It’s not luck; it’s just an amazing Irish recipe. With this in the slow cooker by sunrise, you can be sure to fill seats at the dinner table by sundown. —Heather Parraz, Rochester, Washington

  • 6 medium red potatoes, quartered

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons whole peppercorns
  • 4 cups water


  1. In a 6-qt. slow cooker, combine the potatoes, carrots and onion. Add briskets (discard spice packets from corned beef or save for another use). Sprinkle the brown sugar, sugar, coriander and peppercorns over meat. Pour water over top.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 9-11 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender.
  3. Remove meat and vegetables to a serving platter. Thinly slice 1 brisket across the grain and serve with vegetables. Save the remaining brisket for another use.
