Roasted Corned Beef and Cabbage with Carrots, Potatoes & Horseradish Cream Sauce

Tested & Perfected Recipes

Corned beef and cabbage is traditionally boiled but I prefer to roast it in the oven. I also toss the vegetables in horseradish-butter to amp up the flavor. It makes ALL the difference.

corned beef with cabbage

Corned beef and cabbage, the traditional Irish-American dish of salt-cured brisket with vegetables, is traditionally boiled on the stovetop in a single large pot. I much prefer to slow-roast the meat and vegetables separately in the oven — and, to amp up the flavor, I toss the vegetables in a horseradish-spiked butter sauce before roasting.

These tweaks to the traditional cooking method make ALL the difference. The corned beef emerges from the oven tender and subtly spiced, and the bronzed veggies are near impossible to resist eating straight from the pan (and will have you thinking, “What else can I roast in horseradish-butter?”).

This corned beef and cabbage recipe takes three hours to cook, but it’s almost entirely hands-off. St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to make it, when corned beef briskets are plentiful and on sale.

What you’ll need to make Corned Beef and Cabbage

ingredients for corned beef and cabbage

Look for corned beef that is labeled flat-cut. If it’s not clear based on the packaging, just ask your butcher to point you in the right direction.  While you may be tempted, do not trim the fat from the corned beef before starting the recipe — you’ll do that after it’s cooked.

How to make Corned Beef and Cabbage

Begin by rinsing the meat under cold running water. This will rid the meat of some of the saltiness. Place the corned beef fat side up in a large roasting pan.

Pour about 1/8 inch water around the corned beef. Sprinkle the contents of the seasoning packet into the water around the meat. Cover the pan tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil and roast on the middle rack for 3 hours.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the melted butter, horseradish, salt, and pepper.

Mix well.

Place the carrots, potatoes and cabbage side by side on a rimmed baking sheet (do not line the pan with foil; the potatoes will stick). Drizzle the horseradish-butter mixture over the veggies.

Toss with a spatula to coat all of the vegetables evenly, keeping the vegetables separate. Turn the potatoes so that they are cut side down (they’ll get much crispier that way).

After the corned beef has roasted for 1 hour and 30 minutes, place the pan of vegetables on the bottom rack of the oven. Roast the vegetables and continue cooking the corned beef for 1 hour and 30 minutes more, until both the meat and vegetables are tender. Check on the veggies occasionally to be sure they are browning evenly.

Remove the meat from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Let cool slightly, until cool enough to handle.

Cut off the layer of fat on top of the corned beef and discard. Slice the meat against, or perpendicular to, the grain into 1/4-inch slices.

Servings: 6 - 8
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 3 Hours
Total Time: 3 Hours 20 Minutes

Ingredients

For the Corned Beef and Vegetables

  • 1 (4-lb) flat-cut corned beef with seasoning packet (do not trim the fat)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 6 medium carrots, cut into 2-in chunks
  • 1-1/4 lb small gold potatoes (about 2.5" in diameter), halved
  • 1 very small green cabbage, cored and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley, for garnish (optional)

For the Horseradish Cream Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish, plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven the 325°F. Set one oven rack in the middle position and another in the bottom position.
  2. Rinse the corned beef several times under running cold water. (No need to dry it.)
  3. Place the corned beef fat side up in a large roasting pan (you'll trim the fat after the meat is cooked). Pour about 1/8 inch water around the meat. Sprinkle the contents of the seasoning packet into the water around the corned beef. Cover the pan tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil and roast on the middle rack for 3 hours.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, horseradish, salt and pepper.
  5. Place the carrots, potatoes and cabbage side by side on a rimmed baking sheet (do not line the pan with foil; the potatoes will stick). Drizzle the horseradish-butter mixture over the veggies and toss with a spatula to coat all of the vegetables evenly, keeping the vegetables separate. Turn the potatoes so that they are cut side down (they'll get crispier that way).
  6. After the corned beef has roasted for 1 hour and 30 minutes, place the pan of vegetables on the bottom rack of the oven. Roast the vegetables and continue cooking the corned beef for 1 hour and 30 minutes more, until both the meat and vegetables are tender. Check on the veggies occasionally to be sure they are browning evenly. (The cabbage will brown first, so give it a toss when the bottom pieces look golden. The potatoes and carrots may need to be turned, but only if they are nicely browned on the bottom before the cook time is up.)
  7. Transfer the corned beef to a cutting board and let sit until cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes. Cut off the layer of fat on top of the corned beef and discard. Slice the meat against (or perpendicular to) the grain into 1/4-inch slices. Arrange the meat on a platter with the roasted vegetables and sprinkle with parsley, if desired. Serve with the horseradish cream sauce.

For the Horseradish Cream Sauce

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more horseradish to taste, if desired.
  2. Note: You won't use the whole head of cabbage; just use enough to cover 1/3 of the sheet pan.
  3. Note: The nutritional information does not include the horseradish cream sauce.

Reviews & Comments

  • Have made this recipe twice (1 with and 1 w/o creamy horseradish sauce) and it is definitely a keeper! Honestly for us the best part is the cabbage….OMG! Rest of veggies are delicious, but we have now started making a double batch of cabbage as well as stand alone for side with other dishes.
    Love that recipe allows for cooking of all ingredients at same temperature!
    Corned beef is very flavorful (not too salty) and fork tender.
    Only challenge I have at times is adjusting cook time as we tend to get a smaller cut (2lb) since it is just for 2.

  • Hi Jenn, Thank you for doing what you do! Your site is my first go-to for recipes. And I return over and over again.

    My question is if I am using a smaller piece of meat — 2.5 pounds instead of 4 — should cooking time be adjusted down, and if so, by how much?

  • My stove is old and the burners simply do not hold a simmer well. So, I am grateful for an alternate way to cook corned beef. (I’ve also used a slow cooker in past, but sometimes the piece of meat is too big for my cooker.) I roasted some corned beef today for Easter dinner. Served it with your asparagus/peas risotto. Delicious! Four stars because I didn’t make the whole recipe as written.

  • I made this for St. Patrick’s Day (no surprise there!) it was a great recipe. I added a little more horseradish than it calls for when making the veggies and sauce, as I wanted a little extra punch of flavor. If you aren’t big on strong flavors, the recommended amount would be perfect. Roasting the corned beef really gave it a nice, robust flavor, but kept it very moist. I like the addition of flavor by adding some of the sauce to it. This will be my go to recipe each year…. and maybe a few other times besides the holiday :). The horseradish butter will definitely be making an appearance on some veggies in the future!

  • Wow Wee! What a wonderful way to cook corned beef . So used to the boring slow cooker corned beef , which will remain only in the past! From now on this is my only corned beef recipe. The corned beef was so flavorful and juicy and the vegetables were perfectly seasoned. I did add rutabagas to the other veggies . Thank you for a perfect recipe!

  • This recipe is worth it just for the vegetables! They were seriously so good. My only complaint is that the cabbage shrinks a ton when it roasts, and it was so good there was not nearly enough. Next time I will do a pan of carrots and potatoes, and a separate pan of cabbage. The meat was fine, but I really didn’t notice a big difference between this one and the traditional boiled method. But again, those veggies were sooooo good!

  • I absolutely loved the butter horseradish roasted vegetables. I plan on using that all year round. Also the sour cream horseradish sauce for the corned beef was excellent and I used it as a dip for a snack. I shared with my neighbors in the apartment building I live in. The corned beef was tender and cooked to perfection. I love the recipes on this website because they turn out exactly as Jenn says they will.

  • In the past, I’ve cooked corned beef in a crock pot and thought that was the best way. Boy, was I wrong. This is so easy and so tasty. I prepared it on St. Patrick’s Day for friends who had owned an Irish Bar. They couldn’t stop raving about it. The vegetables roasted in horseradish butter are so much better than cooking in a crock pot. The horseradish cream sauce is divine. I used an old blue roaster and the corned beef was perfect. The only substitution I made was red potatoes because I had bought them before I saw this recipe. They cook a little quicker so I just kept an eye on them. Thank you Jenn!

  • We LOOOOVED this recipe! I usually do the crock pot route but this had such better flavor and I didn’t feel as though it was swimming in fatty juices. We actually did 3 large briskets (2 point and one flat) in a Super Big foil pan bc we were having family over and my husband loves leftovers for Reuben sandwiches. It took 4.5 hours but everything came out delicious! I did the carrots and cabbage on a side cookie sheet for the last hour, and made mashed potatoes to go with … served with some sour dough bread, soda bread and Kerrygold butter – to die for! Thanks again for the recipe and Happy St Patrick’s Day!

  • I’ve made this twice now and it is so delicious! This most recent time though I soaked the brisket for a few hours in water before cooking it and reduced the salt by a third for the veggies because I wanted a slightly less salty dish. I am still perplexed though as to why my veggies took almost 2.5 hours to cook instead of the 1.5 mentioned on here and was wondering if you had any ideas suggestions on what to do different next time?

  • As always a wonderful recipe, Jenn, thank you. Followed the recipe exactly as written, except for a change in method with the veggies. I chopped the carrots first and tossed them in a bowl with 1/3 of the butter horseradish sauce, before placing them on the cooking sheet. Followed with the potatoes tossed with 1/3/sauce and and then lastly the cabbage. I thought it made it easier than placing them on the sheet together, tossing them with the sauce, and trying to keep them apart. Dessert was your recipe for flourless chocolate cake with meringue topping.

The corned beef wasn’t overwhelmingly salty like some recipes and everything just tasted so darn good. Don’t skip the horseradish cream – divine. The only “flaw” was a lack of veggies – we’ll definitely double it next time to serve 6. Thank you so much Jenn! We followed it with your Bailey’s brownies – always a hit. This was pretty minimal effort for tasting so much better than boiling it.

    My second pan was at normal temp for roasting veggies so they are crisp potatoes and decent carrots.
    The recipe is good – the corned beef I turned up to 350 from the beginning – so it is perfect.

  • Meat came out tender but salty. Corned beef is salty but I guess boiling removes some salt where roasting did not. The horseradish butter was way too salty! I questioned the addition of 1-1/2 tsp of salt but followed the recipe. My cabbage came out crispy like a potato chip and very very salty. I decided not to serve to my guests!
    2 pans of vegetable would be better. The meat cooks down. I would add the cabbage to the roasting pan with the meat if I try again. I did not yet try the creme sauce. Maybe this will make the difference.

  • Excellent. I cheated, my grocery store didn’t have a corned beef brisket that I wanted, so I asked the deli department to cut me a few slices of corned beef extra thick. I prepared and cooked the vegetables as instructed until almost done, then added the slices of corned beef over the top of vegetables w/some of the horseradish butter to melt over the slices of beef as it heated. The flavor from the corned beef and butter melded down on top of the vegetables. It was all just delicious! Quick, easy, and yum.

  • Hi, Jenn:

    To those who think corned beef is too salty, I got a tip years ago that works. Boil the corned beef in water for around 20 – 30 minutes. Wait till the salt comes to the top then toss the water and cook in fresh water. Also, I buy pickling spice for the seasoning. I place the spices in cheesecloth, tie it up in a ball and toss in water. That way the spices don’t cling to the meat and you get the same flavor.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone.

  • We really enjoyed the roasted veggies and the sour cream sauce. I did use less than half the salt the recipe called for and it was just right. Next time I’d skip the cabbage and go with Brussels sprouts. We didn’t enjoy the corned beef. It was too salty to eat (and I rinsed very thoroughly). I’m hoping it will be OK in corned beef hash. Next time I’ll go with the boiled corn beef and the roasted veggies.

And every single dish has been a success/added to rotation. Congratulations on the book! As a fellow DC resident, looking forward to your culinary school in the area one day, maybe. 🙂

  • Dear Jenn, I have two questions about roasting the corned beef. If using salted butter, by how much should the salt be reduced? Is there any advantage or disadvantage to using broth instead of water in the roasting pan?

    • — Mary Wilson on March 14, 2019
    • Reply
    • Hi Mary, One stick of salted butter has about 1/4 tsp salt so I’d reduce it by 1/8 tsp. If you’d like to use broth, be sure to use one that is unsalted. Corned beef is very salty and broth would make it saltier. Hope that helps!

    • This is such a good and easy recipe. I used water, per your reply. I had already bought small red potatoes and they were fine substitutes for yellow. I did put the roast atop thin onion slices. My friends said it was the best meal they’ve had in weeks. Thank you for making me look good.

    • Hi Mary, I’m not familiar with a round cut of corned beef, but the point cut has more fat/marbling. I definitely prefer the flat cut as it’s leaner but still plenty tender. Hope that helps!

  • Recently discovered your site and love your recipes. I want to make this corned beef and cabbage (which I’ve never done before). Because of time constraints, if I want to roast the corned beef the day before, how would I go about heating it up the next day. I envision letting it cool, removing the fat as per your recipe. Then would I slice it cold? How would I then reheat it? In the roasting liquid? Or what do you suggest? Thanks so much for your wonderful instructions and pictures. They are so helpful.

  • I’ve been waiting for corned beef to become available at Costco so I could make this again. Best method I’ve found so far, it comes out moist and tender! I made one small change. I’ve been using Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage (the same only different?) I can buy just the amount of sprouts that we need and don’t waste the rest of the cabbage which I usually fail to use.

  • I made this for St. Patrick’s Day this year and is was phenomenal. The horseradish butter and sauce really make the dish. I made one small modification and added a bottle and a half of Guinness to roast my corned beef in for extra flavor. The beef was so tender and full of flavor (and I don’t even like beef!). I won’t use any other recipes at St. Patrick’s Day now. This one is on the “hit” list. All of my family members asked for a copy of the recipe.

    This recipe’s method of cooking vegetables was lovely, and I might make those again, but an hour and a half is way too long. Barely an hour had the veggies bordering on too soft, but still very tasty. All in all, I don’t think this recipe meets the high bar Jenn sets with this wonderful site!

Even though I prepped my vegetables early, they were cold from the refrigerator and the butter solidified on them right away. Still tasted great. The horseradish sauce was to die for. One question – if I corn my own beef will it be less salty. Not all store bought brands are created equal even though I rinsed mine in lots of cold water.

Meat was tender and delicious and the cream sauce was outstanding! The only thing I had to adjust was the cooking time of the veggies. They were soft but not browned after the hour and a half so I put them back in for 20 min at 425 and they were perfect! Just enough time for the meat to rest and it was still piping hot.

      • Thanks for the reply. Yes, I used a corned beef brisket (I am from Texas and know brisket!) I followed the directions: I rinsed it, put it fat side up, sprinkled seasoning packet on the water. The only difference was that I do not have a broiler/roasting pan and used a glass dish with smooth sides. When I checked on the roast after an hour, it had expanded and pushed the foil off. I took it out and ended up wrapping the entire dish like a foil packet. A total of 5 hours later, I wrote my review. I threw the brisket in the crockpot the next day and it was great. Along with more veggies and the horseradish cream.

        This is the first dish off your site that hasn’t been wonderful. Roasting the meat was what attracted me to this recipe, but I would rather put it in the crockpot next time because that frees up my oven for two pans of veggies – one is definitely not enough!

  • Don’t be fooled by the delicious looking photos. As I discovered, there is a reason to boil, not roast, cabbage. When roasted, cabbage becomes so tough, it is barely edible. Steaming the corn beef is basically the same as boiling it, except it takes longer. The horseradish sauce is mediocre. Sorry to be so negative, I just want to prevent others from wasting 3 hours making this recipe.

    • I am a big fan of your recipes. . . . but this one did not rise to the excellence I have come to expect. I love roasted vegetables, but think cabbage may be an exception. I loved the horseradish/butter combination, but the amount specified did not really suffice. The potatoes were great, the carrots were good, the cabbage not so much. Nor did the vegetables cook in a timely fashion. I added some water to the pan to help the cabbage along. I will keep the horseradish/butter in mind for other veggie roasts. I keep wondering if there was something I missed but rereading the recipe, I can’t spot it.

  • Jen,
    I started with a corned beef brisket from Costco and didn’t notice it weighed 6 lbs., but it only took 4 hours to get really tender. I cooked the meat with the water plus a bottle of beer and it was delicious. I followed your directions for the vegies, but added 4 medium yellow onions quartered. I also cut the cabbage in 8 wedges and placed them sitting up and they browned nicely. Very tasty. And the cream sauce was wonderful on the meat as well as the potatoes.
    This morning I used some of the leftovers to make a corn beef hash. I cut some of the potatoes into 3/4″ chunks, cut up a few onions & carrots, and fried until brown, then added a nice helping of diced corned beef. I cooked poached eggs to place on top. Delicious!
    This is a meal that keeps on giving. Had myself a corned beef sandwich on home made sour dough bread with mustard for lunch.

    We don’t eat a lot of horseradish and normally sauces are barely touched. Surprise, everyone wanted the sauce and enjoyed the flavor.

    Will make this again as it was very easy and tasty.

    The corned beef was tender, the vegetables were crispy and delicious!
    We added another 2 tablespoons of butter for the vegetables to insure they were crisp and it worked out perfectly for us.
    Thank you Jenn for yet another wonderful dinner 😊

    • Hi Tracy, No worries – you can make it without it (it will still be delicious) or you can make your own by combining mustard seeds, coriander seeds, and allspice berries – you’ll need about a teaspoon total. I’d also add one bay leaf. Use any combination depending on what you have in your spice cabinet – it’s not worth running out to the store. Hope that helps!

  • Hi Jenn
    I’m having a belated St Patty’s Day meal tomorrow. I bought two corned beefs, 3.5-4 pounds each. I was hoping to roast both together at the same time. Does the cooking time need to be adjusted or would 3 hours still be ok? Thank you!

    • Hi Janine, I’m guessing it’ll take about 4 hours, but I’d still check it after 3 to see if it’s tender. In terms of timing the vegetables, just take them out when they are cooked and reheat before serving. Hope you enjoy it!

  • Thank you very much for this recipe. I used it today for St Patrick’s Day dinner. I did one corned beef in the crockpot yesterday (for sandwiches tomorrow) which is how I usually cook it. Usually boil the potatoes and carrots, and steam the cabbage. But this recipe was just delicious! The meat was very tender. I got involved with arriving company so the vegetables did not get the attention they should have so they were a little overdone, but very, very tasty. I don’t think anyone could tell that the “secret” ingredient was horseradish, as I don’t think it tasted like horseradish. I will never go back to my old way; this recipe is it for me from now on. PS I did not make the horseradish sauce.

  • Despite being Irish ☘️ , I have never made corned beef and cabbage, nor had the inkling to until this recipe came to my email. It looked so good that I went to the store and bought everything today. It was delicious! I made extra potatoes and extra carrots and cooked the cabbage on a separate pan in my second oven. Everything was delicious! I can say that if you’re not a big fan of horseradish you may want to roast the veggies without it because it’s a pretty strong taste. I, however, love horseradish so the veggies and the sauce were great to me. Served with cold Irish beer for a yummy and festive St. Patrick’s dinner. Thanks Jenn – love your website and use it constantly!!

    Experience has taught me that the bigger the brisket the better it is. Since my local butcher knows this, he saved me a whole corned beef brisket this year: 11.9 lbs.! How much time do you think?? It’s not overly thick, but long to the tip. Thanks!

  • Jenn, Am always so excited to get your new recipes. Those I have tried have been spot on keepers! Have preordered your book and would not hesitate to try any of your recipes on guests because you have become a trusted partner in my kitchen. My question., have made corned beef for years. This year, for the first time, I bought a “first cut” corned beef from Boars Head. It doesn’t look nearly as fatty. It is only 2.480 lbs. Will your oven method still produce a tender corned beef given it doesn’t have that layer of fat? If so, how long should it be roasted?

    • — Rae on March 17, 2018
    • Reply
    • Hi Rae, I always use flat cut corned beef with just a thin layer of fat on the top, and it’s always tender so I wouldn’t worry. And I’ve used this method for corned beef briskets ranging in size from 2 to 4 pounds with no issues – the cook time will be the same. So glad you’re enjoying the recipes…I’d love to know how it turns out!

  • First off the bat I have to admit I did not use corned beef. I just happened to see your recipe before I put a whole chicken in the oven and thought the veggies would be good with it. Kept temp as you suggested and put everything in oven at same time. Had to pull the cabbage out after about an hour and fifteen mins but left carrots and potatoes in til ready. They seemed to take quite a while to carmalise; I actually turned the temp up once the chicken was out and let them crisp up. The horseradish sauce was delicious (especially next day for left overs) but didn’t notice too much difference in the potatoes and carrots that had been drizzled with the horseradish butter. Perhaps because I make your roasted carrots with thyme on a regular basis, I felt the veggies a little underwhelming but I would definitely make the sauce again.

    • Glad you enjoyed, Kathy! I would normally add more salt to the vegetables, which might be what was lacking for you — but since corned beef is brined and quite salty, I purposely under-salt the vegetables so everything is balanced.

  • Hi Jenn, I’m allergic to garlic. Can I just use a flat cut piece of brisket in place of the pre-packaged corned beef in this recipe? Obviously no seasoning packet–just salt and pepper? Just looking for a no muss no fuss way to prepare some clean, lean, moist beef–realize you have a great sounding brisket recipe (I’m also allergic to onions, etc.)–but just need to keep this a little simpler and love the way it cooks covered in the oven. Thank so much for any thoughts you may have.

  • Hi Jenn,
    I was excited to try this recipe and went to the butcher and purchased a great looking beef brisket. As I prepared the ingredients to make the corned beef today, I realized that there is a difference between beef brisket and corned beef brisket. I learned that corned beef brisket has already been cured and one I purchased required at least a week in a salt brine. Perhaps no one else would make this mistake, but thought I would mention it in case! Will try the recipe another time with the correct meat!

  • Hi, Jenn.

    I have always avoided this boiled meal but your looks tempting (I love horseradish!). Before I buy the corned beef, though, what is the difference between “flat cut” and “point cut”? Not so much the technical difference but more like the pluses and minuses of each? I think one reason I never make this dish starts in the grocery store where some people recommend flat and others point…and then I go to the deli, buy it sliced and make Reubens!

    • — Jane on March 16, 2018
    • Reply
    • Hi Jane, The point cut has more fat/marbling. I definitely prefer flat cut corned beef, as it’s leaner and plenty tender. I promise you it is worth making yourself – it reminds me of the fresh-steamed corned beef you find at the best Jewish delis in NYC.

  • Hi Jenn,
    I have never made beef brisket before, but your recipes never fail, so I thought I would try yours. I found a corned beef brisket, but instead of the flat cut, I picked up the more expensive angus. It still looks reasonably flat to me, maybe not as thick? The man behind the meat counter explained that it was a better cut of meat with a little more fat than the flat cut. Would this be ok to use?
    Thanks for your help.

And if I roast two corned beefs, for a total of about 8 pounds, in the same pan, do I still count the time as though it were just one roast, so still the same about 3 hours? Leftovers, you know! I’m going to do half my veggies with your roasting method, and the other half I’ll add to my roasting pan that last hour. Will let you know the feedback from an avid St. Patrick’s Day group! Thanks!

Please advise.

    • Hi Anna, I just added the nutritional info for this. The sodium is quite high (corned beef is salt-cured so that accounts for a lot of it). The recipe specifies that you rinse the corned beef before proceeding which will remove some of the salt. You could also cut back the added salt in the recipe, but anyway you slice it, it’s definitely a high-sodium meal. Hope you enjoy if you make it!
