Every year on St. Patrick's Day I make corned beef and cabbage. It's the easiest meal since I make it in the slow cooker and our family loves it. They love it so much that I now make two cuts of corned beef. Life with four growing boys!
I simply put everything in the slow cooker, almost cover with water and cook on low all day. It doesn't get much easier than that.
Here is a quick video showing how to make this easy slow cooker corned beef and cabbage.
I started with two packages of point cut corned beef (about 5 1/2 total lbs.) because we have a big family who loves corned beef and cabbage. You can buy packaged ready to use corned beef in point cut or flat cut. Flat cut was a little more expensive so I bought point cut, since we don’t have a preference.
I put the meat in the slow cooker (amazon link) then sprinkle the spice packets over the meat. The spice packet comes in the package of meat. Then I add some chopped onion, quartered russet potatoes, carrot slices and small wedges of cabbage. I pour water into the slow cooker to almost cover everything and added a little fresh ground salt and pepper over the vegetables. I cook on low all day, until vegetables are tender and meat is done, around 8 hours or so.
This is such an easy dinner to prepare and it is always a treat. We make it every year for St. Patrick’s day, but really should make it more often. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I absolutely love corned beef and I can even remember the very first time I ever tried it. But I have never tried to make it at home. I can't believe it's so easy and I even have a slow cooker. Weather is turning a little colder of late so this would be such a nice family meal to have.

It is perfect for this cooler weather. The boys even love it leftover and finished it off for lunch today.

A fantastic family meal! I couldn't agree more and when my children were younger and all at home, I made this regularly. I particularly love having leftover corned beef for lunch the next day.
