  • Add the potatoes and carrots halfway through the cooking time. This prevents them from over cooking and getting too mushy. You may also include some cabbage to make it more genuine. I don’t like cabbage, and I don’t even like the smell it has when it’s cooking. If you plan to use the cabbage, add it in the last hour or so; the smell transports me back to the days when the school cafeteria prepared it!

  • Take the corned beef out of the slow cooker and cut it into brisket-sized pieces. It will be nice and tender and basically pull apart.

What spices are used to make traditional corned beef?

Typically, a spice packet containing a blend of peppercorns, mustard seeds, dill seeds, and bay leaves is attached to a corned beef brisket. Although I suggest using this, you can substitute any combination of those spices from your cupboard or omit them entirely.

Tips for Making the Best Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

  • On high, corned beef and cabbage will take approximately five hours to cook; on low, it will take ten hours.
  • Savoy cabbage is what we use because we like the way it tastes and looks. Feel free to use regular green cabbage if you prefer.
  • To ensure that the wedges remain whole, cut the cabbage without cutting off the root end. This makes a much better presentation.
  • Since cabbage wedges soften more quickly than carrots, onions, and celery, add them after the root vegetables near the end of cooking. This guarantees that when the meal is ready to serve, the cabbage will be both tender and appealingly green. If cooking the corned beef on high, give the cabbage about 45 minutes to cook, and if cooking on low, give it about 1 1/2 hours.
