Crockpot Corned Beef and Cabbage

It is almost St. Patrick’s Day and that means corned beef and cabbage and green beer! This is a fuss free way to make this traditional meal.
Start by pouring a can of beer over the beef.
Add your onions and spread on the mustard. Sprinkle with the seasoning packet that came with the meat.
Mix up the brown sugar and water.
Pour into crockpot.
Halfway through the cooking time (the recipe said to add the carrots at the beginning but I don’t like them mushy so I waited and added them later) I added my carrots and potatoes (The recipe didn’t call for potatoes but I knew my picky eater would eat them so I tossed two in). Add your cabbage.
Remove the corned beef, wrap in foil and place in a warm oven.
Let the veggies cook for an additional 30 minutes.

    I will attempt this tomorrow, I will use apple cider instead of water. Canned beer will be exchanged for bottle beer from Ireland. It shall be great! I have foreseen it.

  3. This sounds wonderful. I never mad this in a crockpot befor. I will try it. I also made a gravy with melted butter and flower and mustard, then stir in some of the juice. Any good good gravy recipe with less calories?
