the package.
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Cover the crock pot and set to high and cook for 5 hours
  • Core the cabbage and cut in half, then cut into thick slices. Then, rotate the cabbage and slice across once.
  • Add the cabbage into the crock pot and cover and cook another hour or so at high setting.
  • The last 1-2 minutes of cooking cover the beef with pats of butter; then cover for another couple minutes until the butter melts.
  • Remove the corned beef and place in the center of a large serving tray. Serve the cabbage on one side of the corned beef and the potatoes and carrots on the other. Add plenty of ramekins of yellow mustard for the family to dip and enjoy! Make it!!


  • The pickling spice that you need will come with the corned beef when you buy at the grocery store. It’s just enough to make this so delicious! All you need extra is a little salt and pepper!
