Share recipe:


2 celery stalks (cut into 3-inch pieces)
1 small yellow onion (cut into 1-inch wedges) (root end left intact)
6 sprigs thyme (Fresh)
3 carrots (cut into 3-inch pieces)

In a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker, place celery, carrots, onion, potatoes, and thyme. Place corned beef, fat side up, on top of vegetables and sprinkle with pickling spice; add enough water to almost cover meat (4 to 6 cups). I like to add the potatoes halfway through cooking or they get kind of funky.
Cover and cook on high until corned beef is tender, 4 1/4 hours (or 8 1/2 hours on low). Arrange cabbage over corned beef, cover, and continue cooking until cabbage is tender, 25 - 45 minutes
Thinly slice corned beef against the grain and serve with vegetables, cooking liquid, and grainy mustard.
