Crockpot Corned Beef

Yes, I do realize that I'm about 3 1/2 weeks late on making corned beef. But after St. Patrick's Day, our grocery store had corned beef on sale, so I jumped on that offer and decided to make it for dinner two nights ago. Corned beef is something that I usually only eat once a year (on March 17th!), but without fail, I love it every time.

This is probably the simplest recipe to ever be posted on a cooking blog and there really is nothing to it, but it is so good. Actually, anything I make in my crockpot comes out good, so this was certainly no exception. Mr. Z did not grow up eating corned beef on St. Patrick's Day like I did, so I think this was probably only the third time he's eaten it, but he really liked it too. Though, as much as I'd like to say I'll make it again soon, I probably won't. It'll probably be next March 17th before corned beef shows up around here again.

Please forgive me. Corned beef does not photograph well, at all.

Crockpot Corned Beef
Original Recipe

Corned beef (mine was about 2 lbs.)
32 oz. of beef broth

Place corned beef in the crockpot. Rub with spice packet that comes with corned beef. Pour beef broth over corned beef, then cover the rest of the way with water. Cook on high for 1 hour, then low for 4 hours. Drain, then slice corned beef.


  1. There's nothing better than slow cooked corned beef. Regardless of the date!
