This year I was on top of my corned beef and cabbages, last year I wanted to make it to late there was no corned beef to be found :(. Ended up making it a week before St Patrick’s day.
I knew I wanted to do it in my slow cooker and wanted to use beer. seriously so easy just put everything in the slow cooker and leave it alone. Also that I wanted to cook the vegetables separately, so didn’t all turn to mush. Save all the drippings to make an amazing gravy for corned beef poutine!!
Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
You will need
2-4 pounds corned beef, and the seasoning package
12 ounces of Guinness draught
1 small onion, cut in chuncks
2 clove garlic, chopped
2 cups about beef, beer broth
1 pound red potatoes, chunks
1 cup of baby carrots, chunks
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 cabbage head, cut in wedges
Place the corned beef fat side up in the slow cooker. Add seasoning package, Guinness, onion, and garlic. Cover with lid, set to low and let cook 7-10 hours (Depends on the size of corned beef and how hot your low is). Once done turn the slow cooker to warm. Take out most of the beef beer juice. Its fine if you get onion chunks too.
Add the beer beef broth in a pot over medium heat on the stove. Once simmering add the potatoes, carrots and garlic in the pot. Cover and bring back to a simmer. After 5 minutes add in the cabbage. Let cook for 10-15 more minutes.
Enjoy the meat with the vegetables. I love mine with horseradish sauce.
