Corned Beef and Cabbage is an Irish-American tradition, not one commonly found in Ireland. None the less, it is a tradition many of us treasure and cook only 1 time a year. I always prepare this dish in my trusty Crock Pot and it’s perfect every time. This time I chose to omit the carrots and go with a basic beef, potato, onion, and cabbage meal.
Pair this dish with Irish Soda Bread and a beer (green) and have yourself a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
1 raw corned beef roast (3-4 pounds)
1 head cabbage washed and cut into wedges
8 red skinned potatoes, washed
3 carrots (optional)
2-3 medium onions (optional)
1 cup water
salt and pepper
Place corned beef brisket in crock pot and top with vegetables, water, salt and pepper. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. If you like your cabbage a bit crisper, you can add the cabbage 2-3 hours before serving.
