Diabetic Corned Beef Recipe – And Cabbage Too!
||7 hours, 10 minutes|
Here is my diabetic corned beef recipe. I love corned beef and cabbage, but the dish is a difficult one to make healthy. The big problem is that when the beef is corned, it takes on a massive amount of salt. I mean a truly ridiculous amount. There really isn’t a whole lot you can do about it.
So, if you are on a low sodium diet, you may want to check out some of the other slow cooker recipes on this site.
One major change I did to this recipe is that I eliminated the potatoes and substituted rutabaga. I know all you traditionalists out there are going to be calling the change sacrilege. How can you possibly have a corn beef and cabbage recipe without potatoes? Just try it. You may actually like it.
- 1.5lb Corned Beef
- 1 Medium Onion
- 1lb Carrots
- 3 cups Water
- 3 cloves Garlic
- 6 cups Rutabaga (Diced)
- 1 head Cabbage

||Dice the onion and rutabaga. Mince garlic. Put onion, rutabaga, garlic and carrots in bottom of the crock pot. |
||Put the beef on top of the vegetables. |
||Cut the cabbage in quarters. Put on top of the beef. Add all other ingredients. |
||Set the slow cooker to low and cook for 7-8 hours. Your cooking time may vary, so stop cooking when the meat and veggies are tender. |
