This corned beef and cabbage slow cooker recipe is a fuss-free way to cook the traditional dish. I tried it for St. Patrick's Day a few years ago. Now it's a regular in my menu planning. This is terrific with Dijon mustard and crusty bread. —Karen Waters, Laurel, Maryland

"I made this the other night and had some fantastic compliments! I added 2 teaspoons of coorainder seeds in addition as per another recipe’s suggestion. It goes great with homemade soda bread!"

"I cooked the corned beef and vegetables (except the cabbage) for only 7 hours, which was just right. I followed an earlier suggestion and kept the meat and vegs warm in a low oven while the cabbage cooked on the stove in the spiced cooking liquid from the crock pot. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. Four stars for the recipe as written, five with the shorter cooking time and stove-top cabbage modification."

"So Yummy!!! Worth the tad bit of work to make it. Just make sure you have a sharp knife on hand to cut the beef in half. :D

If your corned beef does not have a seasoning packet, put the juice from what it was packed in it.
Some companys put the seasoning in packets, others just pack it in the seasoning to add more flavor to it. It took me a while to figure that out. Also I talked to someone in the business and they confirmed my thoughts.
Hope this helps someone."

"The corned beef I bought didn't come with a spice packet. Does anyone know the actual spices that are in it so I can add them myself?"

"I use a bottle of Kilt Lifter Beer as the liquid cooking meat on low for 7 hours. Remove meat from crockpot, wrap in aluminum foil and keep warm. Move cooking liquid to a large stock pot, add carrots and potatoes, bring to boil and cook until almost done. Add quartered cabbage and cook until soft but not mushy. I prefer to chop cabbage and cook in skillet with sliced onion and diced bacon until done. Slice meat and serve with cooked potatoes and carrots. Serve cabbage in separate dish."

"This recipe was awful. It lacked flavor. The vegetables were mushy & the meat was dry and tough."

"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."
