St. Patrick’s Day is coming next 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.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!
Slow Cooker Corned Beef was one of the slow cooker dishes where I first 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; enjoy!
