Classic Corned Beef and Cabbage

(19 Votes)
3 Hr 10 Min

Nothing says St. Patrick's Day like this Classic Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe. You don't have to be Irish to enjoy a taste of fork-tender corned beef with a hearty helping of potatoes, carrots, and cabbage. Now that's what we call dinnertime goodness!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (3- to 3-1/2-pound) corned beef brisket with pickling spices
  • 8 cups water
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 green cabbage, cut into 2-inch wedges
What To Do:
  1. In a large Dutch oven over high heat, bring corned beef with pickling spices and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 2-1/2 hours, or until almost fork-tender.
  2. Add potatoes, carrots, and cabbage to corned beef and continue cooking, covered, 25 to 30 minutes, or until vegetables and corned beef are fork-tender.
  3. Place corned beef on a cutting board and slice across the grain. Serve with vegetables.

a family favorite! I occasionally add a med. size onion quartered.

what you do not have the packet of spices ???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello, Are you asking about the pickling spices? If so, you can buy the pickling spice in a bottle at the store, or you can make your own mixture by combining some cinnamon, allspice, mustard seed, ginger, coriander, and black pepper.

I made this last year it was soooo blood.Im cooking it this this is a five star recipe. You will fall in love to :)

I'm trying to find out if I can cook the corned beef the night before because I'm cooking for 50 people and I won't have enough room for everything that morning. I have to feed them at 12 noon. How would I warm it up for the dinner?

You never cook corn beef and cabbage without turnip

What do you think?I tried to reply to the person who wanted a slow cooker version but the reply button didn't work.

very good i tried

thanks but no thanks, i wanted a recipe for cooking corn beef in the crock pot.

I make this recipe in the crockpot all the time, only takes longer. Hope it helps.


I was also looking to see you you could use a crock pot too.

Yes, I cooked one last night in my crock pot. It is rectangular though so the liquid nearly covered brisket.

sounds great looking for cornbeef cooked beer.

Just use half beer and half water
