  • 1 corned beef brisket 3-5 lbs
  • 3 carrots peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 3/4 lb small yellow potatoes halved
  • 1/2 head green cabbage cut into wedges
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grainy mustard for serving optional


  • Remove the corned beef from the package. Rinse with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Place the corned beef brisket (fat side up), carrots and potatoes in a slow cooker. Add 3 cups of water to the slow cooker, plus the seasoning packet that comes in the corned beef package.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
  • Add the cabbage on top of the corned beef and cook on LOW for another 2 hours.
  • Remove the cabbage, corned beef, potatoes and carrots from the slow cooker. Slice the corned beef against the grain.
  • Place the butter, garlic, parsley and salt and pepper in a small bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments or until melted.
  • Drizzle the garlic butter over the carrots, potatoes and cabbage. Place the meat, potatoes and vegetables on a platter and serve with mustard on the side if desired.



The potatoes and carrots will get quite soft being cooked all day in the crock pot. If you prefer firmer veggies, add them halfway through the cook time.
