💭 Disclaimer for Diabetic Recipes
Managing your Diabetes from day to day varies from person to person based on several factors: type of diabetes, age, weight, etc.
As a general rule, your best choice will be foods lower in carbs, saturated fat, trans fat, added sugar and sodium. We recommend consulting with a Registered Dietitian about your specific situation.
The amount of Corned Beef I have listed on the recipe card is a suggestion. Locally I can only find them in 3-4 pounds weights. I've made this recipe with a 3 ½ pound corned beef brisket (flat cut) without any issues.
You can add a few more veggies if you want. As long as everything fits in your slow cooker you are good to go! Just make sure the corned beef brisket has reached an internal temperature of 145°F.
💭 Slow Cooker Tip
Try to resist as much as possible the temptation to open the lid while it's cooking as the slow cooker loses heat. By just opening the lid to stir the contents can make the internal temperature drop by 10°F to 15°F.
🥩 What is Corned Beef
Corned Beef is basically a beef brisket. The brine is a mixture of spices and salt. There are several different cuts of Corned Beef Briskets but I usually use a flat cut when making this recipe. You can always use a point cut corned beef for this recipe if that is what you prefer.
