Growing up, we ate Corned Beef and Cabbage.  A pot of corned beef and cabbage is very common in the South for dinner.  I was not a big fan of the cabbage but loved the flavorful corned beef.  Corned beef needs to be cooked low and slow for it to absorb all the different combination of ingredients that make corned beef burst with flavor.  Cooking this Crockpot Corned Beef low and slow allows it to get extremely tender.  I often talk about one benefit of cooking in a crockpot is the tantalizing smell that penetrates the entire house.

After making this Crockpot corned beef, I use it to make delicious Reuben sandwiches and amazing Corned Beef Hash.  Since Corned Beef Hash is one of my husband’s favorite foods, he is always so excited when I make this scrumptious version.

Use Your Crockpot corned beef To Make Delicious Reuben Sandwiches

If you are planning on making Reuben sandwiches, cook the corned beef 4 to 5 hours in the slow cooker.  After 4 or 5 hours on high, you will be able to slice the corned beef.  If you cook the corned beef longer about 6 to 7 hours on high,  it will fall apart.  You could use the shredded corned beef for Reuben or the amazing corned beef hash on the following page.

Homemade corned beef on a Reuben sandwich is incredibly tasty.  It is simple to make using Rye bread, Thousand Island dressing, Swiss cheese, Sauerkraut, Mayonnaise and Slow Cooker Corned Beef.

The Slow Cooker Corned Beef is so flavorful so when you add potatoes and a fried egg to it you have a mouth full of excitement.  When making this corned beef hash, be sure to allow the potatoes and corned beef enough time in the skillet to get brown or crusty.  The crusty part is the best!

This is truly my husband’s favorite breakfast.  This Corned Beef Hash includes slow cooker corned beef, cubed hash browns, onion, salt, pepper and garlic.

  1. I love this recipe, so great for Reubens and corned beef hash. I just discovered something amazing about the remnants of this recipe… I took the leftover juices from the Crock-Pot, took it up to a simmer and slowly added 32 ounces of chicken stock. I then pureed 2 onions, some carrots and 2 potatoes and added it to the soup, and it’s absolutely delectible.

  2. This is amazing. Great flavor with spices and apple juice. I
    Cooked it in crock pot for 5 hrs then in my instant pot pressure
    Cooker for an hour and it was so tender.

  4. Hi there!

    • Carrie,

      My husband love for me to fix this corned beef just so he can have some hash. He loves it with a runny egg. Thank you so much for visiting. I said a prayer today for your family. I hope your grand baby is doing well.

      • I’ve got this in the crockpot now and will serve with runny eggs to. That’s the way my hubby likes it sans the “hash” part of the recipe. He’d rather have the beef and the egg only. Can’t wait till it’s done!

          • I cooked this low and slow (10hrs) and it literally fell apart. My husband says it was the best he’s ever had and he loves corn beef hash. Wants me to always have some in the frig. He’d rather have without the potatoes too! It’s a def. keeper.
