Easy recipe for beautiful traditional style corned beef.


  • 1 - 2kg piece of corned beef

  • 1 cup of cider vinegar

  • 2 tbs brown sugar

  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered

  • 1 tsp nutmeg

  • 10 cloves

  • 10 peppercorns

  • Boiling water


  • 1.

    In your slow cooker pot, mix all ingredients except the onion, beef and water.

  • 2.

    Place corned beef into pot, add onion and top with boiling water to just cover the beef.

  • 3.

    Cook on high in the slow cooker for 3 hours, reducing the heat to low for another 5.5 hours.

  • 4.

    Serve sliced with white sauce and steamed veggies.


I usually put this on around 10am and it's ready for dinner by 6.30pm.
