Corned Beef Supper

What better way to celebrate the holiday than with this hearty one-pot meal. The beef, potatoes and carrots are tender and full-flavored. "I often fix this for St. Patrick's Day, but it's good any time of the year," notes Dawn Fagerstrom, a field editor in Warren, Minnesota.

    My family loves this recipe. It's our go to corned beef dinner, and doubling the recipe ensures plenty of leftovers.

    This was tasty, but I found it needs more cooking time - not for the potatoes, carrots and onions, but for the meat and the cabbage. Delicious. I didn't have apple juice on hand, so I used water and added half of an apple to the vegetable.

    I have been making this recipe for several years. What better way to make this than in the crockpot. My boys look forward to St. Patricks day, or whenever I make this.

    I loved this recipe. I use a 3 lb. brisket so I tripled all of the other ingredients, cooked it for 7 hrs., and it turned out great.

    This recipe is just outstanding! Followed the directions and it tasted perfect. I've eaten corn beef and cabbage many times, but this is by far the best. Next time I will add more liquid to the crockpot though. The apple juice gave the potatoes and carrots a wonderful taste.

    This may be the best corn beef brisket I have ever tasted. I added a glaze (brown sugar,water and grey poupon) and baked for 30 min. in the oven after 4 hours in the slow cooker.

    I have cooked corned beef in apple juice for many years and have shared this essence of this crockpot recipe often
