The secret to a hearty meal is to keep it simple. This corned beef recipe only has 4 ingredients, but by allowing the corned beef brisket to simmer for up to 3 hours and 30 minutes with onion, garlic and spices, you'll end up with a juicy, tender corned beef. Once it's done cooking, finish off your Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe by boiling the cabbage and serving it together for a classic meal that satisfies.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Corned beef is beef brisket that has been cured in brine to give it a distinct flavor; it should not be confused with the plain cut of meat called “brisket.” Corned beef is sold in a sealed plastic bag with the brine. Since the brine contains plenty of salt, none is added to the recipe.
  • tip 2
    For a New England Boiled Dinner, omit 1 medium onion. Decrease simmer time of beef in step 2 to 2 hours. Skim fat from broth. Add 6 small onions, 6 medium carrots (cut in half), 3 medium potatoes (peeled and cut in half) and, if desired, 3 turnips (peeled and cut into cubes) to broth. Cover; simmer 20 minutes. Remove beef to warm platter; keep warm. Add cabbage to broth and vegetables. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • tip 3
    Slow Cooker Directions: Spray 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In slow cooker, place trimmed beef with juices and spices from package. Add enough cold water just to cover beef. Add onion and garlic; top with cabbage. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until beef and cabbage are tender.
