This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s for layering and choosing a temperature.

Variation: Let there be veggies! Cut a small head of cabbage into 6 wedges, and place on top of the corned beef in the slow cooker for a more filling meal.
