I’m definitely a fan of corned beef, even though it's a WW splurge.

Mom always makes her corned beef and cabbage on the stove top, so for many years I carried on the tradition. Another favorite preparation is this beer-braised corned beef.
But since I'm always looking for ways to make things quicker, easier and simpler, for the past few years I've been experimenting with different slow cooker corned beef and cabbage recipes instead. I'm so glad I did.

Slow Cooker Maple Mustard Glazed Corned Beef Recipe
- 3 pounds corned beef, trimmed of fat (discard the spice packet)
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1-½ tablespoons mustard, preferably the grainy kind
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 6-Quart. Spray the inside of your crockpot with nonstick cooking spray.
- Unwrap the corned beef, and discard the seasoning packet and trim as much of the fat from the meat as you can.
- In a small bowl, stir together the maple syrup and mustard. Rub this mixture all over the meat.
- Place the meat into your crockpot, and cover. (There's no need to add liquid.)
- Cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours, or until meat pulls apart easily with a fork. Let sit for 15-20 minutes before slicing.
- Cook your vegetables separately or add them to the pot around the meat. Small red potatoes, carrots, and cabbage wedges are traditional. Again, no need to add additional liquid.

This is way better than the boiled corned beef I grew up with. It also works well in the oven or on the grill. Thank you.
Why are you adding calories when you cook corned beef and all your adding is water nothing else just the packet of spices, you cook the veggies after while the meat is resting, I don't understand why you are putting a mustard sauce on te meat, it ruins the flavor
