Slow Cooker Corned Beef Stew


Slow Cooker Corned Beef Stew

Using up my frozen Corned Beef leftovers from St. Patrick’s Day I made a simple stew in the slow cooker.  It was nice to come home to the smell of corned beef filing the house and knowing with a nice loaf of crusty bread and some butter dinner would be ready!

Verdict:

Corned beef is a bit salty normally so the soup was a tiny bit too salty but when we talked about how that is the flavor of the corned beef we all decided it was as it should be. Both of my Corned Beef loving kids had two bowls and quickly claimed the leftovers for lunch the next day. To us that means this is a winner!

I served this with a loaf of crusty bread and some butter for dipping in the broth.  For my mostly gluten-free son the best part was that with some gluten-free bread this meal was gluten-free!

    I did not cook a corned beef for St. Patty’s Day so no leftovers. This makes me want to go buy one just to make this stew. I love coming home to dinner cooking itself in the crockpot!

      I buy 4-5 when they are on sale near St. Patrick’s Day to throw in the freezer and make throughout the year. We LOVE Corned Beef.

      It was good! The whole thing had that salty, tang to it from the Corned beef which made the bread for dipping taste so good.

      1. Oh I can only imagine! I’m a huge fan of corned beef & buy several during St Paddy’s day. I believe I may need to pull one out of the freezer now 🙂
