Personally, I prefer to use fresh corned beef, so I usually make some the day before in the slow cooker. However, if you don’t mind then the tinned meat works just as well so feel free to pick whatever best suits your needs. You can find tinned corned beef at pretty much any good supermarket or even online at places like Amazon.

If you want to have some eggs with this then simply fry or poach some just before you go to serve the food. I would avoid adding the eggs directly into the slow cooker as they will likely overcook and not be very nice.

The leftovers of this will reheat nicely so make sure you keep them, just store in the fridge until required then heat in the microwave or a preheated oven. If you prefer, you can also freeze the leftovers and simply reheat when you need them.

  • There are a ton of variations that you can do for this recipe such as adding baked beans or tinned crushed tomatoes. Just remember the more fluid you add, the more “stew-like” this dish will become.
  • Personally, I prefer to use fresh parsley for this dish, but you can use dried if you don’t have any available. You don’t need to adjust the amount, just substitute with the chosen type of parsley.

    Can I substitute cloves instead of peppercorns cooking slow cooked corn beef.

    1. Gus on

      Hi Barry,

      I do not suggest replacing the peppercorns with cloves as they’re quite different flavors. You can try using some ground pepper instead.

  2. Jennifer on

    If using fresh corned beef, do you cook that separately prior to making the dish? Or do you add this raw and then it cooks with the potatoes during the 6-8 hours in the crock pot?

    1. Gus on

      Yes, I cooked it following our corned beef recipe before using it in this recipe. With that said, I can’t see why you couldn’t cook it from raw with the potatoes. Six to eight hours should be long enough, just unsure how tender it will be.

  3. Tara on

    Love this recipe but is there a quick way of doing this without a slow cooker? Like in under an hour?

    I gave this recipe 5 / 5

      You can cook it in a frying pan, but you may need to parboil the potatoes to ensure that they cooked properly.
