Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

corn beef 1 

While I have never thought about myself as Irish, I do have some Irish heritage. My maternal grandmother’s maiden name was Flannigan, so I assume that gives me some Irish blood. Even though, I have never claimed to be Irish,  I’ll take their food traditions any way I can get them.

This Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage (I bet you noticed there is carrots and potatoes in there, too) was so easy and delicious! I do have to admit I was a bit surprised by how much the meat shrank during the cooking process. The 4 lb brisket looked very small after 8 hours in the crock pot. After it was shredded, there was plenty of meat to go around. Cutting down on meat consumption is a good thing anyway. 

I hope you have a chance to enjoy some Irish fare over the next few days. Don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, too much. Enjoy!

        Definitely not technically Irish but so many people associate it with St. Paddy’s Day. Thanks for stopping by.
