Crockpot Corned Beef and Cabbage


I love using my Crock Pot! When I found this really simple recipe for Corned Beef, I just had to try it. It has now become a family favorite!

Ingredients:
5-6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small onion, cut into wedges
3 cups of water
2 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP vinegar
8 oz beer
4 lbs corned beef brisket
1 (1 lb) bag of baby carrots
1 lb small red potatoes, quartered
1 head of green cabbage, cut into wedges

—-seasoning packet ingredients—–
leave this out if you are using the packet that comes with the meat.
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
2 bay leaves, crushed
8 Allspice berries
1/2 tsp salt

 1. First place onion wedges and garlic at the bottom of your crock-pot. This is going to act as a stand for your meat, so it doesn’t touch the bottom and dry out. Place beef on top of onions and garlic.

2. Next, mix together water, beer, sugar and vinegar. 

3. Pour over beef and then sprinkle seasoning packet over meat.  If you are using the homemade corned beef seasoning recipe, simply mix together the mustard seeds, bay leaves, allspice berries, salt and pepper and sprinkle on top of beef. 

4. Set crock-pot, cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours.

5. After 4 hours of cooking, add in potatoes and carrots. Cover and continue cooking

 6. When 1 hour remains, add cabbage to the crockpot. Cover and continue cooking for the remainder of the time.

After 8 hours, you will have an amazing dinner!
