Classic Corned Beef & Cabbage Made Easy
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 11 hours
• 6 carrots, cut into chunks
• 2 onions, chopped
• 2-3 lbs. corned beef brisket with seasoning packet
• 12 oz. can beer (non-alcoholic is fine)
• 2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
• 1/4 cup brown sugar
• 1 cup water
• 8 wedges cabbage
In 4-6 quart crockpot, combine carrots and onions. Place corned beef in crockpot and sprinkle with contents of seasoning mix. Pour beer over brisket and spread mustard on brisket. In small bowl mix brown sugar with water and pour over brisket. Cover crockpot and cook on low setting for 10-12 hours.
Remove corned beef from crockpot and cover with foil, then put into 200 degrees Fahrenheit oven to keep warm. Add cabbage wedges to vegetables and liquid in crockpot. Cover crockpot and cook on high for additional 30-40 minutes or until cabbage is crisp tender. Check it periodically for any burning.
Serve and enjoy. In St. Patrick’s Day fashion create a green beer if you are of age. For those of you that are not of age create some green milk to enjoy with your dinner.
