Corned Beef, Cabbage on The 21 Day Fix!

St. Patricks Day is upon us and that means CORNED BEEF & Cabbage - one of my very favorite meals - while corned beef is not on the the list of approved foods, if you make it and use your containers, you can still enjoy! I consider this a cheat meal, and while it’s a lean cut, Corned Beef does have A LOT of sodium in it. So if you are planning on enjoying this meal - make sure you drink lots of water and get your workout in!!!


1 piece of LEAN corned Beef - plus pickling spice packet

Organic Red Potatoes cleaned and left whole. If large, than slice in half.

1 whole cabbage, trimmed & quartered. I recommend leaving the core intact this will hold the cabbage together

3 carrots, cut into 3-inch pieces

6 sprigs thyme

1 Package Whole Carrots - Cleaned & ends removed (Left Whole or Cut in Half)

3-4 medium sized yellow onions. Skin peeled & left whole

In a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker, 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). Cover and cook on high until corned beef is tender, 4 1/4 hours (or 8 1/2 hours on low).


  • Trim any remaining fat and place it fat side down

  • Look for the grain pattern of the meat. This is the pattern of visible long muscle fibers that run parallel to each other

  • On a slight angle, thinly slice your meat AGAINST the grain.

**Slicing against the grain allows you to cut muscle fibers so that they are very short and no longer touch.

**If you leave muscle fibers long and intact, they remain strong and very hard to chew.
