A tasty corned beef casserole made with slow cooked corned beef, veggies, and a creamy cheesy sauce made from scratch!
Lately corned beef has been on sale at my local grocery store, and I’ve been taking advantage! I have corned beef & cabbage, corned beef & potatoes, and even my homemade delicious creamy corned beef casserole recipe. Let me tell you that my family absolutely loves my corned beef casserole! Like seriously, this casserole goes fast because everyone always wants seconds, or even thirds!
I make my corned beef casserole unlike most people. This isn’t a corned beef and potato casserole, or a corned beef casserole with sauerkraut. This is a creamy corned beef casserole recipe made with diced corned beef, mixed vegetables, and a homemade creamy cheesy sauce.
How do I prepare corned beef?
I like to use leftover corned beef. I never use deli meat for this recipe. If I don’t have any leftover corned beef I simply place the corned beef in the slow cooker, and sprinkle in the package of seasoning that comes with it, and cook on high for 6 hours ( for 2-3 lbs of corned beef). Once the corned beef is done, I remove it from the slow cooker, and dice it.
This corned beef casserole recipe is really easy, and can easily be cut in half, doubled, or even tripled..
