Corned Beef & Cabbage made easy! Your cooking time will vary depending on the method you chose (crock pot versus dutch oven)
: Main Dish
Serves: 6-8
  • Corned Beef, 6-8 lbs
  • Water, about 6 cups
  • 1-2 cabbages, quartered
  • 1 lb bag of baby carrots, pre-washed
  • 2 lbs red skinned new potatoes
  1. Place corned beef in a crock pot or dutch oven with all juices from the bag. Add spice pouches and enough water to cover. Cook on low heat for 50 minutes per pound (stove top), or low heat for 6-8 hrs (crock pot).
  2. Wash cabbage, removing outer leaves and quarter, removing core.
  3. Scrub potatoes and halve. Place potatoes in a bowl of cold water to prevent browning if you are prepping your vegetables in advance.
  4. Add potatoes and carrots when there is about an hour of cooking time remaining.
  5. Add cabbage with 30 minutes of cooking time remaining.
  6. Remove corned beef to cutting board and allow to cool slightly. Slice against the grain, about ¼ inch thick.
  7. Using a strainer, remove vegetables to a serving bowl and leave the cooking broth behind.
  8. Serve with any variety of mustard, thousand island or Russian dressing.
