Food Recipes Classic Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage 2.7 (154) 2 Reviews Inexpensive, easy to cook, and delightfully tender and satisfying, Corned Beef and Cabbage prove a pleasing meal any time—not just on St. Patrick's Day. At the grocery, look for corned beef brisket. In some cases, the meat will come with a spice packet, which you'll add to the slow cooker. But some brands cure the meat before packaging; if it's labeled as "corned," you're set. We developed a recipe that cooks over 7 or 8 hours on low but is also ready after 4 to 5 hours of cooking on high, for quicker preparation, or even a warming Sunday supper.
