  • 5 large red potatoes, quartered
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small head red cabbage, cut into 2-inch wedges

    Cook on Low for 5 hours 15 minutes to 7 hours 15 minutes. Add potatoes to slow cooker and cook for 45 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and set rack to center. Grease a roasting pan.

  • Cook's Note:

    If the fat layer is not caramelized on the meat after the allotted time in the oven,place the oven on broil for 2 minutes before taking the meat and potatoes out.

    Add a second corned beef if you want plenty of leftovers for hash. Add potatoes if you want plenty of leftovers for hash.

    Beef bouillon cubes can be used instead of beef stock.
