Corned Beef: An Irish Favorite

I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! In honor of the Irish, I'm sharing this easy corned beef recipe, created especially for your crock pot.  It's from one of my favorite cookbooks, Mabel Hoffman's Crockery Cookery.

Ms. Hoffman says to choose your favorite mustard to accompany this dish, and that steamed cabbage is a traditional side dish.  Enjoy!

Corned Beef

1 (2 1/2 to 3 lb) corned beef brisket with pickling spices
1 medium onion, chopped
1 carrot peeled and coarsely shredded
1 clove garlic, minced or pureed

Place corned beef in a slow cooker.  Top with pickling spices, onion, carrot and garlic.  Add enough water to cover meat.  Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 9 hours or until meat is tender.  Remove from cooker; slice and serve.

Do you have a favorite corned beef recipe?  Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Wow, this is the last thing I expected to find on an American blog! Being Irish, I grew up eating this gorgeous dish (oh, wow, I'm feeling homesick now) but I never cook it now as I live in India and am married into a vegetarian family.

Well, Maria, thanks for the bit of nostalgia. I hope that you had a lovely St. Patricks' Day. I did - well as good as it's possible to have outside the Emerald Isle!
