My mom’s corned beef and cabbage recipe cooked in the crockpot is the best! It’s more of a traditional corned beef and cabbage recipe which has been passed down my from great grandmother. There isn’t really anything fancy about it but the crockpot cooks everything perfectly and the juices from the corned beef really had an extra special flavor.
Last week my mom shared her delicious chicken and dumplings recipe (which is trending on google right now) and today’s recipe happens to be another family favorite.
What is corned beef?
Corned beef is a salt-cured beef product. The term comes from the treatment of the meat with large-grained rock salt. Corned beef is very salty but definitely a welcomed dinner treat especially on St.Patrick’s day.

What to Serve with Corned Beef and Cabbage
Tradition side dishes that are served with corned beef and cabbage are carrots and potatoes but we often will add brussel sprouts for some greens as well as a side dish of risotto.
My mom seasoned with a pinch of Italian seasoning during the last our of cooking. The corned beef adds a lot of flavor so you do not typically need extra seasoning.
Crockpot corned beef by itself is always delicious as well cooked in a slow cooker or crockpot. You can always make different vegetable and rice on the side if you are not a fan of the cabbage, carrots and potatoes.
