Slow Cooker Corned Beef from Food Bloggers (Recipe Collection)

Recipe tips from food bloggers for perfect corned beef in the slow cooker!  Hope you're getting ready for St. Patrick's Day.

St. Patrick's Day is coming this week, so I hope Slow Cooker Corned Beef is going to be happening at your house!  I first posted this round-up of Slow Cooker Corned Beef Recipes back in 2012, but since then I've updated the post with even more options for corned beef cooked in a crockpot, so I'm featuring the post again to get you in the mood for March 17. 

All photos are copyrighted to the blog mentioned in the recipe link; just click the link under each photo to get the complete recipe from the original site.   Corned beef is definitely not the most photogenic of foods, but if you're a corned beef lover like I am, I bet all these look good!

Back in 2012 this was one of the very first slow cooker dishes where I realized the most useful thing for classic recipes like this would be a whole collection of slow cooker recipes from different bloggers.  I love the way those posts help me feature more of my food blogging friends, although they do take some time to put together!  You can see all the posts where I've done a recipe round-up on the photo-index page for Recipe Collections or under the tab Recipe Collections; hope you enjoy!

The photo above is my own Corned Beef with Veggies and Horseradish Sauce, something I've made for many years in the slow cooker.   I'll be making that again this year, although these days I'd probably make Roasted Cabbage with Lemon instead of cooking the cabbage in the slow cooker.

Stephanie also has Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Vegetables at A Year of Slow Cooking, which she assembled the night before and then cooked the next day.  If you have two slow cookers, you could make her Roasted Cabbage and Vegetables and cook the veggies separately.

There's a little bit of Guinness added to this Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage from Slender Kitchen.  Kristen does serve this with cabbage, but she cooks it separately so the cabbage will keep some crunch.


Crockpot Corned Beef and Cabbage from Family Fresh Meals cooks the corned beef, potatoes, carrots, and cabbage, with each vegetable added at the right time to cook it perfectly.

This Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage from The Merlin Menu uses partly apple juice along with water to cook the corned beef, which I think sounds like a great idea!  When it's done the meat is spread with a mixture of brown mustard and brown sugar and browned under the broiler.


CrockPot Corned Beef and Cabbage from Kitchen Gadget Girl includes information about the spicy mustard and wine that they paired with the meat!

  2. I completely forgot St. Patty's day is coming up! I'll probably be eating out and washing it down with some green beer.

  4. I just bought one at Costco and it has a slow cooker recipe on the package. But I do want to make horseradish sauce to go with it. I do one in the slow cooker almost every year and it seems like they are pretty fool-proof.

  5. Brenda, a couple of these recipes had options I hadn't thought of, but I agree, corned beef is simple in the slow cooker.

  7. I always make my irish corned beef and cabbage in the slow cooker. I add in carrots, 1/2 recipe of the potatoes and a bottle of irish beer. The cabbage goes in 1/2 hour before serving time. It is the easiest and most delicious way to make the dish.
