8 servings


  • 1 (3 pound) corned beef brisket

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 (32 ounce) package sauerkraut

  • ¾ cup beef broth

  • 3 tablespoons brown mustard


  1. Trim excess fat from corned beef and put in a large enough slow cooker that the brisket can lay almost flat along the bottom. Place onion on top of beef.

  2. Drain sauerkraut and pile on top of onion. Mix broth and mustard together and pour over everything in the slow cooker.

  3. Cook on Low until brisket is very tender, 7 to 9 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (71 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Use bagged or jarred sauerkraut, not canned.
