Easy Slow Cooker St. Patrick's Day Recipe For Corned Beef

Feast on Slow-Cooker Corned Beef This St. Patrick's Day

I have been really obsessed with crockpots lately. I thought I'd prepared just about every kind of meat dish there is (chili, chicken, pulled pork, you name it) — until I came across a corned beef and cabbage recipe. It was so hands-off, I was convinced it would be too good to be true.

The result wasn't too good to be true, but it was admittedly way too easy. If you can chop vegetables and place them with meat in a bowl, then you can make a St. Patrick's Day spread of meltingly tender corned beef, braised cabbage, and root vegetables. Consider it your veritable pot o' gold — just remember not to peek!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef & Cabbage With Horseradish Cream

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef & Cabbage With Horseradish Cream

Easy Slow Cooker Recipe for Slow-Cooker Corned Beef, Vegetables, and Cabbage With Horseradish Cream

Ingredients

For corned beef and cabbage:
4 pounds lean raw corned beef brisket
3 tablespoons pickling spice (often included with brisket)
1 medium rutabaga, halved and cut into wedges
1 pound large carrots, cut into 4-inch pieces
1-1/4 pounds large fingerling potatoes
1 leek, white and light-green parts only, cut into 3-inch pieces
1/2 head Savoy cabbage, cut into wedges

For horseradish cream:
1 cup sour cream
6 tablespoons prepared white horseradish
1 tablespoon finely chopped dill pickle
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives or green onion tops

Directions

  1. Prep the corned beef and vegetables: Place the corned beef in a large slow cooker and scatter the pickling spices on top. Layer the rutabaga, carrots, potatoes and leek in the cooker (in this order for even cooking). Add enough hot water (4 to 5 cups) to cover the meat by at least 1 inch, put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high, 7 to 8 hours.
  2. Make the horseradish cream: Whisk all horseradish cream ingredients together in a small bowl to blend. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  3. Make the cabbage: Remove the meat and vegetables from the slow cooker and keep warm. Put the cabbage in a microwave-safe dish with 2 cups cooking liquid from the slow cooker, cover and microwave until tender, 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Slice the corned beef and serve alongside the slow-cooked vegetables, cabbage and 1-1/2 cups horseradish cream.

Serves 6.

Dang it, Yum, I think you just convinced me. :) Now I just have to convince my husband that I'm not crazy for wanting to buy ten pounds of meat in one week's groceries, haha!

Suziryder, what a problem to have! Life is full of challenges, and hopefully you can overcome this one. ;-) Believe it or not, this corned beef goes quickly, even between two. Or, if you have leftovers, you can save them/consider freezing them for a few more corned beef dishes you will soon be seeing on Yum...

Gee, thanks Yum. THANKS FOR REMINDING ME ABOUT ST. PATRICK'S DAY. Now I have a huge problem. My husband wants me to make a ham for his birthday, because this ham recipe is like, his favorite thing EVER, so I'm going to make a huge ham on March 13. And now I want to make this huge corned beef on March 17 because I've never attempted a corned beef and this one looks so good AND easy, and WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH ALL THAT MEAT?! That's a lot of meat, Yum. A lot of delicious, delicious meat.

Boo. I can't get the recipe to come up. Is it me? I've never made corned beef, but if it is as easy as claimed, I might give it a go!
