Corned Beef and Cabbage - in a slow cooker.....

This is my first attempt at cooking Corned Beef and Cabbage. Doing it in the slow cooker is right up my alley. Put it all in the slow cooker and forget it. Nine hours later, a delightful dinner. Don't forget to get your Corned Beef early. Don't wait till all the pieces are picked over and you can't get the one you want. St. Patrick's Day is not far off and you want to be ready.

   
Corned Beef and Cabbage – Slow Cooker Style
4 large carrots, peeled and cut into matchstick pieces
10 baby red potatoes, quartered
1 onion, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 (4 pound) corned beef brisket with spice packet
1 or 2 - 12 ounce bottles of beer (stout is good don't use a light beer)
1/2 head cabbage, coarsely chopped Place the carrots, potatoes, and onion into the bottom of a slow cooker and place the brisket on top of the vegetables. Pour the beer over the brisket. Sprinkle on the spices from the packet, cover, and set the cooker on High. Cook the brisket for about 8 hours. An hour before serving, stir in the cabbage and cook for 1 more hour or till cabbage is done. I like a nice slice of French bread served with it. Feel free to drink any beer you don't need for the brisket.
Serves 8
Till next time.....
