Grandmother’s Corned Beef and Cabbage

Posted on

An easy traditional Irish dish made in the Crockpot that feeds the whole family. 

Servings: 6

Categories: Main Dishes & Meats


4 pounds corned beef brisket, seasoned
2 bottles Guinness Draught Stout
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 small head of cabbage, sliced
1 medium yellow onion, sliced 1/2″ thick
6 whole carrots, peeled and chopped
10 whole baby red potatoes, boiled


1. In the Crockpot, place the corned beef, any seasoning that came with it, and the two bottles of Guinness Draught Stout. Add 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Cook on High for 1 hour.

2. After an hour, lower the temperature to low and allow the corned beef to cook for 4-6 hours. Meanwhile, in a large pot, add red potatoes and enough water to cover them. Boil potatoes until done testing with a fork.

3. Remove corned beef and slice. Keep meat on the side while you put the sliced cabbage, carrots, and onion in the Crockpot. Turn temperature up to high and cook an additional 45 minutes, until the cabbage is translucent and the carrots are done.

4. Add sliced meat and cooked potatoes to the cabbage mixture, and heat for about 20 minutes to warm everything. Serve.

Serving Ideas: Serve with soda bread & Butter. Horseradish is also a favorite.

    • We had it yesterday for Sunday dinner and it turned out amazing. It was great to throw this all in the Crockpot and leave it, so I could finish painting the spare bedroom. 🙂
