Slow-Cooker Ham and Cabbage Recipe

This simple and tasty recipe is one of our favorites. For St. Patrick’s day (or any time) you can easily substitute corned beef for the ham. (This is another one of the recipes in my slow-cooker cook book.)

Ham and Cabbage


1 medium-size cabbage cut into large chunks
2-3 carrots, sliced
1 onion, sliced
2-3 potatoes, cut into large cubes
2 bay leaves
4 lb smoked ham
½ cup water
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard


1. Place vegetables and bay leaves in bottom of slow-cooker.
2. Place ham on top and pour water over it.
3. Sprinkle the brown sugar and then dry mustard over ham.
4. Cover. Cook on low 8-10 hours.
5. Remove bay leaves and pour juices over ham and vegetables before serving.

  1. My daughter is CRAZY about corned beef. We went out for Paczki (Polish donuts) this morning and were talking about Lent and she wasn’t worried about sweets; etc. Just that we could still have corned beef as long as it wasn’t Friday. I’ll definitely be using this recipe 🙂

      I hope y’all like it. I’m not a corned beef fan myself, so I don’t care for the corned beef version of this recipe; my husband does though. 🙂
