Expert Tips

  • Fun fact: corned beef doesn’t have anything to do with corn at all! Corned beef is brined with large balls of salt, also known as “corns.”
  • This slow-cooker corned beef can be served traditionally with a side of cabbage and vegetables, but also tastes great when sliced and eaten on a sandwich. Just don’t forget to dress in leftover broth before eating for maximum flavor!
  • You can slow-cook the corned beef in chicken stock if desired, but if you’re trying to be mindful of your sodium intake, choose a low-sodium stock or substitute with water instead.
