Corned Beef and Cabbage 

  • 3-4 pounds lean corned beef brisket
  • 1/2 pound fingerlings potatoes
  • 1 small onion, cut into 1 inch wedges
  • 3 celery stalks, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 5 carrots, peeled & cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 head of Savoy cabbage, cut into 1 inch wedges
  1. Place corned beef into crock pot.
  2. Sprinkle with spice packet (that comes with corned beef) or 3 Tablespoons pickling spice.
  3. Layer carrots, potatoes, onion, and celery over meat.
  4. Add enough hot water to cover meat by 1 inch (4-5 cups).
  5. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  6. After 8 hours, add cabbage and cook on high for 45 minutes.
  7. Thinly slice meat against the grain and serve with vegetables.

Note: Whole Foods makes a GREAT brined corned beef (omit Step 2).

*I recommend serving with grainy mustard or a yummy mixture of creme fraiche with some freshly grated horseradish.
