Crock Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage

Last year I started cooking my corned beef in the crock pot.....I would usually just boil the heck out of it, and then cook all of the veggies separate....So needless to say it was a lot easier to do in the slow cooker, and I really like the way it turned out!!....Here is what I did....Enjoy!


 
 
INGREDIENTS
 
1 Corned Beef w/ seasoning packet (mine was 3 1/2 pounds)
12-14 small redskin potatoes (washed and scrubbed)
6 carrots (cut into chunks)
1 head cabbage (cleaned and wedged)
2 Cups chicken broth
 
 
DIRECTIONS
 
Preheat your crockpot to High
(turn to Low after everything is added)
 
clean potatoes and add to bottom of crockpot ,,,I used enough to cover bottom
then add chunked carrots
pour chicken broth over vegetables and the lay the corned beef
on top with the seasoning packet poured on top
 
Cook on Low 9-10 Hours or High 6-7 Hours (I have cooked oh high before for 8 hours and it was fine)
then add cabbage wedges the last 2 hours of cooking
When done, transfer everything to a large platter slice corned beef against the grain and enjoy!
(this fed 6 people and we could have fed 2 more!)
 
**NOTE**
The last time I made Corned Beef in the Crock Pot I bought a brand I really like (below)
It stated it was supreme trimmed and flat cut...I highly suggest this cut if you can find it....It was a great texture and not stringy or tough
 
I cooked it on high for 3 hours and then turned to low the rest of the time about 6-7 hours
When done I cut against the grain and this is what it looked like
Also it did not come with a spice packet so I added Pickling spice on top...
I also just put a layer of whole carrots on the bottom of pot and laid the corned beef on top. I cooked the rest of the veggies separately
Here is what it looked like
