Additional Information

This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer's directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

For a variation, cut a small head of cabbage into 6 wedges, and place on top of the corned beef in the slow cooker for a more filling meal.

Plan to use leftover corned beef for soups, stews, pot pies or sandwiches.


Cover and refrigerate corned beef, cut into cubes, up to 4 days or freeze up to 4 months. To thaw frozen corned beef, place container in refrigerator about 8 hours.
