I'm sure many of you will be enjoying the classic Irish-American dish, corned beef and cabbage, which I am sharing from the archives! So easy to make in the slow cooker, I used frozen pearl onions and parsnips instead of potatoes to make this easy-peasy!


  • 2 lbs lean corned beef brisket (all fat trimmed off)
  • 1 cup frozen pearl onions
  • 2 medium carrots (peeled and cut into chunks)
  • 2 medium parsnips (peeled and cut into chunks)
  • 1 small head cabbage (cut into 6 wedges)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/8 tsp whole peppercorns


  • In a 5-6 qt crock pot, place brisket, carrots, parsnips, pearl onions, parsley, bay leaves, peppercorns and 3 cups of water.
  • Cover and cook on high 4 hours.
  • Add cabbage, cook on high 1 hour 20 minutes more.
  • Remove meat, slice and serve with Cauliflower Puree or Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes. Enjoy!
