How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the broth and vinegar into a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the onions, potatoes, carrots, beef and cabbage. Submerge the Bouquet Garni (see tip) in the broth mixture.

Step 2

Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours or until the beef is fork-tender. Remove the Bouquet Garni.

Recipe Tips

  • Bouquet Garni: Lay a 4-inch square of cheesecloth flat on the counter. Place 4 cloves garlic, 1 tablespoon pickling spice and 2 bay leaves in the center of the cloth. Bring the corners of the cheesecloth together and tie with kitchen string into a bundle.
  • Time-Saving: Or you may cook the recipe on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
  • For thicker sauce: Remove the beef and vegetables from the cooker. Stir 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl until smooth. Add to the cooker and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes or until the mixture boils and thickens.

    Something's missing

    The directions reference a bouquet garnie, but it's not listed in the ingredients.

    One suggestion about cabbage

    I've used a very similar recipe for years, but I've made the following adjustment: I'll put 1/4 head of cabbage in a cooking bag, and put that in for the first 3 hrs. (I use it as "seasoning" at first) -- then I remove that, and put in the remaining 3/4 head of cabbage. When that batch of cabbage is done cooking, I say it's time to serve--and I've never been disappointed. You won't deal with over-cooked cabbage this way.

    Slow Cooked Corned Beef & Cabbage

    Made this for the first time and will be using again when I make another corned beef brisket as this was easy to do and didn't require a lot of prep time either. Kids really enjoyed all the vegetables (except for the cabbage) will have to see about not adding the cabbage until later as it was a little slimy but was still delicious.

    I agree with Mona. Wait to add the cabbage until last couple hours, otherwise it is slimy.
