Thank you for stopping by to read about this incredibly tasty SLOW COOKER CORNED BEEF.   

Are you looking to serve corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day?  Do you need a good recipe?  I am going to teach you how to make a fantastic SLOW COOKER CORNED BEEF.

This post includes not only a corned beef recipe but a delicious Corned Beef & Hash Recipe plus a fabulous Reuben sandwich.  Continue reading to see all three recipes.



Cooking SLOW COOKER CORNED BEEF low and slow also allows it to get incredibly tender and just falls apart.

The apple juice, brown sugar, mustard, Thyme, Cajun seasoning, allspice, cumin, celery seed, and garlic powder make this corned beef have the best flavor.



Growing up, we ate Corned Beef and Cabbage. 

A pot of corned beef and cabbage is 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 incredibly 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.AMAZING SLOW COOKER CORNED BEEF TO TRY RIGHT NOW

Crock Pot Corned Beef

Prep Time5 hrs 20 mins
Cook Time5 hrs 20 mins
Course: entree
Cuisine: American
Author: Diane @Recipes for our Daily Bread


  • 3 to 4 pounds corned beef brisket
  • One large onion diced
  • 32 ounces of apple juice or enough to cover the top of the brisket
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 -1/2 TB prepared mustard
  • 2 TB peppercorn
  • 2 TB dried Thyme
  • 1 TB Cajun seasoning
  • One tsp allspice
  • One tsp cumin
  • And One tsp celery seed
  • Plus One tsp garlic powder


  • Place the beef brisket in the crock-pot and add onion, apple juice, brown sugar, mustard and all the spices.
  • Cook on high 4 to 5 hours if you are planning on slicing it.
  • If you want it to shred easily or fall apart, cook on high for 6 to 7 hours or 10 to 12 hours on low. Remove from the crockpot and slice or shred for the Reuben sandwiches and the Corned Beef Hash.
  • My pictures show the corned beef both sliced and shredded.
  • My family likes me to cook the brisket until it shreds easily for both the Reubens and the Hash.

Use Your SLOW COOKER 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 fantastic corned beef hash on the following page.

How To Make Reuben Sandwich?

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

Add a tablespoon of mayonnaise to the outside of both pieces of bread and grill the Reuben sandwich in a skillet until golden brown and the cheese is gooey.   You could also bake it in the oven until golden brown.


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!

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

  3. Hi there!
    I’m wondering approximately how many Reubens this recipe makes? I have to make dinner for a group coming up and am wondering how to plan if I make this.

    • Sarah,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. I normally use a 3-pound corned beef and use about 4 ounces of beef per person. A 3-pound roast will feed about 12 people.
      I hope this helps. This corned beef is extremely delicious. I hope you get a chance to make it.
      Thank you for all your support. I hope you will continue to visit my blog and share it on social media.
      If you ever had any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

  4. mustard, Thyme, Cajun seasoning, apple juice and others things are going to enhance the taste, I haven’t tried it yet but I’m confirm that the coming weekend is gonna be tastier day.

    • 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.
      Diane Roark

      • 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!

        • Diane,

          I am so glad you found this cornbeef recipe. It is really delicious especially with a runny egg. If I am cooking hash using this recipe, I look it until the cornbeef completely falls apart. I like my falling apart instead of slicing it.

          Many blessings and I hope you enjoy it.
          Diane Raork

          • 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.

    • Maria, Thank you very much for your encouragement and for stopping by and leaving me a comment. Blessings always, Diane
