Homemade slow cooker corned beef recipe

homemade corned beef recipe

Homemade slow cooker corned beef is not only an easy dish to make, but cooking it in a slow cooker saves cash as well. Cooking it low and slow, makes this a tasty and affordable dish. We used a salt beef silverside cut from Swaledale Butchers giving us thick slices to serve with our Sunday lunch and thinner slices for sandwiches.

This dish is popular on St Patrick’s Day, but really should be an all year round dish. Perfect with potatoes of all kinds be they boiled, Hasselback, roast or Greek style potatoes for something different.
