  • 1 pound carrots scrubbed clean
  • 1-1/2 pounds potatoes baby redskin whole or halved
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed and peeled
  • 1 (4 pound) corned beef brisket plus seasoning pack
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spices optional
  • 1 (12 ounce) light beer
  • 1 small head green cabbage cut into wedges


  • mustard yellow, dijon or stone ground
  • butter
  • parsley minced, for garnish
  • kosher salt for potatoes, carrots and cabbage
  • black pepper
  • rolls or sliced bread


  • In your 6 quart or larger slow cooker, add carrots, baby potatoes, onion and garlic.
  • Place the brisket on top, add the seasoning packet plus the extra pickling spices (if using) and pour in the beer.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.*
  • Once cooked, use tongs to remove the brisket to a small, rimmed metal baking sheet. Cover tightly with foil and keep warm on the lowest setting.
  • Submerge the cabbage into the cooking liquids (if necessary, remove some of the carrots and potatoes -keeep warm in a dish covered tightly with foil) and cook for 1 hour or until the cabbage is fork tender. (the smaller the cabbage the faster it will cook)
  • Slice the corned beef and serve with mustard (if desired), carrots, potatoes and cabbage.
  • Top vegetables with butter, salt and pepper and sprinkle with minced parsley. Serve with soft dinner rolls or sliced bread.
