how much depends on the size of your meat...
I just use water and sometimes a little beef broth for the liquid.
I've never made it in a crock but.. on the stove I make sure the meat is covered with the liquid. I add more if I need too as time goes on.

We do carrots, potatoes, onions and brussels sprouts in place of cabbage. If SO asks, I do turnip too.

Don't add any salt to the liquid. The meat will be salty enough without your help.

Right after St. Patrick's Day, corned beef tends to go on sale. We buy a few extras and freeze them for later. We have them in a few months but not as part of a boiled dinner. We have it with any side dishes we feel like.

So it sounds like as long as the meat is covered then I am ok. That should be easy with the crockpot. Would having the cabbage cooking the whole time be bad do you think?

It might get a little mushy.
Cabbage cooks so quickly though.. you could always add it after you get home.

I have never cooked cabbage before. Do you think maybe a half hour in the crockpot would do?

I also like Andys idea of using other things like turnip and carrots. that could be another way to go.

love the carrots.

I've cooked very little in a crock pot so... I'm not sure how long it would take to do cabbage Gb.

I always add carrots, onions and celery with the spuds and cabbage mentioned above too. I just add water with the seasoning pack that comes with the corned beef; some have said they use chicken broth. It has been so long since I cooked it in a crockpot.....does a couple of cups of water sound right?

Quarter the cabbage and it will cook in 20-30 minutes.

please help some silly german:
what do you mean with "Corned beef"? What part of the beef is it? Is it raw? (over here in D you get corned beef cooked and with jelly in small slices to put on bread...)
