"This is a recipe from "The Best Slow Cooker Cookbook Ever". I made this recipe for an annual St. Patrick's Day party a few years ago, and we all loved it! It was so easy to put together and throw in the crock pot. The meat was tender and mildly flavored. It was delicious, and it came out beautifully. I used a 3 pound roast, and kept it on high for 8 hours. Took it out, and let it rest for for 15 minutes, then sliced on the diagonal using my electric knife, and it was soooooooo tender and juicy. I didn't add the potatoes or carrots, as I made Colcannon to go with it."

I am an accomplished cook but corned beef NEVER came out soft and succulent. I almost gave up making corned beef at all. I came upon this recipe and decided to give it one more shot My corned beef turned out great! I treasure this recipe. Thank you so much!!!! Sherrie

So easy and so delicious too! I made as part of my dinner for St. Patrick's day, omitting the potatoes because I made Colcannon instead. The meat was so flavorful with these ingredients. I will make this again most certainly!

We actually celebrated St. Patrick's Day yesterday when all my family was here. It turned out well and very tasty. The beef was tender and the cabbage was done and delicious! Served with Irish Soda Bread and Sue Lau's, and I just cooked the cabbage with the corned beef, no potatoes. Delicious meal all the way around!

Very good and easy meal for St. Pat's Day. I added carrots to the crockpot when I added the cabbage but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!

I wanted something special for my first year with my new husband for St Patrick's Day. We invited friends over to join in for the festivities and had and Irish meal of corned beef and cabbage that was really tender and delicious straight from the crockpot. I added carrots, potatoes and turnip in with the beef and it made a delicious full meal for us. We had it with your Colcannon and Blarney Blaster ice cream drink and it was a meal fit for a Leprechaun! My friends were so impressed with my efforts to celebrate with them and my husband was beaming from ear to ear to think I actually pulled it off. With your help I did LBK!
