This Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage is a simple way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day but it’s filled with tons of veggies and protein so it’s great for any time of year.

I’m at it again with one of my favorite cooking methods…the slow cooker. With St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching and my husband asking yearly for corned beef and cabbage I finally got around to making it. I chose the slow cooker method for obvious reason, mainly because I can throw it all in the pot and forget about it.
We’ve already been celebrating St. Patrick’s Day a bit with the kids with my Green Mac & Cheese meal (which was a big hit!) and of course I couldn’t resist making green Rice Krispies Treats.
This time I decided to make an adult focused meal, beer included! For the liquid in the slow cooker I added a bottle of beer and water. Of course you can always substitute beef broth or more water if you’d rather not cook with beer.
I actually planned to make my own corned beef (without the seasoning packet), however after thinking about it a little more I realized the quicker the better with this meal (since that’s mainly the point when using a slow cooker, right?!). And in my opinion, it’s so worth it. Not only do you not need to worry about having additional spices, but you also save time. And that of course is as win-win in my book.
