Slow Cooker Crock Pot Guinness Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe

I am dreaming of returning to Ireland!  The closer it gets to St. Patrick’s Day the more I want to be on a plane back to Dublin. We fell madly deeply in love with Ireland while we were there.  Oh my goodness the people, the sites, the food, the Guinness was all so amazing. We did learn while we were in Ireland that Corned Beef and Cabbage is not really something that is served in Ireland.  Even knowing this I had to make up a Crock Pot Guinness Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe.  It just seemed like the thing to do.

When I think of St. Patrick’s Day I always think of Corned Beef and Cabbage oh and Guinness so why not combine them into one heavenly dish.

This is my go-to recipe for corned beef. But I don’t wait until St. Patrick’s day, I love it, so I make it whenever I want. Of course… St Patrick’s day, it’s a requirement. The only thing I do different is that I use the entire bottle of Guinness and leave 1 cup of water out. Comes out perfect every time. Thanks for giving me this amazing version.

Hi, It is really up to you how big of portions you serve. We are able to serve quite a few meals off of this recipe.

Lovely recipe variation thank you. I can assure you it is most definitely an Irish dish originating in Ireland. Unusual that you didn’t stumble across it while visiting as relatives inform me it is in almost every pub in Dublin. I have nana’s recipe and don’t usually try anything else but yours was lovely. Thank you.

Hi Betsy, some times I am not really sure how many it serves. There are only 2 of us so I can judge it only off of how long it lasts here in our house.

Hi, I have always done it on high. the meat comes out super tender along with the potatoes. There is enough juice in the crock pot that it does not dry out.

I’ve never made corned beef before and didn’t realize it could go in the crock pot! I bet this would be a hit at our house!

I really should make something like this for St. Patty’s Day. I can’t believe I’ve never tried corned beef before. Looks tasty!

My mom makes this every year… and I LOVE the smell of it cooking! It’s not St. Patty’s day without it!

I have never had corned beef and I am a tiny bit Irish, so I should probably change that! Looks like a great recipe!!

Yummm.. this looks delicious.. I love Corned beef and cabbage, this will be our recipe to try this weekend, thanks for sharing you sure made it look easy

I think March is the only time of year where I even think to eat corned beef and cabbage. I haven’t had it forever! I like the ease of making it in the crockpot.

I so wish I had this cookinfg for super tonight!! This looks beyond tasty!!!! I am gonna have to make this ASAP! Thanks for the awesome recipe!!

I made mine in the crockpot this year too and it was crazy tender and delicious! Next time I’ll add cabbage like you. 🙂

Can you believe that I’ve never had corned beef before? I didn’t even realize it was something that you could make in a crock pot, I thought it only came in a can!

This looks absolutely delicious! We love corned beef, and always use the leftovers to make a corned beef hash the next day.

I’d love to go to Ireland. I’ve been to London and Paris, but still would like to visit Wales, Scotland and Ireland… One day!

Thanks for sharing this timely recipe. I need to pull out my crockpot!

This looks sooo good! and thanks for all the crock pot recipes, I could always use new ones, I love my crock pot!
