Slow Cooker Corned Beef from Food Bloggers (Recipe Collections)

Slow Cooker Corned Beef from Food Bloggers [found on SlowCookerFromScratch.com]
Recipe tips from food bloggers for perfect corned beef in the slow cooker!

Introducing Recipe Collections, a new feature for Slow Cooker from Scratch!  It didn't take me long after I started bookmarking great slow cooker recipes to realize that there were certain classic dishes that get made over and over again in a CrockPot, with each cook adding their own individual touches.  I decided the best way to include as many of these tried-and-true slow cooker recipes as possible was to occasionally do a round-up of assorted recipes for the same dish from different bloggers.  And of course St. Patrick's Day is coming this week, so it seemed like slow cooker corned beef was the perfect place to start!

Slow Cooker Corned Beef
Corned Beef with Veggies and Horseradish Sauce (Photo from Kalyn's Kitchen.)
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.


Dijon Corned Beef (Photo from A Year of Slow Cooking.)
This Dijon Corned Beef in the Slow Cooker from A Year of Slow Cooker has a paste of honey, brown sugar, mustard, and cloves rubbed on the meat before it cooks all day in the slow cooker.


Beer Braised Corned Beef (Photo from What's Cookin' Chicago.)
What's Cookin' Chicago has Beer Braised Corned Beef that's also flavored with vegetables, chicken stock, and spices.


Corned Beef with Horseradish Cream (Photo from Skinnytaste.)
I'm a big horseradish fan, so I love the sound of this Corned Beef with Horseradish Cream from Skinnytaste.


Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage (Photo from Simple Nourished Living.)
Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage from Simple Nourished Living cooks the vegetables with the corned beef but adds the cabbage near the end.


Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage (Photo from Skinnytaste.)
Another idea from Skinnytaste, this Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage adds a generous amount of parsley to bump up the green factor!


Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Vegetables (Photo from A Year of Slow Cooking.)
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.


Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage (Photo from Slender Kitchen.)
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. 


Slow Cooker Corned Beef (Photo from The Merlin Menu.)
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.


Are you cooking corned beef and cabbage in your slow cooker for St. Patrick's Day?   If you have experience with this dish, we'd love to have you share any tips or your recipe link in the comments.

Thank you for featuring my corned beef recipes! This is a great round-up, you can never have too many ways to cook this Irish staple--
(says my husband... :-) )

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

Kalyn said...

I agree, never too many recipes for corned beef!

Pam enjoy the green beer!

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.

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

I can't wait to try one of these recipes this weekend! Thanks for posting them! =)

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.
