Happy St. Patrick's Day!

8 x 10 Irish Blessing Typography by JMPaper on Etsy, $15.00

From this (partially) Irish family to yours, Happy St. Patrick's day! Are you wearing green? To celebrate, we have a large corned beef, onions, carrots and cabbage in the crockpot waiting for us when we get home.

I based my recipe on the one from Skinny Taste, although made mine slightly less ... skinny, by adding beer. Oops.

Crockpot Corned Beef
2 lb corned beef (mine came with the corning spices)
4 Irish beers, such as Guinness
6-8 large carrots
1 head of cabbage
1 onion, chopped into quarters

Place corned beef in the bottom of the crockpot. Add corning spices (don't make the mistake I made one year, when I didn't notice the little bag of spices and cooked the bag - plastic and all - along with the meat #oops.). Add carrots and onion. Fill crockpot with beer (I used about 4). Cook on low all day. About an hour before you're ready to serve, add your cabbage (if you like it extra cooked, add earlier). My crockpot is set on low for 10 hours, we like it a little more "shredded." If you like it more like steak slices you can cook on high for 4-6 hours.
