Ingredients
  • 3 pounds of corned beef with seasoning packet
  • 1 onion
  • 4 carrots
  • 8 small-medium red potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 14.9 ounce can of Guinness beer
  • 1 small-medium head of cabbage
Instructions

  1. Dice the onion. Slice the carrot into big slices. Cut the potatoes into 4 or 6 pieces, depending on the size. Rinse the corned beef under cold water and pat dry. Place the diced onions on the bottom of the crock pot.

  2. Place the corned beef on top of the onions with the fat side down. In a small bowl, mix the yellow mustard with the seasoning packet that comes with the corned beef.

  3. Rub the mustard mixture on top of the corned beef.

  4. Place the potatoes and carrots around the corned beef. Pour the Guinness on top. Cook on LOW for 8 hours.

  5. Slice the cabbage in half, remove the core. Chop the cabbage into big wedges.
    Remove the corned beef from the crock pot and place in a dish.

  6. Add the cabbage to the crock pot with the other vegetables and sauce. Mix slightly so the cabbage gets covered. Cook the veggies on HIGH for 1 more hour.

  7. Slice the corned beef and serve when the vegetables are ready.

    In the past we always just boiled the corned beef but your recipe does make it melt in ones mouth. Thank you.

    • Sarah Koszyk, RD, MA says:

      Thanks, Phil! Cooking the corned beef in the crock pot with the Guinness gives the meat that extra flavor & it cooks the meat without you having to monitor the stove top.

    Mom made this for us last weekend. Not only was it very delicious but it was also very easy for her to prepare.

  3. Murphy says:

    Only 1 can of beer, no water or broth? This has enough liquid to cook and not dry out? Thanks!

  4. Phil says:

    We’re excited to make it according to your recipe as I was drooling while reading the instructions. Happy St. Pats!

  5. Diane says:

    Don’t have Guinness beer..can any beer do?

    • Sarah Koszyk, MA, RDN says:

      Hi Diane: You can use any beer. However, I recommend a dark beer like a Porter or Stout. Guinness is a stout so you’ll have a similar consistency and flavor.

  6. Diane says:

    Corned beef brisket tends to be salty..does the beer help to cut down on that…

    • Sarah Koszyk, MA, RDN says:

      Hi Diane: The beer doesn’t cut down a ton on the salt. It does dilute the seasonings, slightly. However, you can rinse the brisket before putting it in and not add the packet to reduce the salt content.
