With its elegant flavor and lovely appearance, you'd never guess how easy it is to prepare this traditional St. Patrick's Day favorite. Thanks to the slow-cooker, it comes together effortlessly. —Susan F. Cepeda, M. Lakes, Florida


  • 3/4 pound fingerling potatoes, cut in half
  • 2 cups fresh baby carrots
  • 2 medium onions, cut into wedges
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups white wine or beef broth
  • 1 corned beef brisket with spice packet (3 to 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup stone-ground mustard
  • 1 small head cabbage, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained


  1. In a 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker, combine the potatoes, carrots, onions and garlic. Pour wine over vegetables. Cut brisket in half. Spread with mustard; place over vegetables (discard spice packet from corned beef or save for another use).
  2. Cover and cook on low until meat and vegetables are tender, 8-10 hours, adding cabbage and sauerkraut during the last hour of cooking. Serve beef with vegetables.
