Baked Corned Beef & Cabbage

Corned beef is brisket that has been pickled in spices for days, but it is often high in sodium. To help control the salt level, we use pickling spice—a blend featuring mustard seed, coriander and black pepper—to achieve a similar flavor. A medley of cabbage, potatoes and carrots rounds out the dish for a hearty, cozy meal.

Active Time:

Total Time:
2 hrs 45 mins


  • 1 (2 1/2 pound) boneless beef shoulder pot roast, trimmed

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons pickling spice, ground

  • 1 ¾ teaspoons salt

  • 1 ½ pounds Savoy or green cabbage (about 1/2 medium head), cored and cut into 2 1/2-inch chunks

  • 1 ½ pounds baby red potatoes, scrubbed and halved

  • 1 pound carrots, scrubbed and cut into 2-inch pieces

  • 1 cup unsalted beef stock

  • 1 ½ tablespoons stone-ground Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Place beef on a large sheet of heavy-duty foil. Rub evenly with oil. Sprinkle evenly with pickling spice and salt. Wrap the foil completely around the beef; place in a large roasting pan. Bake for 1 hour.

  2. Remove the pan from the oven; carefully remove the foil, allowing the drippings to fall into the pan. Nestle cabbage, potatoes and carrots in the pan around and under the beef. Drizzle stock over the vegetables. Cover the pan with foil. Return to the oven; bake until the vegetables are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of the beef registers 200°F, about 1 hour.

  3. Remove from the oven; carefully transfer the beef to a cutting board. Let stand for 10 minutes. Slice the beef thinly; serve with the vegetables and mustard. Spoon the pan drippings over the vegetables and meat, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
