Thanks for the response. Well I guess I will continue to give this a miss if it has been "cured" with salt as I am on a sodium restricted diet to to CHF.

But I could make the recipe with just a regular cut of beef.

Not silly at all. The name comes from the coarse salt kernels, or "corns," that the meat is cured with.

The only "corned beef" I had while growing up was from a can -- and that wasn't even "food".... I didn't like that then, and I have never tried it as an adult......

So what IS corned beef. Is it a "method' of cooking, a recipe, a cut of beef, or what? Sorry if this question sounds silly....

For St. Patrick's Day or any cold winter day, this recipe for classic Corned Beef and Cabbage in the crockpot is delicious and super easy too. If you want to cook your corned beef the traditional way, see Classic Corned Beef. And don't forget to check out Start With ... Corned Beef for ways to use the yummy leftovers.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 11 hours

Total Time: 11 hours, 25 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

6 carrots, cut into chunks
2 onions, chopped
2-3 lb. corned beef brisket with seasoning packet
12 oz. can beer (non alcoholic is fine)
2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
8 wedges cabbage


In 4-6 quart crockpot, combine carrots and onions. Rinse corned beef under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Place in crockpot and sprinkle with contents of seasoning mix. Pour beer over brisket and spread mustard on brisket. In small bowl mix brown sugar with water and pour over brisket. Cover crockpot and cook on low setting for 10-12 hours.
Remove corned beef from crockpot and cover with foil, then put into 200 degrees F oven to keep warm. Add cabbage wedges to vegetables and liquid in crockpot. Cover crockpot and cook on high for additional 30-40 minutes or until cabbage is crisp tender.

To serve, cut corned beef across grain into thin slices. Remove vegetables from slow cooker with slotted spoon and serve with corned beef. Serve cooking juices over the food, if desired. Offer additional mustard on the side; I myself prefer honey mustard.

If you have a newer, hotter cooking crockpot you might want to check it after 8 or 9 hours. Although, with this much liquid, there shouldn't be much problem with anything burning.
