The luck of the Irish will be with you when you make this easy and tender corned beef recipe. My Dad’s birthday was March 17th and we have a wee bit of Irish in us so our family always celebrated with a corned beef. My mother didn’t use this recipe but I found the crockpot recipe to be so easy when the kids were young and we were always short on time. I still use this recipe. It’s so easy and there’s nothing to do except wait until it’s done and then slice it up. I always buy the largest corned beef I can find because it shrinks in the crockpot and I really enjoy having it the next day too.


4 carrots, cut into 3-inch pieces

2 onions, chopped

3-4 pound corned beef brisket with spice packet

1 cup water

2 cups apple juice

1 head green cabbage, cored and roughly chopped

Add the carrots and onions to the bottom of the 5-6 quart crockpot. Set corned beef on top. Add the apple juice and water along with the contents of the spice packet.

Cook on high 4-5 hours, depending on size, or low temperature 8-9 hours, until tender. During the last hour of cooking, add the roughly chopped cabbage on top of the beef.

Remove the beef to slice. Strain the vegetables into a bowl to serve.
