St Patrick’s Day Fun and Food
We also think Corned beef and cabbage : )
I cook this every year around St Patrick’s Day (and any other time I can get away with it, LOL). So today I thought I’d share my take on the recipe.
CROCKPOT CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
1 (3 to 4 lb.) corned beef brisket
1 large head cabbage (preferably savoy)
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 pound carrots, peeled
6 large potatoes
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. black pepper, ground
Wash brisket. Using a small sharp knife, cut tiny X slits in the meat and insert garlic cloves pieces.
Place the meat in a large Crock-Pot and cover with water.
Bring to a boil on high setting. Boil for 10 minutes, skimming off the grey foam that rises to the surface using a wire skimmer or large spoon.
Reduce heat to lower setting and allow to simmer (not boil) for 5 hours, adding water as needed to keep covered.
Meanwhile, prepare vegetables. Quarter the cabbage, dice potatoes and carrots.
During last few hours, add vegetables and continue to cook until vegetables are tender.
