With St. Patrick’s day quickly approaching I have been starting to feel the Irish spirit. Perhaps the Irish Soda Bread had a little bit to do with it.
While I do have a few crock pot recipes under my beginner chef belt, I have never really attempted a traditional and beloved dish such as corned beef and cabbage. Yes, yes.. I know what you’re thinking… Aren’t you a vegetarian? What do you know about a good corned beef and cabbage? While I am a vegetarian, I didn’t grow up that way and often that smell of corned beef slowing cooking at my Mom’s house makes me rethink my vegetarian lifestyle.
Who knew such a delicious recipe could be so simple!
1 corned beef brisket
salt, pepper, and 1 bay leaf
Handful of carrots, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cabbage, chopped
Add everything to a crock pot
Fill with enough water to cover the corned beef
Cook on low for 8 hours
Katie’s Tip: Make sure to get a good cut of corned beef or it will be mostly grizzle.
