  • 1 (3½ pound) (1.5kg) corned beef brisket
  • 2 pounds (1kg) Yukon gold potatoes (or whatever you have on hand) scrubbed well and cut into large chunks
  • 20 baby carrots
  • 1 (12 oz) (355ml) Guinness stout (or can use about 2 cups beef broth)
  • ¼ cup (50g) packed brown sugar
  • Seasoning packet that came with corned beef
  • 1 small head of cabbage
  1. Trim the corned beef of all visible fat if desired. 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.
Recipe Notes
  1. This corned beef and veggies cooks for a long time and so the potatoes and carrots will be quite soft. If you prefer your potatoes and carrots not so soft add them half way through cooking even though the recipe says no peeking. 
  2. The reason not to peek is because everytime the lid is removed from the slow cooker it adds an extra 30 minutes to the cooking time. It's so tempting to lift the lid and check the meat while cooking but try no to. 
  3. Nutrition Facts: Since different brands of ingredients have different nutritional information, the information shown is just an estimate. Nutrition calculated with the vegetables too. Makes 6 gernerous portions.
