Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
This traditional Irish American meal seems perfect for the slow cooker, and it is—but only if you construct it right.
Why This Recipe Works
When cooking corned beef and cabbage in the slow cooker, placement of the ingredients was key. We put the meat in the slow cooker first, sprinkled the seasoning (pickling spice) over it, and placed the potatoes and carrots between the meat and the wall of the slow cooker. This arrangement gave us enough room to be able to add the cabbage at the get-go, rather than at the end of cooking.
