This flavorful meal is a must for St. Patrick's Day, but great anytime of the year. While it usually cooks on the stovetop, a slow cooker makes it even easier. The recipe serves four nicely with enough leftover meat for Reuben sandwiches or other dishes. —Michelle Rhodes, Fort Bliss, Texas

"I had such high hopes for this recipe, especially considering all the good reviews. I don't know what happened but my meal did not turn out well. I followed the directions but the meat was as tough as shoe leather and the potatoes were not done. I plan on baking the meat and potatoes in the oven on low heat for a while to see if that will improve the tenderness. The next time I have a craving for a corned beef dinner, I will go out."

"I followed the recipe exactly, except I had a 2 1/2 lb. corned beef and used a 4.5 quart crockpot. After six hours, everything was cooked perfectly, but it all tasted like corned beef (too salty). Next year, I might do the corned beef this way, but cook the vegetables separately, which is unfortunately more work, but it may be worth it."

"Where are the spices, the packet that comes with it is not enough. This will be very bland as is. Crock pot is a good idea for most but not for corned beef."

"I found the cabbage to mushy. Either my Crock Pot was to crowded or my C beef may of had to much marbling, but it shredded on me. I prefer slicing it."

"Cooking for 8 to 10 hours is way to long. I love corn beef and cabbage but this was terrible. Cabbage was like eating mush Next time I will do it the right way and cook on top of the stove. Sorry usually the recipes on here are quite good but not this one"
