    Followed directions exactly,using 3 lb corned beef (In bag with juices),rinsed well and put in slow cooker on top of vegetables,covered with 6 cups water so it was almost completely covered,5 hours on high and it was too tough to eat!What did I do wrong?!So disappointed because we were really looking forward to it for 5 hours!

      Used juices from bag added no veggies.2.65lbs on high for 4 hours and 30 minutes.Sesame ginger marinade.About 8oz.Dash of worchestershire or two and a generous shot of Jack Daniels Tennessee honey.Along with the seasoning packet that came with it.Amazing!

    The meat turns out very moist but the recipe is bland.It wasn't till I was done cooking that I remembered my mom always added rosemary.I think that would make this better.

      My Nan and Mom always added a bay leave.That is what I do,no rosemary or thyme - Just giving another option depending on your tastes.

    I followed the directions to the letter in my new All-Clad,beautiful crock pot.Cooked it on low 9 hours because my cabbage was in two hours and not done.I put it in the microwave to finish up and it was still a little undercooked.I did use regular cabbage because we love it.Not sure if the Savoy cabbage would be different.Also the meat wasn't as tender as when I cook corned beef on the stove.This recipe will not be made again in the crock pot.

      Do not give up on using the AllClad slow cooker.Try again.I use my All-Clad always now to cook corned beef.2 .5 - 3 lbs cooked on low for 6 hours,let it sit under foil for 20 minutes before cutting - perfectly tender and moist every time.I buy flat cut,place fat side on top,veggies on the bottom.Cabbage goes in 40-60 minutes before end of cooking,maybe cut your cabbage in smaller pieces but alway leaving in the core while cooking.I do not rinse the corned beef as those are natural juices from the meat that add flavor.My All-Clad slow cooker is about 10 years old,

      Definitely use a bottle of LAGER & cook it 8-10 hrs so meat is tasty & falls apart

    I found a 2.85 lb."flat" corned beef brisket on sale at walmart and ended up on this site trying to figure out how exactly to cook it.I don't like cabbage so I just put baby carrots,onions,and potatoes in the bottom of the crock,put the brisket (unrinsed) on top fat side up with some baby carrots shoved down along the sides.I filled with water so it was almost to the top of the brisket and sprinkled in the little packet of spices that came with it.I also sprinkled a little dried thyme,fresh cracked black pepper,and put a bay leaf in.Cooked with the crock pot on low for a little over 8 hours and OMG was it so tender and good.Definitely cooking this again!!!

    So good!I didn't have an onion and put the cabbage on top st the beginning.Everything was done after about 6 hours on high.Added a little celery salt and a bay leaf.Delicious!Just as good as any other corned beef and cabbage that I've had before maybe even better!

    Hmmm.Kinda bland.Glad I read another recipe that recommended serving w creme fraiche which helped a lot.I cooked veggies from the beginning and they were perfect.Used tri-color bag of carrots!Pretty!Loved adding thyme.Could have used rosemary and salt.

      why would anyone want to add salt to corned beef.If you need salt on corned beef,you must not have any taste buds

    It did not have enough salt or other flavorings.Very bland.

      How can corned beef,which is soaked in a brine,not have enough salt?

    I make it exactly how the recipe is written above.I find it interesting that the video is done opposite of how she has it written.She says in recipe place veggies in crock,put corned beef on top fat side up and sprinkle with spices.Then in the video,she puts the meat in fat side down first,places veggies around and then the spices.Hmmm.Anyway,the written recipe is correct.Plus,I cut my cabbage in half,the place it cut side down on board to make wedges,much safer and uniform that way.

      I agree with MS200480!Do not cut your cabbage the way it's done in the video.Do it like the comment states above.I,too have noticed when reading one of Martha's recipes and then watching this lady in the videos she does not follow Martha's cooking instructions usually.

    I followed used written and video instructions and some reviews as a guideline.I put meat on the bottom,carrots and onions,and thyme on top.Added a bay leaf,and a sprig of very finely chopped rosemary along with seasoning packet.I poured in a bottle of beer and then water.Cooked on high for 6 hours.Halfway through I added the cabbage.An hour and a half before end of cooking time I added in whole baby potatoes.Turned our delicious.
