Irish Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe-


(serves 4)

  • 3 lb. Irish corned beef brisket
  • 2 medium sized white onions, peeled and quartered
  • 8 small potatoes, peeled and left whole, or 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut in half
  • 1 head cabbage, tough and/or blemished outside leaves removed, tough stem core cut out, and tender head chopped into small (about 1-1/2” to 2”) wedges
  • 1 tsp. each of freshly ground black peppercorns and course sea salt
  • 3 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 cups water

You will need: A slow-cooker (crockpot) – if you don’t have one, and wish to obtain one of good quality, you can do that by going Here.

  1. Place all the ingredients in your crock pot, adding the cabbage in last, spread evenly on top.
  2. Leave the corned beef brisket whole if you can fit it into your crockpot as is, but if not, trim it as needed for good fit.
  3. Secure the lid (preferably a glass lid) and cook on low setting for 10 to12 hours, or on high for 6 to 7 hours.
  4. To serve your Irish Corned Beef and Cabbage, place the brisket in the center of a large serving platter, and slice enough portions for each person to have a first serving. Place the potatoes and cabbage in an attractive arrangement around the brisket.
