Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage


Join us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays at Blessed With Grace.

Edited to add:  Tina at Mom's Crazy Cooking has invited me to link this post to her This Week's Cravings Linky Party.  This week's theme is Go Green for Saint Patrick's Day, so be sure to check out her blog for some great "green" recipes.  Thanks Tina for letting me join!

 

I didn't grow up eating Corned Beef and Cabbage.  As a matter of fact I grew up detesting cabbage, there was no way I was ever going to eat it.  To me it looked awful, smelled awful, and there was just no way I was ever going to eat.  Then I met my husband.  He loves Corned Beef and Cabbage.  He made me try it.  Guess what I liked it.  Actually, it's one of my favorite foods now.  However, we don't eat it very often.  We traditionally have it twice a year, on New Years Day and on Saint Patricks Day.  We may have it scattered in between here and there through out the year but not too often. 

It took me a while to learn how to cook it though.  I started out just throwing the cabbage, corned beef, and the seasoning packet it comes with in the crockpot but eventually started trying different recipes.  I have finally developed a recipe that I love, and it has become my tried and true Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe.  In fact I wrote a Tempt My Tummy Tuesday post on it last March.

With Saint Patrick's Day right only two days away I thought it would be the perfect time to revisit that post, which you can find here.

  4. Looks fantastic. Too bad people only eat corned beef & cabbage for meal a year. I, on the other hand, stocked up so we can have it a little more often. :o)

  5. I stocked up on it this time around as well. I bought about ten corned beefs, so I am hoping that will last us a little while.
