Guinness Corned Beef Sliders

Growing up I was quite fond of St. Paddy’s Day.  The corned beef and cabbage part, I was not.  Since being on my own, I created something along the lines of the traditional American-Irish meal.  However, mine is better.  At least to me.  It is also a crockpot meal, so you can be at work during the day and when you return home all you need to do is eat & have a green beer. 🍀🍻

The Starting Lineup

  • 3lb+ corned beef
  • 2 small yellow onions, quartered
  • 2 carrots, quartered
  • 1 bottle of Guinness 
  • 1-2 cups water 
  • KerryGold Dubliner cheese, sliced
  • Bakery slider rolls/potato buns
  • *I like too add spicy mustard to my finished sliders.


In a large crockpot, spray with non-stick and place in your cut veggies.  They’ll act as a rack for the brisket.

Layer your corned beef over top.  Typically, it will either have the seasoning already on it or you just cut open and sprinkle the attached packet over top the meat. (In a crockpot I like to trim off some of the fat before cooking it.  Normally fat is a great thing for flavor, but a crockpot makes meats so tender due to its long cook-time).. Add in the 2cups water and the Guinness over top.

Whelp!  That’s it for the meat!  Cover that baby up and let it cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for about 5-6.

Dinner time!!!!  Serve how you please, but I like to halve potato rolls and place on a lined baking sheet.  Brush halved buns lightly with a bit of olive oil, butter or non-stick spray.  Place under the ovens broiler for just a couple minutes till golden.  Meanwhile, slice up that Irish KerryGold cheese!

Assemble the tender, hot corned beef over the toasted bun bottom and top with a slice of cheese or two and the bun top!  Serve with a cold Guinness and repeat!
