Happy St. Patrick's Day with Corned Beef & Cabbage!

Corned Beef & Cabbage in the Crockpot!

What's more Irish than a traditional recipe for corned beef and cabbage? Serve with mustard or horseradish if desired.

* 1 Corned beef brisket WITH the season packet ... I get the cheaper Tip that's on sale this time of year)
* Pickling Spice
* 1 bottle of a dark beer... Killians Red or Guinness is great!
* 1 head of green cabbage ... sliced
* New potatoes (either red or white is fine) quartered

a few Carrots (optional) Sliced

Place the corned beef in a colander in the sink and rinse well under cold running water. Trim off fat.

Place the corned beef in a large crockpot (slo cooker) add beer & add enough water to cover brisket. Add spice pack & another Tablespoon of pickling spice. Cover & let slow cook several hours... until meet will pull apart with 2 forks.

Take out the brisket & pull apart with 2 forks (or slice) put back in crockpot & Add the cabbage, potatoes & sliced Carrots to the cooking liquid & slow cook until the vegetables are tender.

Leftover corned beef makes great corned beef hash. Saute chopped onions in oil... add chopped corned beef & potatoes with a little of the liquid. Salt & pepper to taste. Let fry on low... chopping as you stir. Serve with poached eggs. YUMMY!
