Slow Cooker Guinness Corned Beef -let the slow cooker do all the work for you to create this easy one dish meal!
Course: Beef, Slow Cooker
Servings: 6
Author: Countryside Cravings
  • 1 3.5 pound corned beef brisket
  • 2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes (or whatever you have on hand) scrubbed well and cut into large chunks
  • 2 1/2 cups baby carrots
  • 1 12 oz Guinness stout (or can use about 2 cups beef broth)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • Seasoning packet that came with corned beef
  • 1 small head of cabbage
  1. Trim the corned beef of all visible fat. Place in the bottom of the slow cooker. Sprinkle with brown sugar and seasoning packet. Pour Guinness around the corned beef then place the potatoes and carrots around the corned beef. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours. NO PEEKING! I don't recommend cooking on high.
  2. Remove outer leaves from cabbage and cut into 4 wedges. Place in crock pot around the beef. Return lid and cook for 20 minutes. This will give you tender crisp cabbage. If you like softer cabbage put in earlier.
