THE RECIPE

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

A fuss-free St. Patty's Day meal

Having people over for a St. Patty’s Day celebration and looking for a simple yet traditional way to feed the crowd? This corned beef and cabbage couldn’t be easier. Add a pre-brined uncooked cut of corned beef brisket into your slow cooker along with pickling spices and just let it go. After 8 hours, when the beef is almost done, nestle wedges of cabbage and chunks of potatoes and carrots on top, letting them steam in the juices released from the corned beef. When you’re ready to eat, slice the brisket and serve it family-style on a big platter with the vegetables, a good Irish bread, and plenty of whole grain mustard to dip into. The beauty of this recipe is that since it requires nearly no attention, you’re free to enjoy the festivities with a few extra pints. Have leftovers? No problem! Just turn the corned beef and veggies into hash the next morning!
