Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage Ingredients
- Corned Beef Brisket
- 1 Head of Cabbage
- 1/4 Cup of Butter or Margarine
- 1/2 Cup Chicken Stock
First, rinse your head of cabbage and cut into quarters.
Then remove the core from each cabbage quarter.
Next, slice each cabbage quarter down the length so that you have small strips of fresh cabbage and set aside in a bowl.
Place your corned beef brisket in your Crock Pot, fat side down.
Then top the brisket with the seasoning packet included.
Next, top the brisket with all of your cut up cabbage slices.
- This will look like a lot but the cabbage will cook down a lot.
Add butter to the top of the cabbage. Don’t worry about mixing it in.
Lastly, pour your chicken stock over the top of the cabbage, spreading around where you pour it.
Add the lid to your Crock Pot and turn on high heat.
Cook for 6 hours on high.
- Check your corned beef and cabbage 1 hour before serving. If your cabbage is still under-cooked, stir the mixture thoroughly, return the lid, and continue cooking the rest of the time.
This is great on its own but you can also serve it with fried potatoes for crunch or mashed potatoes for creamy. Both will taste delicious but we prefer the crunch of crispy fried potatoes. Carrots are also a great way to add additional vegetables to the meal but we usually skip them.
This Crock Pot corned beef and cabbage dinner is the most delicious and easy recipe you’ll ever eat. Even the kiddos love when we make this dish, which is high praise coming from broccoli Nazis.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
