St. Patty's Day Recipe

If you don't already own a crock pot, I would get one asap.   They aren't that expensive and I actually picked mine up at Target three years ago on sale for $12.99.  The best thing about crock pots is that you put all the stuff in the pot in the morning, you set the temperature and anywhere from 4-10 hours later depending on the recipe you have a pretty good meal.

This is for Corned Beef and Cabbage and it will cook on low from 11-12 hours or high from 5-6 hours.

You will need:
6 carrots (peeled and cut into sizes of your choice)
2 onions (cut in big slices)
2-3 lb. corned beef with seasoning
12oz. can of beer
2 tblsp  yellow mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
8 wedges cabbage (1-2 heads)

Put carrots and onion in crock pot.  Rinse corned beef and pat dry.  Place corned beef in CP and sprinkle with seasonings that come with the meat.  Pour beer over meat and the spread mustard on beef.  In a small bowl mix sugar and water, the pour over meat.  Cover CP and put on low for 11-12 hours or high for 5-6.  Remove corned beef and cover with foil to keep warm.  Add cabbage wedges to CP and put CP on high for 30-40 minutes.  Slice corned beef against the grain and serve with mustard.

I make this every year and love it.  Hope you enjoy it too.
