For the corned beef

  • 3 small onions, quartered
  • 3 pounds corned beef brisket
  • 1 spice packet (it usually comes with the corned beef)
  • 4 cups beef broth (or water)

For the tacos

  • 16 soft-taco-size flour tortillas
  • 1 cup sauerkraut (I love the spicy variety!)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley


  • Place the quartered onions in a large slow cooker. Add the corned beef brisket, spice packet and beef broth.
  • Cover and cook for 5-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low until brisket is tender.
  • Remove brisket from the slow cooker and transfer to a plate or cutting board. Shred the brisket using a knife and fork. Add the shredded beef back into the slow cooker and mix together with the broth.
  • Serve corned beef in flour tortillas with sauerkraut, sour cream and chopped parsley.



To freeze: Cool the shredded beef to room temperature. Place in an airtight freezer bag, leaving about 2 inches of room at the top to allow for expansion, and freeze. It can be kept frozen for 4-6 months.
To reheat: Heat it up in medium pot on the stove or a large bowl in the microwave.
