"I didn't have any cabbage, just dumped in a one pound bag of baby carrots and peeled and chunked up some russets. I had the crockpot on low for several hours then switched to high to cut a couple hours of cooking time. Was super easy and tasty."

"This was good. It is salty though. I made it without the cider vinegar because I didn't have any. I followed the review suggestions and took some of the broth out of the crockpot and used that to boil the cabbage by its self. We really liked it that way."

"this is an excellent recipe for CB&C. Throw everything in a crock pot in the morning and enjoy a delicious meal in the evening. i only used 1/2 head of cabbage cut into 6 wedges since that was all that would fit in the crockpot."

"My go-to corned beef recipe when I want to use the crockpot. Until this year it's the only way I have prepared this meal. It's tough to fit the cabbage in once everything else is in the crock. Sometimes I leave the cabbage out & at the end of cooking time I pull everything out & place in Corning wear to keep warm. I then place the cabbage in the spiced leftover juice on the stovetop. The cabbage tastes so nice cooked in that liquid. Use pickling spices if your corned beef doesn't come with the spice pack."

"Could not fit everything in my 5 qt slow cooker. Next time I'll use fewer potatoes. I used small red potatoes. Served it with creole mustard and it was fantastic!"

"I have never made a Corned Beef dinner using a crockpot...always on the stove, for 50 years! Always good and our family loved it! But, now I was looking for a fuss-free simple way to just basically throw all of it together at one time and just be able to forget about it, and get on with other things for the day...worry free! Sooo, I liked the sounds of this recipe , and gave it a try for the very first time...it was excellent! Simple, and lots of flavor! I am not a fan of Cabbage, but this time it was much better than usual. Not the same ole' bland taste...had a nice bite to it! I have now decided when I want to make a Corned Beef dinner, I will use this recipe and a crock pot...no more simmering and watching on the stove!"

"I make this every year and it turns out great! The meat is very tender and so are the vegetables. The only thing I did different from the recipe is I used a bag of petite red potatoes instead of the four large ones. Everything had good taste!"
