Recipe: Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

With the maiden name O’Daniel, you’d think I’d be head-over-heels for Corned Beef and Cabbage. Not so much. (Unless you count that packaged Buddig Corned Beef…)

Not so much, that is … until we found this recipe last year. I don’t even remember where I found it, but we liked it so much it actually made it into my recipe book.

I figured I’d post this today so that if you’re interested in making it for St. Patrick’s Day, you have enough notice 🙂

Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage


  • 4 1/2 lbs corned beef brisket
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • 3 Tbsp vinegar
  • 1 head cabbage, wedged
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Cups water


  1. Combine ingredients in crock pot with cabbage on top.
  2. Cook on low 10-12 hours or on high 6 -7 hours.

(You can put potatoes and/or carrots on the bottom as well.)

  1. you’ve solved my problem! i have an appt. to get my hair done tomorrow after work and was fretting over the fact that there’d be no time to cook my corned beef and cabbage.

    i’ll be trying this!

  2. Okay, I’m sure this is good, but I’ve seriously got the best corned beef crock pot recipe. Instead of vinegar and white sugar, use brown sugar and a bottle of Guinness. I know, it sounds gross (I hate beer, Guinness in particular), and it kind of makes your house smell like a brewery. But it’s sooooo awesome! I can’t wait for tomorrow. I just got back from the liquor store (hmmm, last year I got ID’d buying my Guinness. This year the guy didn’t even blink as he sold it to me…how things change in a year!)

    Enjoy your corned beef tomorrow! Happy St. Pat’s Day!

  3. Hmmm… yeah, I also did NOT get carded (which I’m 36 so that is just starting to happen these days) for my 2 cans of Guinness that I bought yesterday for my corned beef recipe! Hmpf! Hopefully that is good luck and it means my crock pot is going to make magical things happen while I sleep tonight. 🙂 This will be my first time attempting corned beef in a crock pot. I have heard good things so far. The slower the better right? We shall see……. I think I will wait to put the cabbage in til the morning. I’m so worried my potatoes are going to get soggy! I got mini petite red potatoes to put on the bottom of the meat along with baby carrots and a quartered onion. Crossing fingers this works. 🙂

  4. Interesting, the “Recipe: Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage” looks very similar to a recipe out of the “Ebook of 470 Crock Pot Recipes”.

    Some of the Many Advantages of Crock Pot Cooking
    is being very efficient in saving time when living within a busy lifestyle; and
    preparing all your ingredients in morning when you are feeling energized and creative, and then sit down to a healthy meal at night when you may not have been in the mood for cooking;

  5. Oh how easy! WOW!
    I am taking a lazy way out and making potato soup with irish soda bread. (I can’t stand cabbage! UGH!)

  6. FANtabulous! mine ended up cooking for 12 hours and my only “complaint” (if you can call it that) is that it was so tender it fell apart as i tried to pick it up out of the crock pot. as a result, i wasn’t really able to slice it against the grain in nice, neat, thin slices. this is definitely the way to go though! thanks again for sharing!
