Tasty Tuesday: Crock-Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage
I am in the middle of rewriting a novel, and am trying to put as much time as I can into it. On account of which, I needed both an easy recipe to make today and an easy one to post about. As it turns out, both of those are the same recipe.
Crock-pot Corned Beef and Cabbage
It's simple, really:
Turn the crock-pot on low.
Peel and chunk several carrots and throw them in.
Put the corned beef brisket in, spices and all.
Chunk an onion and put it in.
Add a cup or so of water.
Let it cook for several hours. When there are about two hours to go, chop a head of cabbage. Push the pieces down into the liquid.
Turn the crock-pot to high and let cook till dinner-time.
It would probably be good with Irish soda bread, but I never seem to have buttermilk around, and bread of any sort just isn't that quick or easy. Maybe someday. At least we had beer with it...
